First Foal a Filly for Force the Pass
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Monday, February 8, 2021 at 5:18 pm | Back to: Shared News Updated: February 8, 2021 at 5:20 pm Force the Pass–Magical Point filly The first foal by Grade I-winning millionaire Force the Pass (Speightstown–Social Queen, by Dynaformer) arrived Feb. 4 at Murmur Farm in Maryland. The filly is out of Magical Point, a daughter of Point Given out of a stakes winning and producing full-sister to Grade I winner and sire Include (Broad Brush). Magical Point, the dam of three winners, and her filly are both owned by Wasabi Ventures Stables, who also stood Force the Pass at Anchor & Hope Farm in Maryland during the 2020 breeding season. Racing as a homebred for Richard Santulli's Colts Neck Stables, Force the Pass won the GI Belmont Derby as a 3-year-old, having previously scored in the GIII Penn MileS. He added a victory in Monmouth Park's Cliff Hanger Stakes as a 6-year-old and placed in an additional half-dozen graded stakes. He is out of a multiple graded stakes winner. Force the Pass stood a single season for Wasabi prior to his sale to Haif Stud in Saudi Arabia last summer, covering 57 mares at Anchor & Hope. “This filly has everything you'd hope for in a stallion's first foal,” according to George Adams, Wasabi's Director of Stallions & Breeding. “She's got plenty of leg, lots of substance, and she's nice and correct. If they all look like this, the breeders are going to be very happy.” For more information, contact George Adams at 617-595-8849, [email protected], or visit www.forcethepass.com. Not a subscriber?

Speightstown Colt Tops Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed Opener
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Hip 128 | Fasig-Tipton photo By Jessica Martini A yearling colt by Speightstown (hip 128) brought the top price during Monday's opening session of the Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed Sale when bringing a final bid of $165,000 from Calumet Farm. Consigned by Stuart Morris, the yearling was one of four offerings to bring six figures during the day. In all, 207 horses sold Monday for a gross of $3,956,300. The average was $19,113 and the median was $8,000. The buy-back rate for the session was 21.6%. “I thought the activity today was very encouraging,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning, Jr. “A lot of horses got moved at fair prices. It was a fairly consistent marketplace with no real surprises. There was significant demand for what were perceived to be the quality offerings and there was reasonable trade for the less expensive offerings. I'm not going to say it was crazy, but there was activity.” The results remained fairly consistent with the opening session of the 2020 auction, which saw 180 head sell for $3,369,200 for an average of $18,718 and a median of $8,000. The buy-back rate for that session was 28.9%. “I feel like it's a very fair market,” Morris said. “I don't know that I would call it robust or electric, but it's a very fair market. For what I walked up there with, I feel like my results were what they should have been. I got tough with a couple, but I've had several RNA's sold after the fact today, so I think it's a very healthy and fair market.” Morris consigned Monday's session topper on behalf of his father Jeffry Morris's Highclere, which bred the yearling. “He's a lovely colt with a lot of future in him,” Morris said. “He's a late April foal and had all of the right parts and pieces. He's very athletic with a good walk and great balance. He was good and correct, but he was definitely going to be a horse with a lot of improvement and growth in him because of his birthday. We were happy with the result and very flattered that an operation like Calumet bought him from us. We are wishing them the best of luck and we're hoping they can make him one of their stakes horses.” The colt is out of Royal Ancestry (Distorted Humor), a full-sister to Grade I winner Awesome Humor and the dam of stakes-placed More Royalty (More Than Ready). Stuart Morris signed the ticket to acquire the then-11-year-old mare for $9,000 at the 2019 OBS Winter Mixed Sale. “She was a beautiful mare with a great pedigree under her and some nice production,” Morris said of that purchase. “But she had had some production history issues around the time that we purchased her. We spoke to the folks taking care of her and felt that it was something we could manage and we got her bought for a fair price because of her production history. We got her home and she's just been an absolute star for us. She had this foal late last year and we didn't breed her back just because it was a late cover. She is back on the books this year and I believe she's going to go to Bolt d'Oro for my father.” The Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed Sale continues with what is expected to be a lively final session Tuesday. “We've got a really nice group of horses to sell tomorrow,” Browning said Monday evening. “There are some high-quality offerings in the supplement and I think we'll have some fireworks tomorrow. And we'll have some really nice horses throughout the day.” Bidding at Newtown Paddocks begins Tuesday at 10 a.m. Not a subscriber? Click here to sign up for the daily PDF or alerts.
