$60K colt tops Maryland sale


A colt by Harlan's Holiday brought $60,000 to top the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds and horses of racing age sale held Tuesday at Timonium Fairgrounds in Maryland.

The colt, out of the Affirmed mare River Crossing, was purchased by Kaleem S. Shah and consigned by Old South Farm, according to sales results.

The colt’s second dam, Change Water, is the stakes-winning dam of Fall Aspen, a broodmare of the year.

Overall at the sale, 61 horses sold for $879,800, an average price of $14,423, up 38.6 percent compared with last year's average of $10,407. The median price was up 65.8 percent to $9,700, compared with last year's median of $5,850.

Twelve horses did not meet the reserve set by the consignor, compared with 28 horses who did not meet reserves last year.
