OBS Spring 2YO sale day 2 report: Medal Count
April 24, 2019
Wednesday’s second session of the OBS Spring Sale of 2-year-olds in Training included a $90,000 Medal Count colt sold by Kings Equine, agent for Spendthrift Farm.
Cataloged as hip No. 523, the bay colt went to Brenda Tabraue.
The Kentucky-bred colt, who breezed a furlong in a swift 10 seconds flat during the Under Tack Show, is out of the stakes-winning Successful Appeal mare Quiet Success, who also placed in Churchill Downs’ Debutante S. (G3) and five other stakes.
Medal Count is part of Spendthrift Farm’s Safe Bet program, which assures breeders that a stallion’s first crop of two-year-olds will have at least one Graded/Group stakes winner in 2019, or the breeder will be completely relieved of the stud fee for his or her impending foal in 2020.
