MyRacehorse will offer ownership in six yearlings that were purchased at the recent Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale of selected yearlings. The yearlings, referred to as the “Fasig Select Six, each come with a $2-million bonus designed specifically for horses purchased by MyRacehorse at the 2021 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale. For colts, the bonus would be paid if any were to win the GI Kentucky Derby and for the fillies, the bonus would be paid for a GI Kentucky Oaks victory.
