Unbridled filly leads F-T session


LEXINGTON, Ky. - As of 4:45 p.m. eastern on Tuesday, a $200,000 Unbridled filly out of stakes winner Miss Nance was the session leader on the second and final day at Fasig Tipton Kentucky's October yearling sale.

Buzz Chace, agent, purchased the filly, who is the second foal for Miss Nance, a Blushing John mare. Three Chimneys, agent, consigned the filly. Two other lots brought more than $100,000. Hip No. 284, an Awesome Again-Mine Tonight filly sold by Denali Stud, agent for Edition Farm, brought $112,000 on a final bid from Dr. Naveed Chowhan. About a hour later, Heatherway, agent, bought Hip No. 313, a $105,000 Boston Harbor colt out of Native Fire Dance, from Highclere Sales, agent.

On Monday, a $360,000 Unbridled colt topped the opening session, which had across-the-board declines and a buy-back rate of 27 percent. The session sold 154 lots - far fewer than last year's opener, which sold 258. The average price slipped 9 percent, from $12,522 last year to $11,416, and the median fell 8 percent, from $6,500 to $6,000. In the declining market, the buy-back rate jumped from last year's 20 percent.

Niall O'Callaghan, agent, purchased Monday's session-topper, who is the first foal from the stakes-winning Classic Account mare Debit My Account. Viking Stud (Rick Littrell), agent, consigned the chestnut colt.
