Yes It's True colt sells for $180K


The Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's August yearling sale got off to a quick start Monday, with a spate of yearlings selling above $100,000.

As of 4:30 p.m., the early session leader was a $180,000 Yes It's True colt that Robert J. Harris, agent, bought from the Summerfield agency.

The colt is out of the Valid Appeal winner Joyatlast, making him a half-brother to stakes winner and $290,000 earner Rocky Robyn and to stakes-placed $106,000 earner Come on Joy.

The Big C Farm agency had sold three of the 10 six-figure lots by 4:30. The sale continues through Thursday at the OBS pavilion in Ocala, Fla.
