VA-Bred Tops Midlantic Session

The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale opened Monday in Timonium with the specter of uncertainty in the industry caused by the pandemic and the havoc it has wreaked on the global economy hanging over all participants, but the session was punctuated by vibrant bidding across the board and concluded with a sparkling 20% buy-back rate. A colt by Uncle Mo, bred in Virginia by the William M. Backer Revocable Trust,  brought the day’s highest price when selling to Michael Lund Peterson for $1.1 million.

The colt was an $185,000 RNA as a yearling at last year’s Saratoga yearling sale.

Other Virginia-breds selling:

67 C by Union Rags, out Kiowa, by Stephen Got Even – $140,000 Ron Ellis, Agent

414 C by Bodemeister, out of Bilboquet by Smart Strike – $20,000 Al Rashid Stables LLC
