Fasig-Tipton Midlantic conducted its annual Two-Year-Olds in Training sale in Timonium May 20 and 21. A bay colt by Good Magic led the Maryland-bred contingent, selling for $120,000 to HRH Prince Saud Bin Salman. 

The colt, who breezed an eighth of a mile in 10.3 at the under tack show, was consigned by Grassroots Training and Sales LLC, agent, and was bred by Bowman & Higgins Stable. He previously sold to Grassroots for $47,000 at last fall’s Midlantic Yearling Sale from the Becky Davis consignment. Bowmans & Higgins bought his dam, the Bernardini mare Adorina, for $67,000, with the Good Magic colt in utero, at the 2021 Keeneland November sale. The mare is a half-sibling to nine winners, including stakes winners Icabad Crane, third in the 2008 Preakness, and Our Golden Dream.

Two other Maryland-breds cracked the $90,000 mark. A chestnut colt by Game Winner, bred by Bowman & Higgins Stable and consigned by Wes Carter, agent for Carter Brothers, sold for $95,000 to R. Larry Johnson. He breezed an eighth of a mile in 10.3 at the under tack show. His dam, the Midnight Lute mare Alottalute, has three winners from three to race, led by six-time stakes winner and two-time Maryland-bred champion Street Lute and multiple stakes winner Alottahope. Carter Brothers purchased the son of Game Winner out of the Midlantic October yearling sale for $30,000.

A chestnut Uncle Lino colt, bred by Karmac Stable LLC and consigned by Fast Horses Agent, sold for $95,000 to July Johnson. He breezed an eighth of a mile in 10.1 at the under tack show. Out of the winning Trappe Shot mare Rosie Belle, who is a half-sister to the dam of multiple stakes winner Nice Ace, the colt was pinhooked by Fast Horses, which purchased him for $7,500 at last fall’s Midlantic Yearling sale.

A total of 21 Maryland-breds sold at this year’s sale, with 19 selling in the ring and two more selling post-sale. They grossed a total of $1,004,000, good for an average of $47,810 and a median of $40,000.
