It’s set to be a big two weeks for the first crop of three-time Grade 1 winner RAGING BULL at the November breeding stock sales with the stallion having weanlings at both the Fasig-Tipton and Keeneland sales.
Two weanlings are on offer at Fasig-Tipton, starting with Hip 58. Consigned by Gainesway, the Carol Ricker-bred colt is a half-brother to the stakes winning Killer Bird and Grade 3-placed Stellar Lady. They are out of the winning Brahms mare Stellar Baby, whose daughter is the dam of Finest City Stakes winner You Look Cold. That filly registered a fourth win after the catalog was released.
Each of the three dams on the page have produced at least one stakes winner, a stakes producing daughter, and two stakes performers among their 19 winners.
Hip 101 offered by Eaton Sales is the first foal out of Frosted mare Cajoon. That mare is out of the multiple stakes winning Cajun Delta Dawn, who is a half-sister to the stakes winner Mom’z Laugh and the stakes-placed duo of Peace At Dawn and Cajun Breeze.
Bred by Lynwood Stable, there are nine stakes performers on the February-born foal’s page with six stakes winners.
The action moves to Keeneland the following day with 10 on offer by RAGING BULL over the nine sessions.
