Top end strong at Maryland sale


Fasig-Tipton Midlantic's two-day Eastern fall yearling sale got under way Monday in Timonium, Md.,with strong selling at the top of the regional market.

A $140,000 colt by Allen's Prospect, the popular Maryland sire who died Sept. 3, was the session-leader at 5 p.m. Jay Em Ess Stable bought the colt, a son of the Meadowlake mare Meadow Rose, from the Bluewater Sales agency. That colt was one of three selling for six-figure prices by that point.
