Canadian businessman Nat Rea’s Regis Farms set the top price early in the Fasig-Tipton Florida selected 2-year-olds in training sale on Monday, purchasing a Smart Strike filly for $700,000.

The dark bay or brown filly is the third foal out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Music Room, who is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Music Note and to Musical Chimes, a Group 1 winner in France and a Grade 1 winner in the U.S.

Her notable family members include champion It’s in the Air, Grade/Group 1 winner Storming Home, and Grade/Group 2 winners Bitooh and Porte Monheur.

The filly completed a one furlong breeze in :10.40 seconds during the pre-sale under-tack show at the Palm Meadows Training Center in Boynton Beach, Fla.

Bred in Kentucky by SF Bloodstock, she was consigned by Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds, agent, who purchased the filly for $250,000 at the 2012 Keeneland September yearling sale. Her sale price makes her the most expensive foal out of her dam, Music Room.
