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. I also put stallion limits on myself as well, I only allow myself to pick no more than 20 per stallion and I limit myself to only $10 million dollars for each stallion as well that way I don't go picking all one stallion. Below are the stallion totals and combined purchase prices as well as a list …
