An Audible filly bred by The Elkstone Group LLC was the only one of the three Maryland-breds catalogued to sell at Fasig-Tipton Kentucky’s The July Sale on Tuesday, July 12, and she exceeded six figures.
Talla Racing and Rockingham Ranch, Sweetwater Trading, agent, bid $125,000 for the dark bay filly from her sire’s first crop consigned by Brookdale Sales agent. Born January 27, she is the second foal out of the stakes-winning Miss Freeze, by Frost Giant. Her winning second dam Reata’s Vixen is a half-sister to nine-time stakes winner Royal Currier, an earner of $869,569.
