Vino Rosso top freshman sire with $550,000 filly at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga
August 8, 2022
Vino Rosso had his best result to date of the 2022 yearling auction season Monday evening during the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling sale when hip No. 71 brought a winning bid of $550,000.
The Eclipse champion and Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner is represented by his first crop at the sale, which has its concluding session on Tuesday.
Gainesway, Agent offered the bay filly, with Lael Stables, of Barbaro fame, the winning buyer. The price was the highest paid for a lot by a freshman sire during Monday’s session.
Bred in Kentucky by Mark Stansell, the filly is the second foal out of the Grade 2-placed Uncle Mo mare Shaken. The mare is a half-sister to Grade 2 horses Sandstone and Sway Away.
Vino Rosso, who stood this year for $20,000 live foal, has three lots in the catalog for Tuesday.
