The catalog lists yearlings by leading 2022 freshman stallions Justify, Good Magic, Sharp Azteca, and Mendelssohn, as well as youngsters by Violence, Bernardini, Tapiture, Midshipman, Jimmy Creed, Midnight Lute, Paynter, Practical Joke, Goldencents, Kantharos, and Keen Ice, sire of 2022 Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike.

I have been very impressed by this yearling crop, both regionally and nationally, and am looking forward to the sale on Aug. 29.” Texas and regional stallion power will also be on display this year, featuring yearlings by Texas' top sires Too Much Bling, Bradester, My Golden Song, and Competitive Edge, as well as regional leaders like Star Guitar and El Deal. “Our Texas and regional programs have gotten stronger in recent years, and I think this year's yearling group is a sign of that,” Bridewell added. “We have a lot of pedigrees that have stakes influence both nationally and locally and that's a sign of the growth our sale has made in recent years.” Notable yearlings cataloged: Hip 2: Louisiana-bred colt by Half Ours who is a half sibling to two stakes winners, including 2021 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity winner Streak of Silver.
