From the Families of Leading Sires A.P. Indy and Storm Cat

I ducked out of work this afternoon and drove the 2.2 miles to Keeneland for a bit of horse-watching.  There were two "Day Nine" hips that had caught my attention when I went through the catalog way back when it came out, and I wanted to see them.

  • Hip #3086 (catalog page) was a bay filly by Yes It's True (SRO).  Her third dam is Weekend Surprise, blue-hen dam of super-sire A.P. Indy (SRO).  Disappointing RNA at $70,000.
  • Hip #3180 (catalog page) was a dark bay/brown filly by El Corredor (SRO).  Her second dam is Terlingua, dam of Storm Cat (SRO).  Good value at $85,000.

As it turns out, I missed seeing the first filly, but I was impressed by the second.  Athletic and feminine -- just the way a Thoroughbred yearling filly ought to look.

It's neat to see fillies from the immediate family of today's top-tier sires.

Don't miss any of the results of the Keeneland September sale (or other big sales) -- check out the daily Auctions Data Digest on the home page for Thoroughbred sales previews and results.  (Here's the Day 9 edition of Keeneland September 2008.)
