Hip 419 – Yearling Colt – This colt is by the hot young sire Temple City who is doing well to make sure the Dynaformer sire line is carried on. Temple City was in the top five Freshman Stallions of 2014 with his first crop, which are now three-year-olds of 2015. This colt is out of the Perfect Soul mare, Perfect Rah, who is out of a Rahy mare. The distaff line is not the most fashionable, but this turf pedigree on this colt is superb and should bring an honest price.

Hip 422 – Yearling Colt – This Quality Road colt is sure to bring a nice price. He is out of the Cox’s Ridge mare, Pert lady, who has already produced multiple graded stakes winner, Zavata, who won the G2 Amsterdam and Saratoga Special Stakes. The colt has a proven distaff line to create producers. His second dam is the granddam of I Spent It. The third dam is the granddam of top stallion Dixie Union. The colt should be a quality speed horse, with the Quality Road, Cox’s Ridge, and Sham influences.

Hip 457 – Roust Em’ Bertie – This maiden mare is offered in the sale in foal to Shackleford on a March 6 cover. This young mare, who just turned five, is a half sibling to stakes winner and Grade One placed, Rousing Sermon. Roust Em’ Bertie is by the speedy Bertrando, but with the right breeding, this mare could easily throw some quality runners that can get any distance on any surface.

Hip 477 – Singing Sister – This mare is didn’t race too long, but did win her only race at age three before being retired to become a broodmare. Her produce record is small, with one winner in the only foal to race. She has a two-year-old and a yearling, both by Golden Missile. She is offered in the sale in foal on a May 4th cover to Ghostzapper. Ghostzapper is the sire of quality horses, such as Moreno and Judy the Beauty, who also happened to be half sibling to Singing Sister. Singing Sister should bring a decent price.

Hip 488 – Yearling Colt – This grey or roan colt is by the hot young sire Blame, famous for the only horse to ever defeat Zenyatta. The colt is out of the Gone West mare, So Posh. So Posh is a young mare, with none of her foals to race yet, including her two-year-old of 2015. The mare, however, is a half to multiple Grade One winner Silver Wagon and stakes winner Rehoboth. The young colt should be well received with a quality pedigree that should sell itself.

Hip 489 – So Spirited – this fifteen-year-old mare has not had a lot of luck as a broodmare. So Spirited has only produced three winners from five to race, but has been a broodmare since 2003. She has aborted a foal twice and has had one weanling die. If her luck runs well, she will deliver a foal by Violence this year. Pedigree wise, So Spirited is backed by strong pedigree. Sired by Horse of the Year and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner, Favorite Trick, So Spirited is out of the Silver Deputy mare, Silvery Swan. This makes her a half sibling to Haskell winner, Roman Ruler, Cigar Mile winner, El Corredor, and Hopeful winner, Maimonides.

Hip 508 – Yearling Filly – This yearling filly is by multiple champion and top sire, Giant’s Causeway. Out of the Carson City mare, Sweet Trip, this makes the filly half to multiple graded stakes winner and track record setter for 10F, Rail Trip. The second dam, Stellar Affair, is the granddam of Palace Rumor, who produced Belmont Stakes and Met Mile winner, Palace Malice. This filly should have no problem bringing a pretty penny.

Hip 537 – Up – Up is by the European Champion and Champion sire, Galileo. Up was a Group Two winner in Ireland, earning black-type. She is out of the Spectrum mare, Halland Park Lass, which makes her a half sibling to Group One winner and stallion, Dutch Art. Up is a young mare, having only one foal to date, which she produced in 2014. Back in foal for 2015, Up is offered, in foal to War Front, on a March 30th cover. Up could easily become the sales topper if the big guns show up.

Hip 538 – Yearling Filly – This filly is the 2014 foal that Up (Hip 537) produced. Sired by War Front, the filly has the pedigree of the popular War Front/Galileo cross that both American and European interests are highly interested in. She could easily be the reason for a bidding war in the pavilion.

Hip 664 – Yearling Colt – This colt is from the second crop of Trappe Shot. The colt is from a young distaff line. Out of the Giant’s Causeway mare, Exit Three, who only has two foal of racing age with one to race, the pedigree further back will have to be an indicator for the colt’s future talent. His third dam is the Mr. Prospector mare, Yarn. Yarn is known for producing the Storm Cat stallion, Tale of the Cat. Yarn is also the granddam of Champion Two-Year-Old in Europe, Johannasburg. The colt won’t command a huge price, but is likely to have a light price tag that could attract pinhookers.

Hip 677 – Yearling Colt – This Pioneerof the Nile colt, already named Vitamin F, has an attractive pedigree. He is out of the Harlan’s Holiday mare, Flexfuel. Flexfuel is a young mare, with only two foals of racing age, including a juvenile of 2015. The second dam, Ms. Cornstalk, has produced two champion horses. Biofuel was Canadian Horse of the Year and Champion Two- and Three-Year-Old filly in Canada. Tu Endie Wei was also the Canadian Champion Two-Year-Old filly in Canada. The colt’s third dam produced Arkansas Derby winner, Dansil, now standing at stud. This colt should take to either surface and be a quality racehorse.

Hip 756 – Yearling Colt – This colt is from the first crop by Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags. Out of the Point Given mare, Litigating, who is a full sister to multiple graded stakes winner and multiple track record setter, Go Between. This colt may take a while longer than some would like to mature, but he is likely to be able to run all day on any surface. Likely to bring an honest price, the colt will be one to watch in the coming years.
