There may have been no shortage of hard-knocking racehorses to be found in the pages of Fasig-Tipton’s July Selected Horses of Racing Age catalog, but Jalen Journey had no trouble standing out.
The grand opening of the North American yearling sales season, The July Sale of selected yearlings is a premier event showcasing precocious yearlings with superior physical conformation.
Consigned as Hip 1299 by Four Star Sales, the filly was purchased by Tracy Farmer, with trainer Mark Casse signing the ticket.
Consigned by Four Star Sales as Hip 181, the Orb filly is out of the Forest Wildcat mare Fashion Cat, who is a half sister to grade 1 winner Peace Rules and stakes winner Wild Fashion.
The operation’s purchases were topped by Hip 163, a $700,000 son of Spendthrift stallion Malibu Moon. Offered by Four Star Sales, the Pennsylvania-bred bay is out of the Street Cry mare Cloud Jumper.

With short yearlings a hot commodity at winter mixed sales, it’s not surprising that the catalog for the Feb. 6-7 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky auction includes offspring of fashionable sires such as Uncle Mo, Curlin, and Dialed In.
But the stallion with the greatest number of yearlings in the catalog is the more obscure San Pablo, a 9-year-old son of Jump Start represented by seven foals of 2016. The horse, who stands at Phoenix Farm near Paris, Ky. for a $6,500 live foal fee, entered stud in New York in 2014 and his first foals are 2-year-olds of 2017.
