Day 2 at Saratoga Sale was Nothing Short of High Dollar Horses

Day 2 at Saratoga Sale was Nothing Short of High Dollar Horses Day 2 of the Saratoga Sale was just as exciting as the first. High dollar yearlings left and right. I was very impressed with most of the yearlings from Day 2. Here are the ones who I though were some of the most impressive.

Hip 112, the Bernardini colt was one of the must physically impressive yearlings I saw all night. He was a tall, big boned colt, who was alert and aware of his surroundings. He was a bit bossy toward his handler, but also very confident. At the time of the sale to John Ferguson, he was the sales topper at $800,000.

Hip 117, this Street Sense colt had a lovely walk about him. He was very athletically built, but also had some good structure to him. He had good muscled and his shoulder was developed nicely. Sold for a nice hefty price of $550,000, Rob Baker and Bill Mack took the colt home.

Hip 121, a Medaglia d’Oro filly out a Distorted Humor mare, this filly has a golden pedigree. She also displayed a good gait as she walked. He body was good, very athletic, and her legs were very nice. For her pedigree, her sale price of $625,000 may prove to be a steal. Debby Oxley signed for the filly.

Hip 134, by far, this filly was not a sales topper, but when she walked out into the sales ring, my jaw dropped. Being by a young sire in First Dude, this chromed out filly exceeded my expectations. She was very tall and leggy, but athletic. She covered a lot of ground in her walk. With a lovely build, she had very good bone and a sturdy body. Sold for a low price of $87,000, this filly was stolen by Coffee Pot Stables.

Hip 138, this racy filly by Malibu Moon was very confident the entire time she was in the sales ring. She was tall, but not to the point of being narrow and thin. She had good bone, good muscle, and nice, athletic body. Her gate was good and she covered some ground as she walked. She sold for a price of $250,000 to Pike Racing sales agent.

Hip 150, say hello to the sales topper of both days. This filly has an up and coming pedigree, so to speak. By War Front, out of a mare who is half to Will Take Charge, the filly has mass amounts of potential. The filly was a tiny bit narrow, but nothing I could really pick apart. She had a good gait and a good body to her. Nice bone as well. The half sister to graded stakes placed two-year-old Take Charge Brandi, sold for $1.25 million to Willis B Horton, owner of Will Take Charge.
