Three Malibu Moon colts lead the way at Saratoga


Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Just two days after siring a new Grade 1 winner at Saratoga, Malibu Moon posted one of the highest averages of all sires at the Saratoga Selected Sale.

 

Four Malibu Moon yearlings were listed as sold, for an average of $237,500, nearly six times the stud fee.

Topping the quartet of yearlings was a $350,000 purchase by Michael Iavarone's IEAH Inc. Hip No. 173, a chestnut colt, was consigned by Warrendale Sales, agent, for Spendthrift. The yearling is the second foal out of the Quiet American mare Silent Siren.

Another Spendthrift-owned offering was hip No. 179, consigned by Legacy Bloodstock, agent. The dark bay or brown colt was purchased by $250,000 by Mark Casse, agent. The yearling is the first foal out of Spirited Away, winner of the Truly Bound H. at Fair Grounds. Her granddam was the champion mare North Sider, a multiple Grade 1 winner of $1.1 million.


Twin Creeks Racing went to $200,000 for hip No. 174, who was consigned by Nursery Place, agent. The chestnut colt is the second foal out of the Silver Charm mare Silver Impulse. The mare was a stakes winner at age two in Canada, and was Grade 3-placed at age four. Her half-sister, The Golden Noodle, was also a stakes winner as a juvenile and finished third in the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet.

The very first horse of the sale was a Malibu Moon filly consigned by Eaton Sales, agent. She sold for $150,000 to Tom F. Van Meter, agent. The bay filly is out of Your Out, who won several stakes on the mid-Atlantic circuit and was second in the Delaware H. (G3).

Malibu Moon is America’s #3 Sire in 2010.
