More than half the horses in the sale are broodmares or broodmare prospects, numbering 1,290 in the catalog, including Island Fashion, the winner of three Grade 1 races lifetime. Island Fashion, 6, is being sold as a racing or broodmare prospect.

Also among the broodmare lots is Elbaaha, the dam of dual Grade 1 winner Electrocutionist. Elbaaha is being sold in foal to Montjeu, who stands in Europe. The filly is out of the Sky Classic mare Isabella Rose.

The sale's 924 yearling lots include a filly from the last crop of Danzig, the highly influential stallion who was euthanized on Tuesday because of the infirmities of old age.
