Two-Hundred-Twelve yearlings made the catalog for the 2022 Texas Summer Yearling Sale, presented by the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Lone Star Park. The sale will be held on August 29th at the sales pavilion at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.
The sale will feature a good mix of regional and national stallion and pedigree influence. The catalog lists yearlings by leading 2022 freshman stallions Justify, Good Magic, Sharp Azteca, and Mendelssohn, as well as youngsters by Violence, Bernardini, Tapiture, Midshipman, Jimmy Creed, Midnight Lute, Paynter, Practical Joke, Goldencents, Kantharos, and Keen Ice, sire of 2022 Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike. First crop stallions Mitole, Vino Rosso, Flameaway, Catalina Cruiser, Coal Front, Enticed, Breaking Lucky, Code West, and Preservationist are represented.
“This book represents the best of the best that this region has to offer,” TTA Sales Director Foster Bridewell said. “Our breeders, owners, and consignors really delivered with quality stallions, families, and physicals. I have been very impressed by this yearling crop, both regionally and nationally, and am looking forward to the sale on August 29th.”
Texas and regional stallion power will also be on display this year, featuring yearlings by Texas’ top sires Too Much Bling, Bradester, My Golden Song, and Competitive Edge, as well as regional leaders like Star Guitar and El Deal.
“Our Texas and regional programs have gotten stronger in recent years, and I think this year’s yearling group is a sign of that,” Bridewell added. “We have a lot of pedigrees that have stakes influence both nationally and locally and that’s a sign of the growth our sale has made in recent years.”
