HIP 1266 was the co-fastest 1/4 breeze on the third day of the breeze show, completing the the task in 20.3 seconds. A colt out of True Kiss, he is half to Grade 2 winner and three-time Grade 1-placed Shancelot. Consigned by S B M Training and Sales, he is a supplemental entry to the OBS Spring Sale, originally catalogued in the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream selected sale that was cancelled earlier this year.
Another big work was an impressive 10 flat move by a colt out of Addison Run for consignor de Meric Sales. HIP 700 has a pedigree to match, his two half siblings to race are graded stakes horses – including Gouverneur Morris, the runner-up in the Claiborne Breeders Futurity (G1) and placed in the Arkansas Derby (G1). He is from the immediate family of Grade 1 winners Midshipman and Frosted.
The medication-free record-setting Eclipse Champion RUNHAPPY has seen his first-crop juveniles sell up to $475,000 at the OBS March Sale. His colt out of Pledge Pin consigned by Pick View LLC was the highest-priced 2-year-old for a freshman sire on Day 1. We are excited to see how this impressive sampling will be received by buyers next week!
RUNHAPPY stands at Claiborne Farm for $25,000 LFSN.
