    A Bernardini filly who is a half sister to champion Proud Spell lit up the Keeneland sales ring Sept. 10 when she was purchased by Baumann Stables for $1.3 million as the top-priced offering during the first half of the second session of the September sale.
    Bred by Brereton C. Jones and consigned as Hip 291 by his Airdrie Stud, the filly was produced from the winning Langfuhr mare Pacific Spell. Proud Spell, trained by Larry Jones for owner Jones, won the Kentucky Oaks and Alabama Stakes, both grade I, during her championship campaign.
  • Tapit Colt Tops Seven Figures at Keeneland (Hip 325)
    By Blood-Horse Staff Updated: Tuesday, September 10, 2013 3:37 PM
    A Tapit colt became the second seven-figure transaction at the second session of the Keeneland September yearling sale when he was purchased for $1 million by Coolmore Stud.
    Consigned by VanMeter Sales as Hip 325, the colt bred in Kentucky by JKG Thoroughbreds was produced from the graded stakes-place mare Pretty 'n Smart.
    The Tapit colt is a half brother to grade III stakes winners Heart Ashley and Ashley's Kitty.
  • One thing that surprised me when I was able to watch a little this morning was the number of what I had perceived to be high quality colts and fillies being hammered down for less than 100, 000.00, marked as sold and led out sort of abruptly. Add to that a colt that I was watching for yesterday, the #008 by Distorted Humor out of Film Maker, sold for $375,000.00 but on the listings today it indicated it was RNA. So, my question is are some of these who are not going up as high being pulled out because the bidding isn't going as high as fast or are they really going for so little? It is nice to be able to have a chance to see some of these youngsters and anticipate how they will be on the race track, but there is still a lot of it that is just a mystery to me - lol! Also, I find it interesting that these are the colts and fillies that are the same age as Cozmic One - his generation - his future rivals!

  • Million-Dollar Filly Ends Keeneland Day Two
    Hip 438 with Video
    By Blood-Horse Staff Updated: Tuesday, September 10, 2013 7:23 PM
    The second session of the Keeneland September yearling sale Sept. 10 in Lexington ended with a bang as Andrew Rosen landed the day's fourth yearling to reach $1 million.
    Rosen went to $1 million to purchase the final yearling offered on the day, a Malibu Moon filly (Hip 438) who is a half sister to grade I winner Power Broker. The filly was consigned by Mill Ridge Sales, agent.
    Through two sessions, eight yearlings have sold for $1 million or more
  • I'm curious about "scoping". According to Bloodhorse, hip 325 got scoped 15 times. I work in dentistry, we send xrays to other docs when patients want a second opinion. In this digital age, could scopes be recorded digitally? Does a scope really change hour to hour? What am I missing? It just seems like an undue burden placed on a very young horse. Apologies if this question has been asked and answered...scoping sounds a little uncomfortable too! :)
  • anyone know anything about mike ryan? he signed the ticket on #221 that I named head case(see pedigree) wondering if hes an agent that buys for american interests or if it means this filly will be headed over sees? really like to try and follow her..any info is appreciated
