Four by state's top freshman sire in sale

Email

Prime Timber, New York's leading freshman sire in 2005, has four New York-breds cataloged in the Ocala Breeders' Sales Co. selected 2-year-olds in training sale on March 21-22.

With his stakes-winning juvenile filly Cinderella's Dream leading the way, his progeny earned $422,519 last year.

Cinderella's Dream, a candidate for state champion in her division, won the Maid of the Mist and placed in the Grade 2 Demoiselle Stakes.

Prime Timber's New York-bred group consists of three colts and a filly.

Hip No. 127, consigned by Moonshadow Farm as agent, is a half-brother to Swinging Ghost, who placed in the Mike Lee Stakes.

His colt out of Just a Bullet (by Jolie's Halo) and consigned by Neil Sims, agent, selling as Hip No. 89, is a half-brother to Magnolia Jackson, who won last Sunday's Broadway Handicap at Aqueduct.

Prime Timber's New York-bred filly, consigned as Hip No. 385 by Woodside Ranch, agent, also has black-type connections.

Out of the Private Terms mare Aaron's Terms, Hip No. 385 is a half-sister to Manor Prospect, who placed in the Best Turn Stakes.

Prime Timber stands at Sez Who Thoroughbreds North, in Stillwater.

Good and Tough, who resides at Lakland North in Hudson, is represented by three New York-breds.

Eddie Woods, agent, is the consignor of a Good and Tough filly as Hip No. 198 out of Private Account's daughter Pierpont Account.

Second dam Whidah, by Codex, is out of Dr. Fager's daughter Bite the Dust, whose family includes graded-stakes winners River Squall and Better Now.

Good and Tough's daughter, named Simply Preferred, is consigned by Sequel Bloodstock, agent, as Hip No. 207.

Out of Precious Choice, by Jade Hunter, she is a half-sister to New York-bred Dynamo Hum, who placed in the Park Avenue division of the New York Stallion Stakes series.

Deceased state sire Phone Trick is represented by six New York-breds in the Ocala sale.

His daughter Talk to the Hoof, consigned as Hip No. 268 by Solitary Oak Farm, agent, is a half-sister to New York-bred stakes fillies The Name Was Gone and Dancing Blues.

The Name Was Gone placed in the Bouwerie and the Statue of Liberty division of the stallion series, while Dancing Blues placed in the open Dearly Precious Stakes.

Talk to the Hoof is out of Secreto's Dance, by Secreto.

Several New York-breds have worked well in the under-tack shows leading up to the auction.

Hip No. 47, a daughter of Officer consigned by Sequel Bloodstock, and Hip No. 155, a son of Belmont Stakes winner Commendable consigned by M&H Training Sales, both worked a furlong in 10.20 seconds on March 10. The latter is a half-brother to stakes winner Twice Infallible.

Hip No. 316, a filly consigned by Moonshadow Farm, worked a quarter-mile in 21.40 seconds on March 11, one of the fastest moves among 55 recorded at the distance.

By former state sire Precise End, she is out of Strong Little Girl, whose dam, Sharp Little Girl, was a stakes winner and a runner-up in the Grade 3 Barbara Fritchie Handicap.

Strategic Mission sires a good one

Questroyal Stud sire Strategic Mission could have a classics contender from his first crop.

His son Showing Up is unbeaten in two starts following an impressive first-level allowance win at Gulfstream Park last weekend.

Showing Up set a track record of 1:34.05 for the mile, winning by more than two lengths.

He is trained by Barclay Tagg, who guided New York-bred Funny Cide to victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes in 2003.

Showing Up, who is being supplemented to the Triple Crown for $6,000, might run next in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct on April 8.

Magnolia Jackson: Grade 3 next?

Magnolia Jackson's victory in last Sunday's Broadway Handicap followed open-class victories in the $69,000 Correction Handicap and a $45,000 allowance.

All three wins came on the inner track at Aqueduct, and they sent her career earnings to $208,744 with a 6-1-0 record in 9 starts.

Bred by Sez Who Thoroughbreds, Magnolia Jackson is owned by Ted Taylor, who purchased her for $51,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May sale of 2-year-olds in 2004.

She is by Cape Canaveral out of Just a Bullet, by Jolie's Halo.

Magnolia Jackson might next start in the Grade 3 Distaff Handicap on March 25 on the inner dirt.

Taylor bought her younger half-sister, by Rizzi, at Fasig-Tipton's Midlantic May 2-year-old sale in 2005 for $38,000.
