Fasig-Tipton, the granddaddy of thoroughbred auction houses, has been the go-to spot for horse enthusiasts since its establishment in 1898. It holds the title of the oldest thoroughbred auction company in North America. Imagine horse professionals in the early 20th century gathered in none other than Madison Square Garden, New York, the original stomping ground for the sale. Over the years, Fasig-Tipton has seen some legendary sales, including the great Man o’ War in 1918 and Seattle Slew, the Triple Crown winner.

In 1972, Fasig-Tipton set its permanent roots in the heart of horse country—Lexington, Kentucky. Since then, it has continued to be a beacon for thoroughbred sales, attracting buyers and sellers from around the globe. One of the most anticipated events on its calendar is the July Sale. This event is known for producing equine athletes. It was number one among major yearling sales in North America in 2022 for winners sold, including stakes winners.

The July Sale: A Highlight of the Year

The Fasig-Tipton July Sale is the summer blockbuster of the horse auction world. This annual event showcases a stunning array of yearlings, offering buyers a chance to invest in future racing champions. The sale typically features a select group of young horses meticulously bred and prepared for their debut in the sales ring.

What sets the July Sale apart is the quality and pedigree of the horses on offer. Buyers can expect to see yearlings from some of the best bloodlines in the industry, making it a prime opportunity to secure a horse with the potential for greatness.

Tips for Buyers: How to Get Ready for the Sale

1. Do Your Homework: Before attending the sale, research the pedigrees and performance records of the yearlings on offer. Fasig-Tipton provides a catalog that includes comprehensive details about each horse, so take the time to review it thoroughly.

2. Set a Budget: It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the auction, so determine your spending limit beforehand. Stick to your budget to avoid any post-auction regrets.

3. Inspect the Horses: Arrive early to inspect the horses in person. Pay attention to their conformation, movement, and overall health. Don’t hesitate to ask consignors and veterinarians for their insights.

4. Consult with Experts: If you’re new to horse buying, consider consulting an experienced advisor or bloodstock agent. Their expertise can be invaluable in making informed decisions.

5. Stay Calm and Collected: Auctions can be intense, but remaining composed is essential. Bid with confidence, but don’t let emotions drive your decisions.
