(Rob Murphy & Gene McLean at Churchill Downs last November for the Breeders’ Cup)
Today, we take another look at the Fasig-Tipton July Selected Yearling Sale, scheduled for Tuesday, July 9 at the sales agency’s premium facility in Lexington. Today, we concentrate on our “Shopping Cart” list from Hips 150 to 300.
And, we have found a few pedigree plums that pique the interest and catch the attention.
Of special interest, at least to me, is Hip 173 — an Orb colt out of the War Front mare Child Please. The dam is a full sister to Jack Milton and this sets up a very interesting cross from the Phipps Family breeding operation.
I have a Jack Milton 2YO filly, who I am very high on, as well. She is out of a Sightseeing mare, and is in training with young conditioner Stephen Lyster. I will be very interested to see how this one looks.
The other Hip that catches the attention, simply from the catalogue page, is Hip 225. This is a Tiznow filly out of a young Giant’s Causeway mare. Very nice broodmare sires dominate the page, and, once again, the female family of Jack Milton (back in the 4th dam). Interesting.
Will be fun to see some progeny by the young stallion Anchor Down, too. One that sticks out to me is Hip 224 — a gray filly out of a winning Speightstown mare.
