The Gulfstream Sale of selected two-year-olds in training will take place at Hallandale Beach, Florida, at 4 PM on March 1 this year. Fasig-Tipton has cataloged a total of 162 juveniles for the sale, which will be held at the waking ring in Gulfstream Park. There will also be an under track show set to start at 10 AM on February 27.
“This sale has a lot of momentum coming off two highly successful renewals since moving to Gulfstream Park in 2015,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “This catalog reflects that momentum, with increased numbers and outstanding quality.”
2016 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Nyquist, a 2015 sales graduate, graces the cover of this year’s catalog.
“There is no better advertisement for a sale than selling the Kentucky Derby winner,” said Browning. “It’s a great testament to the quality of horses our consignors offer at Gulfstream, and to the success that buyers are finding from purchasing these horses off a proven dirt track. Prior to winning the Kentucky Derby, Nyquist won the (Xpressbet.com) Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream 13 months after he had performed over the very same racetrack in our under tack show.”
The sales topper last year was a Tapit son, who was sold for $1.8 million. Copies of this year’s catalog can be picked up on January 30. You can also download the catalog via the Equineline sales catalog app or download it online from the Fasig-Tipton website.
