Hip No. 126, a handsome colt by Malibu Moon, easily topped Day 1 of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic yearling sale on Oct. 5th at Timonium, fetching $117,000 from buyer Dell Ennis to be the only six-figure price on the day.

Consigned by Paramount Sales as agent, the bay colt is a Pennsylvania-bred hailing from the Deputy Commander mare Two Chimneys. He was bred by Dr. William Hovis and Taylor Brothers Properties.

“Malibu Moon was a hero up here,” Paramount Sales’s Gabriel Duignan told Blood-Horse. “(Hip 126) a very nice horse, and he’s been quite popular. I thought he had one of the better (catalog) pages in the sale. I’m very happy with how he sold, but I thought the man bought a very good horse at that price.”
