Gainesway sires near the top during day 3 of F-T sale

Wednesday, October 27, 2010 |
Fasig-Tipton’s October yearling sale closed with a $105,000 Afleet Alex filly and a $100,000 colt by Mr. Greeley as two of the top three prices during the third day of the Oct. 25-27 sale.

The Afleet Alex filly, cataloged as Hip No. 1020, sold to agent Bo Hunt from the Darby Dan Farm consignment. The bay filly is out of the unraced Forestry mare Summer Forest and comes from the family that produced Group 1-placed Firm Pledge.

Hip No. 1014, a $100,000 Mr. Greeley colt was bought by Pacific Ocean Stables from the Woodford Thoroughbreds consignment. The dark bay or brown colt is out of the stakes winner Stormy Venus, who is out of a sister to champion Serena’s Song. Stormy Venus is a half-sister to Doubles Partner, winner of the Grade 2 American Turf.
