Pair of six-figure yearlings at F-T October for Brody’s Cause
October 27, 2021
Two juveniles by dual Grade 1 winner Brody’s Cause sold for six figures at this week’s Fasig-Tipton October Yearling sale.
Leading the way was hip No. 432, consigned by Stuart Morris Agent III and purchased by Centofani Thoroughbreds for $135,000. The dark bay colt is out of Sh Sh Shakin, whose current 2-year-old filly is the undefeated, three-time stakes winner Averly Jane. She is also the dam of Chattel, another stakes-winning 2-year-old filly.
During Monday’s opening session of the four-day auction, hip No. 226, consigned by Vinery Sales, agent, went to Woodford Thoroughbreds for $120,000. Also a dark bay filly, the youngster is a half-sister to this year’s Ellis Park Debutante S. winner Verylittlecents (Goldencents).
Brody’s Cause had his biggest book to date in 2021, breeding 147 mares. He will stand the 2022 season at Spendthrift Farm for $5,000 S&N.
