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.
- On PA Derby day, “At long last” the key phraseHot Rod Charlie got — at long last — his Grade 1 triumph in Saturday’s Pennsylvania Derby. He wasn’t the day’s only “at long last” winner by any means.
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.
