Fasig-Tipton held their second annual Midlantic June Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale in Timonium on Tuesday, June 25. 

A bay ridgling by Mor Spirit named No Mor Stones was the highest-priced Maryland-bred of the sale, going for $55,000 to Dennis O’Neill. Consigned by Tom McCrocklin, agent, he previously sold for $22,000 to Grassroots Training and Sales from the Marshall Silverman consignment at last October’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling Sale. He made his career debut at Churchill Downs in a maiden special weight on June 19, and finished ninth.

No Mor Stones was bred by Charles and Cynthia McGinnes and is out of the winning Lemon Drop Kid mare Deborah’s Moment, whom the McGinneses purchased for $170,000 at the 2014 Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale in foal to City Zip. From eight foals of racing age, Deborah’s Moment has produced five winners, including stakes-placed Mending Fences (Colonel John) and six-figure earner Midnight Regret (Midnight Storm)

All five Maryland-breds offered at the sale sold, totaling $145,000, good for an average of $29,000 and a median of $30,000.
