The yearling sales are upon us and, as expected, the first Northern American crop of Sir Prancealot (IRE) is making some noise.
At the CTBA Northern California Yearling sale yesterday, a colt out of Root Beer Rag (Hip 58, pictured above) sold by Checkmate Thoroughbreds, as agent for breeder Jeff Ganje, topped the sale when sold to Robert Jones for $50,000. A filly out of Frankly J’ray (Hip 9, pictured below) bred and sold by Checkmate Thoroughbreds brought the 3rd highest price when sold to Harris Farms for $40,000.
Expect more of the same at the WTBOA Sale August 23 at Emerald Downs in Washington and the Fasig-Tipton sale in Pomona next month on September 27.
