Mitole colt brings $350,000 during Monday’s Saratoga opener
August 8, 2022
Eclipse champion Mitole’s lone first-crop offering brought plenty of attention during the first session of the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling sale, ultimately selling for $350,000.
The chestnut colt, hip No. 11, was consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent, and went to Tom McCrocklin, bidding on behalf of Champion Equine.
The Kentucky-bred’s dam Liza Too is already responsible for multiple stakes winner Long Weekend. Liza Too is a half-sister to two-time Grade 1 winner Paulassilverlining and Carter H. (G1) winner Dads Caps.
Mitole had the distinction of being the only four-time Grade 1 winner during his championship season of 2019, which was capped by his Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) win. He has been one of Spendthrift’s most popular stallions during his first two seasons at stud, breeding an average of 219 mares. He stood for $15,000 in 2022.
