Algorithms, the undefeated son of Bernardini, who defeated champion Hansen by 5 lengths in the Holy Bull Stakes, was represented by his first crop of 2-year-olds at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Sale March 2nd.
Hip 120, a colt by Algorithms out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Zawzooth, was consigned by SBM Training and Sales and was purchased by Live Oak Plantation for $180,000, well above his 2016 stud fee of $5,000.
Algorithms is an impeccably bred son of top sire Bernardini, sharing a first dam with G1 winners JUSTIN PHILLIP, Champagne Stakes hero and 2016 Kentucky Derby hopeful GREENPOINTCRUSADER, as well as Graded Stakes Winners KEYED ENTRY and SUCCESSFUL MISSION.
Trappe Shot, the shining son of top sire Tapit, continued to build his reputation as an emerging young sire at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Sale March 2nd. Already the sire of 20 winners from his first-crop, including recent “TDN Rising Star” My Man Sam, Trappe Shot is proving himself well worth his $10,000 stud fee. Last year, his weanlings sold up to $250,000, yearlings up to $340,000, and 2yo’s up to $230,000. Yesterday, the Claiborne stallion continued to impress leading buyers, including agent Steven W. Young, who purchased Hip 64, a chestnut colt by Trappe Shot out of the Carson City mare Piano Bar, for $200,000.
A two-year-old colt by Claiborne stallion BLAME brought a final bid of $250,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Sale March 2nd. Out of the black-type mare Stroll By (Stroll), the bay colt breezed in 10.1, catching the eye of Live Oak Plantation, who purchased the BLAME juvenile (Hip 93) from the consignment of Sequel Bloodstock.
