Silver Screamer, a Grade 3-winning mare, has been added to Monday's Fasig-Tipton Kentucky summer horses of racing age sale.

A pair of late additions have joined the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky summer selected horses of racing age sale, both with graded stakes résumés, and a Grade 1 winner has been declared from the catalog.

Silver Screamer is a Grade 3-winning Cozzene mare, earning her signature victory in the 2012 Eatontown Handicap. The 5-year-old is out of the Gone West mare West Sider, who is the dam of eight winners from ten foals to race, including stakes winner Sixtyone Margaux. Consigned by Hunter Valley Farm, agent, Silver Screamer’s notable extended family members include Grade 1 winners Gemologist, Summer Colony, and One of a Klein and Japanese champion filly Still in Love.

In total, Silver Screamer has won seven of 18 career starts for earnings of $314,245. She enters off an unplaced finish in the Fairy Garden Stakes at Belmont Park on July 4.

Also added to the catalog was Dr. Diamond’s Prize a stakes-winning, Grade 2-placed Pure Prize mare, who has excelled running sprints over synthetic surfaces. The 5-year-old, consigned by owner KatieRich Farm, is out of the Grade 2-placed winning Clever Trick mare Miss Mary Apples, whose four winners from seven foals to race include multiple stakes winner Miss Red Delicious. Her page is highlighted by Triple Crown winner Affirmed, as well as Grade/Group 1 winners Senor Pete, Top Size, and Confidential Lady.

On the racetrack Dr. Diamond’s Prize is a winner of five of 22 lifetime starts for earnings of $240,903. She won the Gowell Stakes at Turfway in 2010 and comes to the sale off an out-of-the-money finish in the Grade 3 Chicago Handicap on June 29.

In other news related to the horses of racing age sale, Grade 1 winner Teaks North was withdrawn late in the week. He had been one of the projected centerpiece offerings of the auction.

After he was entered in the sale, the 6-year-old Northern Afleet gelding finished a game second in the United Nations Handicap on July 6 at Monmouth Park, which would have been his second victory in the Grade 1 race in three years, and his third Grade 1 win overall.

The horses of racing age sale will begin immediately following the conclusion of the Fasig-Tipton July selected yearling sale, which is scheduled to begin July 15 at 10 a.m. Eastern at Fasig-Tipton’s Newtown Paddocks base in Lexington, Ky.
