Hip 449 – Weanling Filly – Kitten’s Joy’s are still on fire and this filly has a lot of potential to be a turf star. By the #1 turf sire, out of a Lemon Drop Kid mare, this filly should be filled with loads of stamina. Foreign buyers may take an interest in this filly.
Hip 522 – Weanling Colt – From the first crop of Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags, this colt should bring some attentions. Out of a Broad Brush mare, the colt should be well balanced with speed and stamina.
Hip 536 – Weanling Colt – Shackleford has had some nice looking foals already, and this colt is apart of his first crop. Out of the Flying Paster mare, Catnip, the colt is a half brother to grade three winner Micromanage. Catnip herself is a half sister to champion two-year-old in Europe, Hold That Tiger.
Hip 713 – Marcellina d’Oro – this Medaglia d’Oro mare wasn’t a very successful racehorse. She instead we retired and her first foal will be by Curlin. Sent here in foal off of a March 2 cover, the mare should make a nice producer. Medaglia d’Oro is a good sire of mares.
Hip 886 – Weanling Filly – This Blame filly should turn some heads for sure. Out of the Rahy mare, Voyage, the filly had a proven distaff line. Her dam is a half sister to turf star Point of Entry and multiple graded stakes winning mare, Pine Island. This filly could easily take to either surface willingly.
Hip 992 – Weanling Colt – This colt is from the first crop of To Honor and Serve. This colt is out of the Dixieland Band mare, Dixie Sue. The colt had stamina and speed blended nicely on top and bottom. He may even attract some foreign interest.
