Hip 2918 – Tiago’s Donna – This mare is an unraced mare by Tiago, whose first crop is sophomores of 2014. This mare is a maiden mare, offered here as property of Adena Springs. She is coming into the sale, believed to be pregnant on a April 12th cover by Einstein (BRZ) and with her sale, the buyer also received a no-guarantee 2015 season to new sire Fort Larned.
Hip 2968 – Atlantic Zip – This Stormy Atlantic mare is offered here as property of Adena Springs. This mare was also unraced, three-year-old maiden mare. Atlantic Zip hails from the distaff line that produced Baby Zip, producer of prominent sires City Zip and Ghostzapper. Atlantic Zip is offered, in foal on a March 17th cover, to Adena Springs stallion Einstein (BRZ). The buyer will also attain a no-guarantee 2015 season to Awesome Again.
Hip 3066 – Fuhrleen – This Langfuhr mare has quite a female line. Her dam Kathie’s Colleen (Woodman) produced Wando, Champion Three-Year-Old and Horse of the Year in Canada, after winning the Canadian Triple Crown. 2nd dam, Royal Colleen (Viceregal) produced prominent sire Beau Genius. The mare is offered here, on a February 20th cover, to Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Court Vision.
Hip 3103 – Weanling Filly – This filly is from the third crop of young sire, Lookin at Lucky. She is out a producing mare how has six winners from eight foals to race. This filly hails from the female family of Dance Sequence, Souvenir Copy, and Doneraile Court. Being out of an A.P. Indy mare, by a Smart Strike son, this filly should get some attention.
Hip 3155 – Kentucky’s Song – This unraced mare by Kentucky Derby winner Giacomo is a half sister to stakes winner Rydilluc. The mare has a similar lineage to sires El Corredor, Roman Ruler, and Maimonades. Kentucky Song is a maiden mare, offered in foal to Adena Springs sire Einstein (BRZ). The buyer will receive a no-guarantee 2015 season to new sire, Point of Entry.
Hip 3167 – Weanling Filly – Bellamy Road babies haven’t done all that well, despite the brilliance Bellamy Road displayed on the racetrack. This filly is out Moon Buzz (Malibu Moon). Being the first filly out of the mare, the pedigree speaks for itself. With graded stakes winners scattered through the entire first three generations, the filly has a good chance to be successful. I also like the miler (Bellamy Road) over the Malibu Moon mare, which carries the A.P. Indy sire line.
Hip 3239 – Weanling Filly – from the first crop of Caleb’s Posse, this apart of the distaff line that produced Unusual Heat. This filly is out of his half sister. The second dam also has shown to be a producer of producers. Rossard (DEN) is the granddam of Three’s a Crowd, Two Dot Slew, and Dash of Humor. The filly could be easily used for racing of breeding stock, as her distaff line says she should be successful at either, or both.
