Freud has five 2-year-olds at Fasig-Tipton select sale

Email

New York sire Freud, who tied with Successful Appeal as the leading sire at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's juvenile sale on Feb. 8, is represented by five offerings in the Fasig-Tipton selected 2-year-olds in training sale at Calder March 1.

Both sires averaged $185,000 for two offspring at OBS.

Successful Appeal was the leading first-crop sire in North America for 2004 in terms of earnings, while Freud, a full brother to Giant's Causeway who stands at Lakland North in Hudson, will have his first runners hit the track in 2005.

At the corresponding Fasig-Tipton Calder sale in 2004, New York-breds averaged $122,000 for eight sold, while the sale average came in at $292,859.

The Freud quintet are all New York-breds, and one of them, a colt out of the Dayjur mare Kheyrah, turned in an excellent quarter-mile move in 22 seconds during the under-tack show last Sunday. The time equaled the third-fastest of 33 such clockings as the horses ran against a strong headwind.

The colt is a half-brother to the English stakes-placed horse Sentiero Rosso, from the family of Grade 1 winners Saratoga Six, Dunbeath, and Lakeway.

There should also be plenty of interest in the New York-bred colt by Lakland sire Good and Tough. A gray colt, he is a half-brother to New York-bred filly Capeside Lady, who won the Grade 2 Monmouth Breeders' Cup Oaks in 2004 and has earnings of $416,160.

New York sire Phone Trick, who was represented by the second-highest price at the OBS sale with a colt at $550,000, has a filly at Fasig-Tipton with strong Empire State connections.

She is out of the Polish Numbers mare Gallant Number, who is a full sister to multiple graded-stakes winner Biogio's Rose, a New York-bred earner of $797,959.

Biogio's Rose won the Next Move and Rare Treat handicaps and placed in four other graded events during her career.

A colt by Dynaformer has one of the strongest New York-bred pedigrees in the sale. He is out of Impulse Shopper, a daughter of deceased New York sire Dr. Blum who is a half-sister to Shopping for Love, a multiple stakes winner who earned $613,669 and placed in three graded events.

The family also includes accomplished New York-breds Columbia Gold, Adcat, and Gratiaen.

Statebreds sweep three open stakes

New York-breds have been on a tear in open stakes races at Aqueduct recently, sweeping the Whirlaway, Capossela, and Dearly Precious stakes in succession.

The Whirlaway, on Feb. 12, was won by Sort It Out, who captured his third straight race in the $75,000 event at 1 1/16 miles. He won the Whirlaway in the colors of Preferred Pals Stable, who subsequently sold a majority interest in Sort It Out to the Stonerside Stable of Robert McNair.

Bred by Becky Thomas and Lewis Lakin of Lakland North, Sort It Out is by Out of Place from the family of champions Forty Niner and Swale.

The Whirlaway favorite, New York-bred Galloping Grocer, finished fourth in his seasonal debut while sustaining a cut on his left hind leg. With Naughty New Yorker getting the place, New York-breds finished one-two-four in the Whirlaway.

Distinctive Trick captured the $75,000 Fred "Cappy" Capossela Stakes at six furlongs on Feb. 19.

A son of Distinctive Pro, he is out of Doyourthing, a daughter of Known Fact who is a half-sister to stakes winners Imp's Gift and Majesty's Imp from a family that includes multiple graded-stakes winner Nasty Storm.

Distinctive Trick was bred by Brendan Mullery and Sugar Maple Farm.

Acey Deucey won the $75,000 Dearly Precious Stakes at six furlongs on Feb. 21.

A daughter of Abaginone bred by Glen Grey Farm, Acey Deucey is a granddaughter of champion older mare Cascapedia, who won the Grade 1 Vanity Handicap during her career.
