First Into Mischief yearling brings $125,000


Tuesday, July 12, 2011

A filly from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Into Mischief kicked off the 2011 yearling season with a bang on Tuesday, becoming the first six-figure yearling to sell at the Fasig-Tipton July Sale in Lexington, Ky. Selling as Hip 8, the gorgeous bay filly attracted a final bid of $125,000 from buyer Deborah Easter, Agent.

The filly hails from the stakes-placed Lemon Drop Kid mare Kid Majic, and is from the immediate family of Grade 1 winners J P's Gusto and Proud Spell. Gainesway was the consignor. The filly had been purchased last fall as a weanling for $85,000 at Keeneland November.

Into Mischief's first yearlings were well-received Tuesday, as three went through the ring with three selling. Other than Hip 8, a pair of colts sold for $65,000 (Hip 152) and $45,000 (Hip 17), respectively, yielding an average of over $78,000 for Into Mischief with his initial offering of the yearling season.

Into Mischief was a Grade 1-winning 2-year-old and the top performer by his hot sire Harlan's Holiday. He ran the fastest CashCall Futurity (G1) in the last 15 years, defeating six graded stakes winners in 1:40.82 for 1 1/16 miles, and finished his 2-year-old campaign ranked second on the Experimental Free Handicap. He stood his third season at Spendthrift in 2011 for a fee of $8,500 stands and nurses.
