A bay colt from the first crop of Bodemeister, bred and sold by Willow Oaks Stable LLC and consigned by Bluegrass Thoroughbred Services Inc. (John Stuart) agent, was knocked down for $425,000 by John C. Oxley at Fasig-Tipton’s Saratoga Selected Yearlings sale held Aug. 10 and 11 at the Humphrey S. Finney sales pavilion in Saratoga.

The youngster, out of multiple stakes winner Pleasant Chimes (by Pleasant Tap), was the only Maryland-bred of two offered to sell. A half-brother to graded stakes-placed juvenile Street Chimes, the April foal is from the family of millionaire Freefourinternet (a half-brother to Pleasant Chimes) and graded stakes winner and sire Chimes Band.
