FASIG-TIPTON: PAIR OF COLTS ABOVE $200K THUS FAR
A Pennsylvania-bred Gun Runner colt was the star of the early bidding on day two at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic fall yearling sale, while a Maryland-bred son of Street Sense wasn’t far beyond.
Both horses easily surpassed the day one topper, a Cupid colt who brought a winning bid of $160,000.

The Gun Runner colt was consigned by Becky Davis as agent, with Lambe Bloodstock going to $270,000 to get him. He’s out of the Stormy Atlantic mare Stormy Tak and is a half to three winners. Stormy Tak is a half to two stakes winners and one stakes producer and is out of the Mutakddim mare Lady Tak, a multiple Grade 1-winning millionaire.
The Maryland-bred Street Sense colt brought a top bid of $240,000 from West Bloodstock as agent for Repole Stable and St. Elias Stable. Consigned by Chanceland Farm, he is out of the ultra-productive Polish Numbers mare Tanca.
The colt is a half-brother to seven winners, including stakes winners Cordmaker, Las Setas, and Corvus. On Saturday, Cordmaker ran third in the Grade 3 Pimlico Special for the second consecutive year.
The sale concludes this afternoon.
