Fasig-Tipton Midlantic conducted its annual Two-Year-Olds in Training sale in Timonium on May 22 and 23. A chestnut Maclean’s Music colt, purchased for $450,000 by Legion Bloodstock, agent, was the highest-priced Maryland-bred of the sale.

Consigned by Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds, agent, the colt was bred by Barak Farm and foaled at Country Life Farm on May 20, 2021. He previously sold for $130,000 to Boots Bloodstock at the 2022 Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale, then again for $275,000 to Hartley/De Renzo at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. At the under tack show last week, he breezed an eighth of a mile in 10.1.

He’s the fifth foal out of the Yes It’s True mare Martini, who posted a career record of 4-0-4 from 17 starts, with earnings of $67,805. She’s a daughter of Tropical Punch, a Maryland-bred three-time stakes winner by Two Punch who won 11 of 28 starts, including the 2000 Maryland Million Distaff, and earned $404,377. From four other foals of racing age, Martini has produced three winners, including the sale colt’s full brother, stakes winner and $245,815-earner Dirty, along with six-figure earners Nine Martinis (Super Ninety Nine) and Vodkatini (Divining Rod). 

One other Maryland-bred sold for six figures. A dark bay or brown Cairo Prince filly bred by Flying H Stables LLC and Cairo Prince Partners and consigned by Hidden Brook, Agent III, sold for $150,000 to J.A.S. Foaled at GreenMount Farm in Reisterstown, she is a daughter of the unraced A.P. Indy mare Lookin’ for Indy, who has produced three winners, including six-figure earner Kitchi (Giant Oak). The filly breezed an eighth of a mile in 10.2 and previously sold for $30,000 at the Midlantic Fall Yearling sale last October.  

A total of 21 Maryland-breds sold at this year’s sale, with 20 selling in the ring and one selling post-sale. The group grossed $1,343,000, with an average price of $63,952 and a median of $40,000. Five Maryland-breds offered failed to sell.

Force the Pass, who stood at Anchor & Hope Farm in Port Deposit for one season, led Maryland sires. Three horses from his first crop sold, with a total gross of $100,000. Highest Maryland-sired average was Golden Lad, with two selling for a total of $75,000 (average $37,500).
