South Point Sales sold a $325,000 weanling and two mares for a combined $1.1 million at the November 5 Fasig-Tipton November ‘Night of the Stars’ sale.
Hip #47, the first weanling ever through the ring by Claiborne Farm’s Mastery, was purchased by Larry Best (Oxo Equine LLC) for $325,000.
The impressive colt also represented a big score for Rockbridge Bloodstock client Brushy Hill Enterprises (Brian Moore). Rockbridge purchased the mare Native One on behalf of Brushy Hill for $75,000 carrying this foal at last year’s Keeneland November auction. Native One hails from the immediate family of Mitole, who gave the page a big boost with his sensational victory in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) three days prior.
Six of the 9 weanlings offered by South Point found new homes, including two negotiated by Mike Recio post-sale. Among the others is a Constitution colt hammered down to Red River Bloodstock for $100,000.
The only two mares offered by South Point also proved wildly popular with buyers.
Ms Bad Behavior (Hip #156) sold to Freyer Bloodstock for $600,000. Winner of the Ladies Turf S. (G3) at Kentucky Downs on September 9, she has an active family behind her. Her half-brother, One Bad Boy, was crowned Queen’s Plate champion over the summer. The daughter of Blame racked up over $500,000 while under the care of trainer Richard Baltas. She raced in the colors of Sayjay Racing LLC, Greg Hall and Brooke Hubbard.
Another active Stakes winner, Zonda (Hip #218), was purchased by Live Oak Stud for $500,000. Longtime South Point Sales & Rockbridge Bloodstock client Matthew Schera purchased the Scat Daddy filly at the 2017 Fasig-Tipton Saratog Yearling sale for $155,000. She earned that back with a trio of victories in eight starts, including a romp in the $125,000 Maryland Millions Ladies Turf on October 19.
She’ll now raced in the famed colors of Charlotte Webers’ Live Oak Stud before joining the farm’s renowned broodmare band.
