Lane’s End Sales started the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale strong and ended stronger. Day 2 proved to be an outstanding session for our clients, led by the sale of an Unbridled’s Song–Dream Supreme colt for $775,000. Dale Romans, as agent, purchased the event’s fourth-highest-priced yearling, a Kinsman Farm-bred half-brother to G1SW Majestic Warrior (A.P. INDY) and two other black-type winners. “I thought he had the best pedigree in the sale,” Romans told the Thoroughbred Daily News. “He is a very good-looking yearling and very well balanced. I think he was one of the best horses in the sale. He has the pedigree to be a stallion after his racing career is over.”
The sale’s second session also saw a Lane’s End-consigned son of Galileo (Ire)–Egyptian Queen go to Robert LaPenta for $525,000. The colt, produced by a half-sister to A.P. INDY’s talented son A.P. Warrior, was bred in Ireland by Smythson. LaPenta has found plenty of previous success at the Lane’s End barn at Saratoga. In 2009, he purchased eventual Grade 1 stakes winner Dialed In, a son of MINESHAFT, for $425,000 at the Spa. From Lane’s End, LaPenta has also purchased MGSW Cool Coal Man (MINESHAFT) and SW & MGSP C P West (CAME HOME).
Closing out the Saratoga Sale for Lane’s End was a colt by Tiznow–Holiday Runner who went to John Ferguson for $375,000. The half-brother to MG1SW Seventh Street was bred by Summer Wind Farm.
Congratulations and thank you to all our clients for another great Saratoga Sale, and good luck to the buyers of these exciting young horses!
