Hip 48 – Filly by Kitten’s Joy out of You’re Beautiful, by Storm Cat – this filly is out of the young Storm Cat mare so, looking back in the pedigree, one will find quite a female family. You’re Beautiful is half to producers Tizdubai, Tizbud, Tizamazing, and Tizso. The latter two mares produced stakes winners Oxbow and Paynter. You’re Beautiful is also half to the sire Tiznow. The filly being sold is bred on the same cross as Stephanie’s Kitten and Bobby’s Kitten.
Hip 216 – Colt by Distorted Humor out of Cascading, by A.P. Indy – This colt could possibly be the sales topper, or at least, day one sales topper. His pedigree screams classic, and he has a lovely family. The dam is half to Streaming, highly regarded in her time on the track. The third dam produced classic winners Rags to Riches (Belmont Stakes) and Jazil (Belmont Stakes). This colt is bred on the same cross as Any Given Saturday, Z Humor, and Brethren.
Hip 310 – Colt by Arch out of Danzig’s Humor, by Lemon Drop Kid – this colt is bred for turf distance races, but his pedigree has been successful on dirt. Arch has dirt runners, Lemon Drop Kid has dirt runners, and the female family here has produced top sire Distorted Humor. In fact, Danzig’s Humor is half to Distorted Humor. This colt is bred in the same cross as stakes winner Strait of Zanzibar.
Hip 382 – Filly by Tiznow out of Emirates Lady, by Unbridled’s Song – this filly is likely to be a distance lover on the dirt. Her pedigree shows that as well. Her second dam is a full sister to Grade 3 winner Honor Grades. She is also half to Summer Squall, Weekend in Seattle, and A.P. Indy. The filly is pre on the same cross as stakes winner, Tourist.
Hip 386 – Colt by Lemon Drop Kid out of Entwine, by Empire Maker – this colt is likely to be very successful in turf races, over a distance of ground. The dam, Entwine, is half to current turf mare Filimbi, who has come to the US to attempt to extend her winning on American soil.
Hip 545 – Filly by Hard Spun out of Imiloa, by Kingmambo – This filly is half two three others, two of which are winners in England. The dam, Imiloa, is a half sibling to highly anticipated young sire, Eskenderyea and group one winner Balmont. This filly is bred on the same cross as the group one winner sire, Duke of Marmalade (IRE). This filly could likely handle either surface, and should love some distance.
Hip 861 – Filly by Tiznow out of Parris Hill, by A.P. Indy – This filly has a strong female family to build on. Parris Hill is a half sibling to Broodmare of the Year Take Charge Lady. Whether this filly is used for racing or breeding purposes, she is likely to attract a pretty petty. She is likely to like middle distances on the dirt. This filly is bred on the same cross as Morning Line, Norumbega, and Charge Now (1/2 to Super Saver)
Hip 966 – Filly by Super Saver out of Rosy Humor, by Distorted Humor – this filly has a strong family to live up to. This filly is half to promising two-year-old colt Stanford. The third dam in the distaff line produced Johannesburg, who sired Scat Daddy. The forth dam produced sire Tale of the Cat, who sired Stopchargingmaria, who is a multiple graded stakes winner, including the Grade One Alabama Stakes. This filly is bred on the same cross as Competitive Edge, Hashtag Bourbon, and impressive maiden winner High Dollar Woman.
