The blue-eyed Hip 118 was one of the fastest to breeze on the first day of breezes for the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in training sale. Photo by George Adams.

Kentucky-breds accounted for more than half of the 326 hips that sold at this week’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds in training sale, and with New York-breds comprising another quarter, that left Midlantic-breds with a pretty small footprint.

Overall, a total of 41 horses bred in the region found new homes during the two-day event, with 24 of those bred in Maryland and an even dozen bred in Pennsylvania.

The top seller among the region’s horses was Hip 90, a Pennsylvania-bred filly by Uncle Mo who fetched a top bid of $350,000. Consigned by Top Line Sales as agent, she went to Lothenbach Stables after working an eighth in 10 2/5 seconds.

Second among the region’s sellers was Hip 302, a Maryland-bred colt by Tonalist. A top bid of $300,000 got the job done for buyer West Bloodstock, acting as agent for Repole Stables. The colt was consigned by Tom McCrocklin as agent.

The list of sellers aslo included a $120,000 Pennsylvania-bred and a $70,000 West Virginia-bred.

HIPS BY SIRE

Into Mischief led the sale’s sires in pretty much every way it’s possible to lead: hips sold, total value, average value, and highest-priced to sell. 

Nine hips by Into Mischief sold, a number unsurpassed by any other sire in the sale (though it was equaled by Competitive Edge). He had the sale-topper, a $1.8 million filly. And his nine sellers averaged over $468,000.

Among regional sires, Golden Lad had the largest contingent with six to go through the ring. They fetched an average of just shy of $75,000 with the top seller being Hip 99, a colt out of the placed Corinthian mare Corinnaise. Consigned by Grassroots Training and Sales, he fetched a winning bid of $175,000 from Gary Young, agent for Michael Dubb.
