From Foal To Finish Line™: Sales

The ability to know the potential of a horse before he goes to the sales ring is of utmost importance.

To determine that potential, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds, LLC has created the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® software which analyzes the breeding influences in the five-generation pedigree.

The profile software assigns each horse a numerical score and grade ranking which is the indicator of that horse’s potential. The higher the score, the more potential that horse has in becoming a quality stakes winner or classic champion.

The Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® is a valuable Thoroughbred sales analytical tool that shows buyers at auction how make the best decisions and investments when buying horses.

The profile Shows buyers at auction how to save on their time and monetary investments by helping them to zero in on the horses that have the best potential to become graded stakes winners or a Classic Champion Thoroughbred.

In 2016, we debuted our Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® software as a sales analytical tool at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Of 2,334 yearling colts, we profiled 101 colts that had an A or A+ grade ranking and from that sales list we now have 13 horses that are either winners or placers in graded stakes and stakes races: five are graded stakes winners, four are graded or group-placed, one horse is a stakes winner and three others are stakes-placed. Also, four horses from our sales list ran in the 2018 Kentucky Derby:

Eclipse Champion Two Year Old Colt, GOOD MAGIC (Hip 845), winner of the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Stakes (G1) and Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2)VINO ROSSO (Hip 528), winner of the Wood Memorial Stakes (G2)FREE DROP BILLY (Hip 104), winner of the Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity Stakes (G1), and the multiple graded-stakes placed SOLOMINI (Hip 662).

In addition, we also have from that 2016 sales list Matt Winn Stakes (G3) winner KING ZACHARY (Hip 956) and Grey Stakes (G3) winner ARCHAGGELOS (Hip 2138). HOLLYWOOD STAR (Hip 395) is a multiple graded stakes-placed colt. Graded stakes-placed colts are MISSISSIPPI (Hip 888) and COAT OF ARMS (IRE), (Hip 446), a Group-placed colt in Ireland.
