Redding Colliery colt fastest in breeze show for Texas sale


A colt from the second crop of sire Redding Colliery clocked the fastest furlong of the rescheduled Texas Thoroughbred Association 2-year-olds in training sale on Monday, covering the distance in 10 1/5 seconds at Lone Star Park.

The juveniles were originally slated to breeze on Sunday, but severe weather forced the auction company to delay the show by a day.

The Redding Colliery colt is out of the winning Johannesburg mare Bond’s Babe, whose first foal to race is unplaced in two starts. His third dam is the multiple Grade 3 winner Soviet Sojourn, putting him in the family of Grade 1 winner and elite sire Indian Charlie, as well as stakes winners Miner’s Escape and Lady Banks, and Grade 1-placed Toro Bonito.

The colt was bred in Louisiana by Jay Adcock and Hume Wornall, and sold for $3,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall yearling sale. He is consigned at the Texas sale by Richardson Bloodstock, agent.

Sunday’s severe weather also affected the start time for the Texas 2-year-old sale, which will now take place Tuesday at 2 p.m. Central, after initially being scheduled to start earlier in the day.
