When the dust settled after Wednesday’s opening session of Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s June sale of 2-year-olds and horses of racing age, a bay colt by Paynter emerged as the top-selling New York-bred of the day. Going to Winning Move Stable / for $100,000, he was the co-ninth highest selling juvenile of the session.

Thirteen New York-breds changed hands in the session (including two private sales) of 20 offered, which generated a relative high buyback percentage of 35%. On the other hand, the other major New York-bred indicators outperformed the overall sale figures. The New York-bred juveniles averaged $34,615, while the sale overall posted a $32,725 average. The New York-bred median of $22,000 topped the overall median price of $20,000 in session one.

The six-figure Paynter colt, aptly named Paynter Son and offered as Hip 168, was bred by James and Janeane Everatt, Arika Everatt-Meeuse and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Frothinger. The third foal out of multiple winner Chinchilla Lady, he has two winning siblings from two to start. When offered last year, the colt RNA’d at the Keeneland September yearling sale for $4,700. At OBS he posted a snappy furlong in :10 1/5 in the under tack show (VIDEO) for consignor Golden Noguez, Agent.

Chinchilla Lady, a Kentucky-bred who has since relocated to Saudi Arabia, is out of stakes winner and graded stakes-placed runner Boxer Girl (Two Punch), and a half sister to multiple stakes performer Lady Diva Ga Ga (Exchange Rate). She foaled a filly by War Dancer in 2018.

Hips 361-720 will be offered Thursday and Hips 721-1059 will sell on Friday. Both remaining sessions begin at 10:00 a.m.
