A yearling filly from the first crop of Spendthrift sire Tiz Wonderful sold for $130,000 at the July 12 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky sale, the highest yearling price at auction yet for the multiple graded-stakes winning stallion.
Hip No. 51, a bay filly, was consigned by Rosilyn Polan's Sunday Morning Thoroughbreds. The winning ticket was signed for by Bob Feld in the name of Sagamore Farm.
The new purchase, a Kentucky-bred, is out of No More Ironing, already the dam of nine winners. Her top performer was Sneaky Quiet, who bankrolled $290,857 and won two stakes and also finished third in the Kentucky Oaks (G1). No More Ironing is also responsible for the stakes winner Ironman Dehere and the stakes-placed Whiletheiron'shot.
Tiz Wonderful was undefeated in three starts at two, winning the trio of races by a combined 20 lengths. His victories that year came in the Kentucky Jockey Club S. (G2) and Iroquois S. (G3), both at Churchill Downs. He stands at Spendthrift Farm for $12,500 LFS&N.
