LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Friday, April 19, 2024) – Churchill Downs and Fasig-Tipton have announced a new three-year partnership where the prestigious sales company will be the official sponsor of the La Troienne (Grade I), Fleur de Lis (GII) and Locust Grove (GII).

“We’re thrilled to team with Fasig-Tipton for this three-race series,” said Gary Palmisano, Vice President of Racing for Churchill Downs Incorporated. “Fasig-Tipton brings unmatched prestige to these iconic filly and mare stakes races at Churchill Downs and we couldn’t be more honored to have them onboard.”

“We are pleased to partner with Churchill Downs to sponsor three important filly and mare stakes races. Fasig-Tipton is synonymous with selling the sport’s top females, so this is a perfect partnership for us,” said Boyd Browing, Fasig-Tipton President.

The $1 million Fasig-Tipton La Troienne will kick off the series. Run at 1 1/16-miles on Kentucky Oaks Day, this year’s La Troienne Stakes is expected to include two Eclipse Award winners: Idiomatic and Pretty Mischievous.

The Fasig-Tipton Fleur de Lis, run Saturday, June 29 during Stephen Foster Day, is part of the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Dozen Bonus Series and will award the top three finishers a partial travel credit should they compete in the Breeders’ Cup Longines Distaff (GI) on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Del Mar.

The Fasig-Tipton Locust Grove, run during the September Meet, has proven to be a crucial
steppingstone to the Breeders’ Cup Distaff with previous winners including Fasig-Tipton graduates Blue Prize (ARG), Search Results and Shedaresthedevil.
