The first up for the Belmont Stakes (G1) winner and stakes winning juvenile is Hip 27 offered by Cary Frommer and bred by Bridlewood Farm.
The colt will be making his second trip through the ring after selling with Gainesway at Fasig-Tipton October and is out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Lucky Song. That 10-year-old is the dam of the winning Prince Ricky from her two to race and makes this colt bred on the same TAPIT x Unbridled’s Song cross as champion Unique Bella.
Lucky Song is a daughter of the Grade 3 winning Caminadora, who is part of seven generations of mares who either won a stakes or produced a stakes winner.
Pretty ‘n Smart’s foals have included Grade 1 winner Cupid – who is also by TAPWRIT’s sire TAPIT, and three other stakes winners. Among those produced from descendants of Pretty ‘n Smart are fellow Kentucky Oaks contender Ain’t Easy and Group 3 winner Fiano Romano.
Hip 60 out of Smart N Soft comes into the sale with an update after his half-sister Bellamore impressively broke her maiden in late February to take their dam to two winners from two to race. A $150,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Select Yearling Sale purchase by Gina Fennell, the Gainesway-bred colt is a grandson of Grade 2 winning Softly.
Softly herself is one of three stakes performers out of stakes-placed Coragil with 11 stakes performers listed under Coragil and her daughters.
Hip 69 is a colt consigned by SVG Thoroughbreds, agent, out of the Graydar mare Top Hat Tango – a half sister to Grade 2 winner Fast Bullet. Graydar himself is a son of coveted broodmare sire Unbridled’s Song. The Tapit / Unbridled’s Song cross is the same that produced dual champion Unique Bella.
Third dam of this TAPWRIT colt is the juvenile champion Brave Raj, herself the grand-dam of Eurosilver (G2W/G1P/Sire), and furthermore her grandaughters have produced Grade 1 winners Almanaar (GB) and Lady Prancelot (IRE).
Hip 69 breezed a swift 10 Flat on the dirt, in the under tack show on Monday.
Golden Rock sends the final TAPWRIT of the day through the ring as Hip 71. Bred by Damon Ming in Florida, he was a $97,000 purchase by St George Sales at the Fasig-Tipton October sale.
A half-brother to two winners from three to race out of the 14-time winner Uno Royale, this gray colt is also a grandson of 12-time winner and multiple stakes winner Royal d’Oro, who has also seen one of her daughters produce Grade 3 winner Elusive Lady. This is a winning family from top to bottom with one of the colt’s siblings winning eight races and Uno Royale and her three winning siblings also winning 38 races between them.
Macho Uno daughters crossed on TAPIT sons account for 14 winners from 19 starters, led by the Group 3 winning Roheryn.
