$425,000 double for Tizway in the Saratoga auction ring

Tizway

Tuesday, August 05, 2014
A pair of yearlings from the first crop of Tizway registered in a big way with buyers at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearlings sale August 4-5, with both juveniles co-incidentally bringing $425,000 each.

The figure is the highest paid at auction for any freshman sire yearling this year.

On Monday evening, hip No. 34 was the star. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales, agent for Spendthrift, the dark bay colt went to Matthew Schera. Out of the A. P. Indy mare Lady Nichola, the colt is a half-brother to Tokyo City Cup S. (G3) winner Worth Repeating. This is the same family as Spendthrift stallion Temple City.

Tuesday, hip No. 119 took the spotlight when Whispering Hill Farm signed the winning ticket for the filly from the Woodford Thoroughbreds, agent, consignment. The  filly is the first foal out of Vindy City, a stakes-winning Vindication mare who hails from the same family as graded stakes winners Apriority and Bahamian Squall.
