The May 21-22 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale saw a Corinthian colt bring $100,000, nearly six times his stud fee, during day 1 of the 2-year-old sale. Corinthian currently ranks seventh on the North American second crop sire list in progeny earnings and his 22 individual winners is sixth best on the list.
Cataloged as hip No. 166, the chestnut colt was consigned by Eisaman Equine, agent. The winning bid came from the partnership of Harvey Clarke and Paul Braveman.
The New York bred juvenile is the first foal out of Saratoga Summer, who is a half-sister to the stakes winner Charley Tango and the stakes-placed filly Cosmic Halo. The family also includes Grade 2 winners The Cliff's Edge and Tizaqueena.
