$77,000 North Light colt tops Pegasus Training Center sale


A $77,000 North Light colt named Late Night Sky was the inaugural sale-topper Tuesday night at the first Pegasus Training Center 2-year-old auction in Redmond, Wash. The sale sold 17 horses for a combined $633,000.

Sandee and Al Kirkwood purchased the sale-topper, a bay son out of Bernhardt. Kentucky-bred Late Night Sky is the first foal for his dam, a winner by Out of Place and a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Top Commander and stakes placed State Power.

Also selling near that level was the Stormy Atlantic-Creaseinherjeans colt Rockin Republic, who went to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer for $75,000.

The highest-priced filly was a $50,000 El Corredor-Causeway RN daughter named TenderasIwannabe. Southdown Bloodstock bought her.

The one-day sale’s average price was $37,235 and median was $30,000. There were two juveniles who did not reach their reserves, an Aragorn-Young Royalty filly and an English Channel-Elegant Prospect filly. Both were bought back on final bids of $23,000.
