New York-bred fillies proved in high demand during the opening two sessions of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s July sale of 2-year-olds and horses of racing age Tuesday and Wednesday.

Shack’s Lil Mishap, a New York-bred daughter of 2011 Preakness winner Shackleford, started the big two-day run when she landed a final bid of $375,000 as Hip 15 to top the opening session.

Donato Lanni, agent, bought the filly out of Indian Charlie mare Peace Queen from the Jesse Hoppel’s Coastel Equine LLC consignment. Shack’s Lil Mishap breezed a quarter-mile Monday in :21 4/5, the fastest at the distance during presale workouts Monday.

Bred in the Empire State by James G. Doyle, Shack’s Lil Mishap is out of a half sister to Grade 2 winner and $654,698-earner Tizaqueena from the family of graded stakes winners Ziggy’s Act, Miss Mo Mentum, Lookin For Eight and Summersault.

Wednesday’s second session topper was Hip 640, a New York-bred daughter of first-crop sire and Grade 3 winner Not This Time purchased by Emerald Sales, agent for Tobey L. Morton on a bid of $270,000.

Consigned by de Meric Sales, agent, the filly out of the A.P. Indy mare Exotic Design breezed an eighth in 9 4/5 during presale workouts, the fastest of last Thursday’s session.

Bred by Sequel Stallions NY and Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings LLC, the Not This Time filly previously sold for $19,000 at the 2019 OBS October yearling sale.
