Malibu Moon’s lone offering to go through the ring at the March 27th Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream 2-year-old sale brought a winning bid of $750,000, one of the top five fillies of the auction.

WinStar Farm procured the filly, hip No. 20, from the Wavertree Stables, Inc. consignment.

Already named Crystal Ball, the filly is out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Déjà vu, who is a half-sister to Grade 1 winners Madcap Escapade and Dubai Escapade.

Malibu Moon, the sire of more than 115 stakes winners and the earners of over $114 million, has a 2019 2-year-old sales average of $263,333 early in the juvenile auction season. Six more of his 2-year-olds will be offered at the April 9 Keeneland sale.
