Yearling Picks 2017

With the Keeneland September Yearling Sale concluding today, and that pretty much meaning the end of the yearling sales season, I decided to publish my top picks from the three major sales this year. I limited myself to 300 horses total and $70 million spent, and I came in under that number picking out 291 yearlings for $69.88 million. The bulk of them were selected at the Keeneland sale with 247 coming from the 6 book marathon that is the September Sale, 35 came from the Fasig Tipton Saratoga sale which is held in August,  and 11 of them were selected from the Fasig Tipton July sale. I will provide monthly updates as to what is happening with my selected yearlings starting in December.

Absolutely love his Holy Bull win. He showed a fantastic ability to relax on the inside of runners and finish with an absolute flourish. Kiaran has even said this colt is ahead of Frosted and Cairo Prince at this stage in the game those are some pretty talented horses. He easily crushed Greenpointcrusader who I thought would give him more of a challenge then he did. The way Mohaymen re-broke at the top of the stretch gave me goosebumps this is one very special racehorse. Hopefully he stays sound and we will see just how incredibly special this colt is.
