A gray or roan yearling filly bred by Barak Farm and Dinos Thoroughbreds LLC topped the Maryland-bred offerings at the Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale held Jan. 9-12 in Lexington, Ky.
 From the first crop of Grade 1-winning sprinter Volatile, the filly was consigned by Stuart Morris, agent for Barak Farm, and purchased by Kinsman Farm for $70,000. She is out of the Hard Spun mare Resilient One, a six-time winner with earnings of $176,120 who is the dam of two other foals: an unnamed 4-year-old colt by Klimt and an unplaced 3-year-old Mor Spirit colt named Mor Than Tough. The filly’s second dam is stakes-winning, multiple graded stakes-placed Amandatude (Aptitude); her third dam is five-time stakes winner Heavenliness (Lord Avie). 
Of the 15 Maryland-breds who went through the ring, 13 sold, with 12 selling in the ring and one selling post-sale. They grossed $343,200, for an average price of $26,400 and median of $30,000. 
The highest-priced Maryland-bred broodmare was 10-year-old Table Jumper (Jump Start), sold for $40,000 to Chance Farm from the Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm at Xalapa consignment. A stakes-placed half-sister to 2016 champion Maryland-bred 2-year-old male Greatbullsoffire (Bullsbay) and stakes-placed Doubleoseven (Hard Spun), Table Jumper had a career record of 1-0-2 from seven starts, with earnings of $55,820 and third-place finishes in the 2015 Maryland Million Lassie and Smart Halo Stakes. Sold in foal to Maclean’s Music, Table Jumper is the dam of three named foals, all winners, including C’Mon Man (by Tourist), who was stakes-placed as a juvenile in 2021.
