Malibu Moon colt sets bar at OBS Under Tack show
June 8, 2017
A Malibu Moon coltz zipped through his eighth-mile work in :9 4/5 during Wednesday’s Under Tack show in advance of the June 13-14 OBS June Sale of 2-year-olds and Horses of Racing Age, one of only two workers on the day to put in a sub 10-second breeze (VIDEO).
Cataloged as hip No. 15 and consigned by Wavertree Stables, Inc. (Ciaran Dunne), Agent, the bay colt is the second foal out of graded stakes winner Golden Mystery, whose half-sister All Saint’s Day is the dam of a pair of stakes winners.
“The ones that are fast are always fast,” Dunne said after the bullet work. “So it was no surprise that he went quick, but you hope rather than expect a :9 4/5. But he’s always advertised himself as a good horse, so it was about what we were expecting.”
Malibu Moon will be represented by a total of five lots in next week’s sale.
