Eddie Woods led all consignors at the March 26 Fasig-Tipton Florida 2YO sale, with seven juveniles selling for a total of $3,585,000. Woods also dominated the top end of the sale, consigning five of the top 12 priced juveniles to go through the auction ring at the Palm Meadows Training Center.
The top seller of the quintet was hip No. 56, a dark bay son of Hard Spun who brought a winning bid of $870,000 from David Loder on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed. The colt is a son of stakes winner Lucky Lavender Gal, a full-sister to the dam of Barbaro. The Grade 1-placed mare has produced a pair of stakes horses, including stake winner Lavender Lass.
Steve Young, agent went to $825,000 for hip No. 123, a bay colt by multiple Grade 1 winner Street Boss. The juvenile is a half-brother to $500,000-plus earner Swingforthefences.
Hip No. 67, a colt by Lion Heart, went for $625,000 to trainer Mark Casse, agent, who is always active at the Florida sales. The colt comes from the same family as $1 million earner Weigelia and the incomparable champion filly Davona Dale.
Hip No. 65, a filly, brought a winning bid of $490,000 from Stonestreet Stables. The bay juvenile is out of the stakes-winning mare More Than Pretty.
Rounding out the group was hip No. 146, a colt by champion Candy Ride (ARG). The dark bay Kentucky bred is the first foal out of Christina Lake, who is out of multiple stakes winner Christina Czarina, a producer of 12 winners and four stakes horses.
