Catalogue Released for Fasig-Tipton’s “Night of the Stars”

Fasig-Tipton has released its catalogue for The November Sale, billed as the “Night of the Stars,” to take place Sunday, Nov. 8, the day after the Breeders’ Cup World Championships across town at Keeneland.

The Sunday afternoon and evening sale, which is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. ET at Fasig-Tipon’s Newtown Paddocks location near Lexington, features an exceptional group of broodmares, racing prospects, and weanlings among its 264 entries. The first 159 horses through the ring will be weanlings, with 105 mares following.

A stellar group of mares has been assembled, including such standout stars as triple Grade I winner Bast (Uncle Mo), carrying her first foal by Justify; 2019 Eclipse champion older female and five-time Grade I winner Midnight Bisou (Midnight Lute); champion and six-time Grade I winner Monomoy Girl (Tapizar); champion and quadruple Grade I winner Uni (GB) (More Than Ready), who was last seen winning Saturday’s GI First Lady S.; and six-time Grade I winner Rushing Fall (More Than Ready).

In addition, nine of the highly anticipated first weanlings by Horse of the Year Justify are in the sale, giving North American buyers their first opportunity to secure a foal by the Triple Crown winner.
