Fasig-Tipton Adds Broodmare Dispersal to Upcoming July Sales; Will Accept Additional Breeding Stock Entries
Fasig-Tipton has added a breeding stock dispersal to its upcoming July sales schedule in Lexington, Kentucky. The company will offer 18 mares as part of the Far From Over/Fountain of Youth Dispersal, with consignor Stuart Morris acting as agent for the dispersal.
The group of mares are property of a partnership supporting young stallion Far From Over. The graded stakes winning son of Blame, out of Alchemist, had been standing at stud in California before suffering a pelvis injury early in this year’s breeding season that took him out of service for 2021. The remainder of the mares that were not bred to him were then shipped back to Kentucky and bred to Kentucky stallions, and due to the circumstances, the partnership has opted to disperse all of its holdings.
All mares offered are in foal to Connect, Far From Over, or Violence. They will be sold with their 2021 foals at their sides, which are by Catalina Cruiser, Enticed, Good Magic, Honor Code, Laoban, Oscar Performance, Violence, and Yoshida. All foals were foaled in Kentucky or California.
With the addition of this dispersal, Fasig-Tipton will now accept additional approved broodmares and broodmare prospects. The dispersal and additional breeding stock entries will be offered in a separate session and catalogue – named July Breeding Stock – prior to the start of the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale on Monday, July 12.
Fasig-Tipton will accept breeding stock entries over the next few weeks. The catalogue will go online and in the equineline sales catalogue app on July 1. Print catalogues will be available on-site at Fasig-Tipton at sale time.
“This dispersal offers buyers a quality group of mares, with well-bred foals at foot,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “It also allows us to open up broodmare and broodmare prospect entries to other prospective sellers that may prefer to sell now, instead of waiting for the fall breeding stock sales. It creates a unique mid-summer buying opportunity for breeders.”
Browning continued: “We have considered adding a breeding stock element to July for many years, and this year’s session will be a good barometer to see if there is viable market for broodmares in July going forward.”
The mares and foals will sell on Monday, July 12, prior to the start of the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale which will also be conducted that day. The next day, on Tuesday, July 13, Fasig-Tipton will conduct The July Sale of Selected Yearlings.
