A New York-bred filly by North America’s leading sire sold for $200,000 Tuesday, the second-highest price of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s selected yearling sale.

Colt Pike Bloodstock signed for the filly by Into Mischief, selling as Hip 248 late in the selected portion of Day 1 of the reconfigured OBS October sale, which also featured a 2-year-olds in training and horses of racing age segment. Consigned by Stuart Morris, agent, the filly is out of the stakes-placed Indian Charlie mare Indian Rush, dam of stakes winners March X Press and Harlan’s Honor.

Bred by Pine Ridge Stables Ltd. and foaled at Waldorf Farm in North Chatham, the filly was previously offered and listed as not sold on a final bid of $140,000 at the recent Keeneland September yearling sale.

Into Mischief is the sire of 2020 Kentucky Derby winner Authentic last year’s champion female sprinter Covfefe and the earners of more than $14.1 million in 2020. Indian Rush produced a colt by Into Mischief in 2020 and is in foal to Florida Derby winner Audible.

The second most expensive New York-bred during the selected yearling section Tuesday was Hip 227, a filly by leading freshman sire Laoban who brought $27,000 from Red Oak Farm Inc. Bred by Sequel Stallions and Sandee Schultz and consigned by Love’s Equine LLC, agent, the filly is out of the unraced Smarty Jones mare Betty’s Baroness, a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Excellent Meeting and stakes winners Crowning Meeting and Crown of Crimson.

The OBS sale continues with the second and final session of open yearlings starting at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
