Kentucky Derby hero Super Saver will be represented by his first crop to hit the yearling sales market next month, as five yearlings are cataloged to sell at the Fasig-Tipton July Sale on July 15 in Lexington, KY.
Super Saver has gotten off to a great start at stud, breeding over 270 mares in his first two books. His first weanlings were well-received by the market in 2012, as 22 of them sold at public auction for an average of $61,000, with a handful of weanlings commanding six figures.

A WinStar homebred, Super Saver established a stakes record while winning the Kentucky Jockey Club S. (G2) as a 2-year-old, before returning to Churchill at three for his Kentucky Derby (G1) triumph. Todd Pletcher was quoted in saying “He was my fastest 2-year-old” after Super Saver broke his maiden at Belmont earlier in the 2-year-old season.
Super Saver currently stands at WinStar for a fee of $20,000 stands and nurses.
