Nearly a quarter of the yearlings sold at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale were bred in Maryland, and included the second-highest price of the sale.

Dark Hollow Farm bred and consigned a bay colt by Tiz Wonderful, who sold to agent Cary Frommer for $175,000. A second-generation Dark Hollow Farm homebred (out of the Dixie Union mare Memories of Mystic), the May 17 foal is a half-brother to 2012 Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old filly Mystic Love; his second dam is stakes winner Mystic Dance. The colt was the second most expensive offering, behind the $250,000 Quality Road colt sold earlier in the day.

A Maryland-bred filly from Chanceland Farm's consignment also topped six figures, as Champion Equine made the purchase for $102,000. By Maryland's all-time leading sire Not For Love, the April 11 filly was produced by Lucky Dance (by Kafwain), a half-sister to Not For Love's Maryland Million Turf winner Broadway Producer, an earner of $344,505. Robert T. Manfuso and Katharine M. Voss are the filly's breeders.

A total of 71 Maryland-breds were sold, for an average of $23,547, up from last year's average of $22,974 when 65 sold. The median was also up, from $16,000 to $18,000.

Not For Love was the second-leading sire of the sale, behind Quality Road, as eight yearlings brought $391,000 (average $48,875). His most expensive was a colt for $120,000, purchased by Ellen M. Charles from the consignment of Bill Reightler, agent for O’Sullivan Farms LLC. The colt, out of stakes-winning Sweet Annuity (by Oh Say), a half-sister to millionaire Russell Road, was bred in West Virginia by O’Sullivan Farms LLC
