$320K colt highlights OBS March Day 1 for Jimmy Creed

March 14, 2017

A colt from the first crop of Spendthrift stallion Jimmy Creed brought $320,000 during Tuesday’s session of the March 14-15 OBS March Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale.

Thoroughbred Champions Training Center LLC consigned hip No. 179, which went to perennial leading buyer Dennis O’Neill. The bay colt is out of the five-time stakes winner Shiny Sheet, also the dam of Grade 3-placed Small Town Talk. The Kentucky-bred colt had worked a quarter mile in :21.3 seconds during the Under Tack Show.

Jimmy Creed was the second-leading Freshman Sire during the first day of the sale, behind only Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Orb. Jimmy Creed bred 141 mares in 2014, his first season at stud.
