Maryland highlights at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-old sale - Maryland Horse Breeders Association

A colt by classic sire Bodemeister out of Maryland-bred champion Plum (by Pure Prize) bred by Dark Hollow Farm topped the Maryland-bred offerings at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-year-old sale held May 21-22 at the Timonium Sales Pavilion in Timonium.

Hip 427, sold by bloodstock agent Cary Frommer, was purchased by Steven W. Young, Agent, for $300,000. The third foal out of his dam, who was named champion 2-year-old filly of 2011, the bay foaled in late March was sold initially as a yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall sale for $125,000 to Frommer. He failed to make his reserve at $295,000 at the OBS March sale, where he worked a furlong in 10 flat. He worked in :10.40 for the Maryland sale.

A total of 19 Maryland-breds went through the ring, for a gross of $1,014,000 and average of $53,358. The second-highest price was a colt by Maryland freshman sire Super Ninety Nine. Bred by Country Life Farm and Mrs. J.W.Y Martin Jr., Hip 555 sold to Charles J. Zacney for $100,000. He is the third foal, and the first since 2009, for the Deputed Testamony mare Summer Vacation, also bred by Martin. Sent through the auction ring as a just-turned yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic January Mixed sale, he brought $1,000, and went back through the Timonium sales ring last October, selling for $17,000. The dark bay was one of four by his sire to sell in the May sale, for an average $51,250.

The most expensive of 15 juveniles by Maryland sires was a Pennsylvania-bred Friesan Fire colt out of Avani Force, by Forestry, for $210,000. Gary Young, agent for Mike Dubb, made the purchase. The colt is from the family of Grade 1 winners Startac and Harmonious.

Other offspring of Maryland sires included:

• A Street Magician colt out of What Am I Gonna Do, purchased by KOID for $95,000. He is a half-brother to stakes winner Great Soul.

• Three Tritap fillies sold for $50,000 or more. Bringing $62,000 was a half-sister to four-time stakes winner My Magician purchased by Angelinos Racing LLC

• The only offered by first-year sire Bandbox, a half-brother to stakes winner Shamrock Rose, was bought by Michael Miller for $55,000.
