Fasig-Tipton Day 1 Sales Topper
Last year’s sale topper, the filly Gamine bought by agent Donato Lanni on behalf of Michael Lund Petersen, for a record $1.8 million price tag, was at it again when the duo teamed up to purchase my number one selection Hip #118 , a stunning dark brown/black colt from Uncle Mo out of the Mineshaft stakes performing filly “Miss Ocean City”, who broke her maiden at first asking with jockey John Velazquez at historic Saratoga. This athletic colt breezed in :10 flat over the Timonium oval on day one of the under tack show, sold for a whopping $1.1 million dollars.
My second choice on my Short list Hip #151 sold for $325,000 to cool Breeze Racing. This roan colt by Liam’s Map out of One Foxy Grey covered the 1/4 in :20.4 with very little coaxing by the rider.
Day 2 continues tomorrow at 11:00 am with more of my top 10 selected future stars.
Feel free to review my Short List for other notables and videos for potential future Classic Stake Winners.
