Repent colt fastest at Fasig-Tipton


A full brother to Grade 2 winner Crown of Thorns had the fastest eighth-mile work Thursday at the second under-tack preview for Fasig-Tipton Midlantic's May preferred 2-year-old auction in Timonium, Md., going in 9.80 seconds.

The Repent colt, cataloged as Hip No. 455, is out of the Thunder Gulch mare Crowning Touch. The consignor is King's Equine (Raul Reyes), agent.

The fastest breeze at a quarter-mile took 21 seconds. That was the time posted by Hip No. 402, a Lion Heart colt out of the Balzac mare Bye the Bye. The colt was consigned by Crupi's New Castle Farm, agent.

Hip No. 422, a Yankee Gentleman filly consigned by Double Knuck Stables (Mike Neatherlin, agent), had the day's best three-eighths-mile work, covering the distance in 34.20. The filly is out of the Cherokee Colony mare Cherokee Rain and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Buenisima.

The sale was to take place at Timonium on Monday and Tuesday, with sessions beginning daily at 10 a.m.
