Frommer paid $235,000 for the colt last July.

The third seven-figure two-year-old was Hip 135, a speedy colt by Bernardini offered by Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds, agent. Eaton Sales, agent for M.V. Magnier purchased the colt for $1,450,000. Hartley/De Renzo purchased the colt for $350,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale.

Overall, 74 juveniles sold for $25,115,000, up 16.3% from 66 sold for $21,590,000 in 2016. The $339,392 average was good for a 3.8% increase over last year’s average of $327,121, while the median rose 8.0% to $270,000 from $250,000 in 2016. The RNA rate was a historical sale low of 14.9%.

Nyquist: Gulfstream Sale Success Story

On March 4, 2015, future Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Nyquist entered the paddock at Gulfstream Park, announced simply as “a bay colt by Uncle Mo out of Seeking Gabrielle.” After a solid 10:2 work two days prior, the handsome bay colt was popular among potential buyers, drawing a final bid of $400,000 from Doug O’Neill, agent. Nyquist was consigned by Niall Brennan Stables.

Nyquist made his first start for new owner Reddam Racing only three months selling at Gulfstream Park. On June 5, Nyquist won his debut at Santa Anita in what was then just 0.06 seconds off the track record for five furlongs. He made the jump directly to graded stakes company two months later, running away with the Best Pal S. (G2) at Del Mar by 5 ¼ lengths. Nyquist broke through at the top level in his next start, winning the Del Mar Futurity (G1) by 3 ¾ lengths before annexing the FrontRunner S. (G1) three weeks later at Santa Anita.

With four wins in as many starts in California, Nyquist shipped for the first time to Kentucky for the Breeders’ Cup Championships. Under gray skies, Nyquist was bumped hard twice as he broke from the far outside 13 post, raced wide throughout, swung into the six path on the final turn, and dug in doggedly to capture the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1).

Unbeaten in five starts as a juvenile, Nyquist took a brief winter break, during which he was named Eclipse Champion 2YO Male of 2015 by an astounding 255 votes. He returned to his home base at Santa Anita for his sophomore debut, which he dispatched future Grade 1 winner Exaggerator by 1 ½ lengths in the San Vicente S. (G2).

Nyquist returned to Gulfstream Park in April 2016 to go head-to-head with fellow unbeaten sophomore Mohaymen, who had annexed the two G2 Derby preps at Gulfstream in January and February. In a race that was touted as a heavyweight fight, Nyquist captured the Florida Derby (G1) easily, leading from the second call on to win the race by 3 ¼ lengths.

On May 7, Nyquist went to lucky post 13 to contest the Run for the Roses. After patiently tracking the pace from the outside, Nyquist took the lead in the stretch and never looked back. He won by 1 ¼ lengths over a field which included no less than 14 then-or-future graded/group stakes winners, including G1 winners Exaggerator, Gun Runner, Body’s Cause, Mor Spirit, Creator, and Outwork.

Nyquist retired with a record of eight wins in 11 starts and earnings of $5,189,200. He is currently standing his first season at stud at Darley in Lexington, KY.

The 2017 Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale of Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training will be held Wednesday, March 1 at 4 PM in the paddock at Gulfstream Park. The under tack show will be conducted on the main track beginning at 10 AM on Monday, February 27. The catalogue is available online.

Well-Related Cinnamon Spice Tops Strong Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale

Hip 345, 2017 Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed Sale

The 2017 Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale closed on a high note on Tuesday, yielding gains in gross and average over the 2016 renewal.

“We were pleasantly surprised at the level of activity [and] the mood,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “I think that the buyers found it generally tougher to buy than they thought there were going to and I think the sellers may have found a little more activity in the marketplace than they anticipated coming into the sale. I thought overall it was a very positive two days, very encouraging.”

Cinnamon Spice, a winning half-sister to Grade 1 winner Violence, topped the sale when purchased for $700,000 early in the second session by  Oussama Aboughazale’s International Equities Holding from the consignment of Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent for Fox Hill Farm (video). Consigned as Hip 345, Cinnamon Spice’s price tag was good for a 112% increase over last year’s sale topper.

Francis Relihan, bidding on behalf of Aboughazale, told The Blood-Horse, “She cost more than we expected, but the quality always rises to the top. We knew we would have a challenge to get her.”

On the other side of the sale, Mark Taylor of Taylor Made praised the result. “It exceeded our expectations,” he told The Blood-Horse.

Browning commented on the sale topper, “She captured everybody’s attention. As soon as anyone saw her, they wanted to own her. She’s a beautiful filly. The sales history on a broodmare comes in and she was bought by Fox Hill Farm, Tom McGreevy agent, you know that she’s going to be good looking, you that she’s going to have been treated right, you know that she’s going to have every opportunity. People have confidence doing business with them, and it showed again today.”

Hip 492, a colt by successful young sire Uncle Mo leapt to the top of the short yearlings when sold for $172,000 to Artic Bloodstock (video). The colt was consigned by Bluewater Sales, agent. The price represented a 72% increase over the top short yearling sold in 2016.

Over the course of two days, 351 hips sold for a gross of $9,501,800, up 15% from $8,260,600 for 341 hips sold last year. The $27,071 average represented an increase of 11.7% from $24,225 in 2016. The median was $9,000 and the RNA rate was 25.5%. Twenty-three hips sold for $100,000 or more, up from 14 in 2016.

Catalogue Now Available for The Gulfstream Sale

gulfstream_sale_cover_front_FINAL.pngFasig-Tipton has catalogued 162 entries for The Gulfstream Sale of Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training, to be held on Wednesday, March 1, in Hallandale Beach, Florida. The sale, which be conducted in Gulfstream Park’s walking ring, will begin at 4 pm.

The under tack show is scheduled for Monday, February 27, beginning at 10 am.

“This sale has a lot of momentum coming off two highly successful renewals since moving to Gulfstream Park in 2015,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “This catalogue reflects that momentum, with increased numbers and outstanding quality.”

This year’s catalogue cover features 2015 sale graduate NYQUIST, who decisively captured last year’s G1 Kentucky Derby to become the latest Classic success for The Gulfstream Sale.

“There is no better advertisement for a sale than selling the Kentucky Derby winner,” continued Browning. “It’s a great testament to the quality of horses our consignors offer at Gulfstream, and to the success that buyers are finding from purchasing these horses off a proven dirt track.  Prior to winning the Kentucky Derby, NYQUIST won the G1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream – thirteen months after he had performed over the very same racetrack in our under tack show.”

The catalogue is now available online and will also be available via the Equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available by Monday, January 30.
