Three Freud 2-year-olds bring $595,000


Freud's second crop of 2-year-olds is attracting as much interest as his first, which is saying a lot.

Topped by a $400,000 colt at the annual Ocala Breeders' Sales Company selected 2-year-olds in training sale on Feb. 7, three New York-bred juveniles by the state-based sire Freud grossed $595,000, for an average of $198,333.

Freud, an 8-year-old full brother to top international sire Giant's Causeway, stands at Lakland North in Hudson for a fee of $10,000.

Two of his juveniles at the corresponding 2005 sale brought $220,000 and $150,000.

Twelve of the 13 New York-breds consigned to this year's sale were reported as sold, grossing $1,510,000 and averaging $125,833.

At the corresponding sale in 2005, the average for 12 New York-breds was $130,167.

Freud's $400,000 colt was consigned by Wavertree Stables, Ciaran Dunne as agent, and purchased by Ahmed Zayat.

He is out of Tricky Move, a stakes-winning daughter of Tricky Creek who has also produced New York-bred Multiplication, winner of the Mike Lee Stakes.

The price equaled the fourth-highest for a colt at the auction.

Dogwood Stable purchased a Freud colt consigned by Leprechaun Racing, agent, for $140,000.

Out of stakes winner Erv's Duck, by Hagley, he is a half-brother to Erv's Line, who is a multiple stakes winner and champion in Puerto Rico. The colt is from a family that includes Coaching Club American Oaks winner Miss Cavandish.

Deceased New York sire Phone Trick was represented by two six-figure juveniles at OBS.

One is a half-brother to New York-bred Little Miss Zip, winner of the Lady Finger Stakes last year, who was purchased by Zayat for $190,000 from the Leprechaun consignment. He is out of Meadow Dream, a stakes-placed daughter of Meadowlake who is a half-sister to Forty One Carats, winner of the Grade 2 Pegasus Handicap and an earner of $828,843.

The other is a filly by Phone Trick, named I Can Hear You Now and consigned by Crupi's New Castle Farm as agent, who brought $100,000 from Dogwood Stable. She is out of Valid Dorothy, a stakes-placed daughter of Valid Appeal whose family includes Wrangler, winner of the Grade 2 General George Handicap.

Another six-figure New York-bred was a son of Kentucky Derby winner Silver Charm, consigned by Paul Sharp, agent, and purchased for $150,000 by Christopher S. Paasch, agent. He is out of Ziggaraut, a daughter of state sire A. P Jet whose dam, Pamzig, placed in the Grade 3 Vagrancy Handicap and whose family includes multiple graded stakes winner Fappaburst.

This colt attracted plenty of attention when he worked a quarter-mile in 21.20 seconds on Feb. 5 to equal the fastest pre-sale work.

Two New York-bred juvenile fillies consigned by Sequel Bloodstock and by Lakland North sire Good and Tough were each purchased for $50,000.

The first one through the ring, Hip No. 61, is out of Delta Daylight, a daughter of Sovereign Dancer whose grandmother Double Delta won the Beldame.

The second was Hip No. 133, out of the Trempolino mare Nazdarove, whose stakes-winning dam Quaff placed in graded events in Europe and North America.

Brian Koriner and Starview Stable were the respective buyers of the Good and Tough fillies.

A daughter of Artax, who stands at Metropolitan Stud in Pine Plains, she was purchased for $115,000 by Jeff Bonde from the Leprechaun consignment. She is out of the Wild Again mare Free Fantasy, a half-sister to stakes winner and good producer Thunderdome.

Magnolia Jackson does state proud

New York-bred Magnolia Jackson won the $65,000 Correction Handicap for older fillies and mares on Feb. 4 at Aqueduct.

Bred by Sez Who Thoroughbreds, Magnolia Jackson - a daughter of Cape Canaveral-Just a Bullet (Jolie's Halo) - is owned by Ted Taylor, who purchased her for $51,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Eastern May 2-year-olds in training sale in 2004.

Winning for the fifth time in eight career starts, Magnolia Jackson sent her earnings to $166,147 with the victory.

Her stakes-placed dam is a full sister to American Bullet, who placed in the Grade 2 Hutcheson Stakes to More Than Ready in 2000.

Taylor, the former owner of Spendthrift Farm, has increased his involvement in New York breeding in recent years.

He stands the stallion Peruvian at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbred Farm in Saratoga Springs.

Catienus gets sixth stakes winner

New York stallion Catienus got his sixth stakes winner when Warrior Within captured the $50,000 WEBN Stakes at Turfway Park on Feb. 4.

Catienus is standing his third season at Highcliff Farm in Delanson, for a fee of $6,500.

His progeny earnings for two crops to race exceeds $2.7 million, and his first New York-conceived runners are yearlings of 2006.
