End Sweep colt leads sale


LEXINGTON, Ky. - A $280,000 End Sweep colt was the opening session leader late Monday afternoon at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic's annual 2-year-old-sale in Timonium, Md.

Roger Dreyer bought the Maryland-bred colt, who is out of the Phone Trick winner Line's Busy. Walter Burke's Valley View Farm, agent, consigned the session leader.

The colt is a half-brother to placed runner Free Line and is from the family of stakes winners Miss Audimar and Charge My Account. He had worked a quarter-mile in 22 seconds during the under-tack show last week.

Burke achieved a successful pinhook with the colt. He purchased the horse as a yearling at last year's Keeneland September sale for $53,000.

The second-highest price at the sale, as of 5 p.m., was the $180,000 that Campbell Stables bid for a Cherokee Run colt out of the His Majesty mare Jamilleah. Montpelier Thoroughbreds, represented by agent Allen Jenkins of H. T. Stables, offered the colt.

The top filly early in the session was a $135,000 Two Punch filly out of the graded-placed mare Indian Fashion, by General Holme. Eddie Woods, agent, sold the filly, who is a half-sister to group-placed Solaia. Walnut Green Bloodstock, agent, signed the ticket.
