The annual Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale of two-year-olds in training returns to its traditional spot immediately following the Preakness. The sale, for which breezes were held last week, takes place May 17-18 at the Timonium fairgrounds.

Below, our breakdown of the sale by the numbers (all before outs):

SIRE POWER

Practical Joke was a three-time Grade 1 winner on the racetrack, and he’s a son of top sire Into Mischief out of a Distorted Humor mare. That’s a pretty solid resume to be a stallion, and his eldest are two-year-olds this year. He leads the pack with 16 entered. Here are all the sires with 10 or more entered:

STATE BY STATE

This year’s sale is all about the Kentucky-breds; nearly 350 of them are scheduled to be offered. Midlantic-breds play a much lesser role here than they do in the company’s yearling and mixed sales, with Pennsylvania and Maryland one-two among the home team.

DAMSIRES

It’s all about lineage in the breeding game, and even though he’s been dead eight years, Unbridled’s Song continues to play an outsized role. He’s the co-leading damsire — tied with Malibu Moon — with 14 entered. Here are the damsires represented by eight or more hips.
