A New York-bred weanling daughter of Curlin earned the distinction of becoming the fifth top-selling youngster at Fasig-Tipton’s boutique single-session November breeding stock sale on Monday evening when she was purchased by John Dowd, agent, for $420,000. The top-selling New York-bred broodmare Monday night was 5-year-old Ginned Up who brought $250,000.

The Curlin filly was bred by Southern Equine Stables, LLC and foaled at Sequel Stallions New York in Hudson on March 2. Consigned by Bluewater Sales LLC, Agent XX, and offered as Hip 78, she is the second foal out of Hung the Moon, a Pin Oak Stud homebred and stakes-winning daughter of Malibu Moon out of a stakes-placed Storm Cat mare.

Hung the Moon was purchased by Bluewater Sales for Southern Equine Stables for $280,000 at the 2015 Keeneland November sale in foal to Medaglia d’Oro. The Kentucky-bred filly she produced in 2016 went on to bring $1 million this summer at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale.

Hung the Moon, who hails from the extended female family of graded winner Whimsey, was bred to Laoban this year.

The top-selling New York-bred broodmare, 5-year-old Ginned Up by Indian Charlie (Hip 178), issues from the family of Affirmed Success. Bear Stables LTD paid $250,000 to get her from the consignment of Royal Bloodstock, agent Anthony Robertson.

Selling in foal to Dialed In, Ginned Up made sale headlines as a juvenile when she sold to Gary Contessa, on behalf of Chip McEwen’s Wounded Warrior Stables, for $390,000 at the 2014 OBS spring 2-year-old sale. The mare, who went on to become a winner, was bred by Jonathan Davis’ Milfer Farm, Inc. She is out of My Success (A.P. Indy), who is a half-sister to $2.2 million-earner and sire Affirmed Success.
