F-T July: First Crop Profile #3

This week we are profiling some interesting first crop offerings at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton July Yearlings sale. Click here for a complete list of Fasig-Tipton July TrueNicks reports.

Hip# 57 – Flashy Bull – Image of Honor, by Honour and Glory (TrueNicks C)

Somewhat surprisingly to us, while he has turned out to be a solid stallion, Holy Bull (TrueNicks,SRO) didn’t throw to his Tartan/Genter background as often as we’d expected, making him a rather difficult horse to predict. However, his son Flashy Bull (TrueNicks,SRO), out of a mare by Mt. Livermore, might be different as Mt. Livermore’s female family very much ties into the Tartan background. This colt is out of an In Reality line mare (by Honour and Glory), who has three of his four great-grandsires reappearing in Flashy Bull’s pedigree.

Hip# 60 – Hard Spun – Indy Flash, by A.P. Indy (TrueNicks A)

There are already five stakes winners by Danzig sons out of mares by A.P. Indy (TrueNicks,SRO), and from just 41 starters. We’d expect Hard Spun (TrueNicks,SRO) to be particularly good with mares descending from Seattle Slew since he’s out of a mare by Turkoman, and the first major sire out of a Turkoman mare, Point Given (TrueNicks,SRO), has three stakes winners, including grade I winner Point Ashley, and Champion Sealy Hill, from only 17 foals out of Seattle Slew line mares. It’s probably because Turkoman is out of a mare by Table Play, who is bred on the same Round Table/Nasrullah cross as Poker. This yearling is particularly interesting as the third dam is a three-parts-sister to Alydar, sire of Turkoman. Click the thumbnail for a full-size TrueNicks report.
