Partial Reduction of Lovacres Ranch Featured in Fasig-Tipton’s August Digital Selected Sale

Fasig-Tipton’s upcoming August Digital Selected Sale will feature a partial reduction of Terry Lovingier’s Lovacres Ranch.  The August Digital Selected Sale will be conducted on from August 25-30.

The Lovacres offerings consist of 31 broodmares or broodmare prospects, and seven horses of racing age.  Included among these are broodmare prospect Fi Fi Pharoah, a stakes winning daughter of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.  Headlining the horses of racing age is E Z Pharis, a stakes performing two-year-old daughter of American Pharoah.  Following an impressive debut win at Santa Anita on April 30, she earned black type with a strong third in the Fasig-Tipton Debutante S. on June 18 at Santa Anita.

Terry Lovingier and his Southern California-based Lovacres Ranch have been at the forefront of California racing and breeding for many years.  Lovingier has bred or owned in partnership nine California-bred Champions.  Last year was an especially banner year for the program, as Lovingier campaigned both the Champion California-bred Two-Year-Old Male and Female in Finneus and At the Spa, respectively, in partnership.  The program was also named Champion Breeder of California Foaled Thoroughbreds by Earnings; owned Broodmare of the Year My Fiona in partnership; and claimed Champion First-Crop Sire of California by Earnings honors for stallion Govenor Charlie.

Lovacres currently stands seven stallions, including Stay Thirsty, California’s leading sire of 2018, 2019, and 2021.  Also the state’s current leading sire in 2022, Stay Thirsty is represented as covering sire of several mares being offered as part of the Lovacres reduction.

“I love horse racing,” said Lovingier.  “I’m not going anywhere, but the with the success of Stay Thirsty I just need to make room for more outside mares at the farm.  This reduction is necessary to expand boarding and breeding opportunities for clients of Lovacres.”

“The Lovacres racing and breeding program has raised and campaigned many of the top horses in the California-bred program,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton’s Director of Digital Sales.  “This partial reduction gives buyers access to a program with a tremendous track record of success.”

Fasig-Tipton’s August Digital Selected Sale opens for bidding this coming Thursday, August 25 and closes on Tuesday, August 30. In addition to the Lovacres offerings, there are currently an additional 27 entries of breeding stock and horses of racing age that will be offered in the catalogue.
