2020 NAR Champion Two-year-old Filly Solo Unit(JPN)'s half-sister Hip 14 by Curren Black Hill(JPN) is a stand-out pedigree in the catalog.

One hundred thirty-four different stallions are represented over the three days. G1 February Stakes winner Moanin(USA) leads the way with 23 lots, his first crop set to debut next year. JPN1 JBC Sprint winner Danon Legend(USA) has 20 lots in the sale. G1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen winner Big Arthur(JPN) had his first graded stakes winner earlier this year in the G3 Hakodate Nisai Stakes. He has 16 lots in the sale. Promising young sire Silver State(JPN) has eight lots in the sale. Drefong(USA), American Patriot(USA), and Isla Bonita(JPN) all have had graded stakes success this year as their first crops blossom as three-year-olds. They have seven, three, and five lots respectively in the sale. Satono Aladdin(JPN) has been slower to blossom, but he looks to have some promising Southern Hemisphere prospects. He has four lots in the September sale.

Two-year-old racing is rolling along full steam ahead in Japan now, with Mind Your Biscuits(USA) in the lead among first crop sires as of August. He has four lots in the sale. Satono Crown(JPN) technically has more winners though being in second place due to earnings. He has seven lots in the sale. Shanghai Bobby(USA) has even more wins than the rest, so he is off to a brilliant start. He has eight in the sale. Declaration of War(USA) and Beach Patrol(USA) are neck and neck in the fourth and fifth position in the rankings and have four and nine lots in the sale, respectively.

New sires are always hot, and no one has been hotter than Bricks and Mortar(USA) at the sales this year. He has one in the sale. Other interesting first-season imported stallions are New Year's Day(USA), Thunder Snow(IRE), Hawkbill(USA), and California Chrome(USA). They have one, three, six, and six yearlings in the sale.
