The 2-year-old sales season kicked off with a bang on Tuesday for First-Crop sire Wicked Strong when a filly by the Spendthrift stallion brought a winning bid of $425,000 at the OBS March Sale of 2-year-olds in training.

It was the second-highest price for a lot by a First-year sire during the session. The filly, hip No. 134, was consigned by Mayberry Farm, agent, and had plenty of pre-sale buzz after breezing an eighth-mile in 09 4/5-seconds during last week’s Under Tack show.

The winning bidder was Lauren Carlisle, agent.

“She was at the top of the list,” said Carlisle. “A fast filly with a good mind, and by a stallion that got better with age. The Wicked Strongs have breezed really well.”

The Kentucky bred bay is out of Diva Girl, who has already produced eight winners and herself a sister to a pair of black type winners.

Wicked Strong also had a $150,000 filly go through the ring on Tuesday, with Bradley Throughbreds, agent, acquiring the bay who is from the same family as Classic-placed Social Inclusion.

Wicked Strong has an additional six lots in the catalog for Wednesday’s closing session of the sale.
