A short yearling filly out of multiple stakes winner Freudie Anne, a finalist for champion New York-bred honors in 2014, landed a bid of $130,000 Tuesday to become the most expensive New York-bred sold at the two-day Fasig-Tipton Kentucky winter mixed sale in Lexington.

Cherry Knoll Farm purchased the filly, a daughter of Munnings added to the sale in late January and selling as Hip 635. Bred by Fergus Galvin, Marc Detampel, Jayne Johnson and Adrian Wallace – many of the partners who campaigned Freudie Anne – and foaled at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs, the filly was consigned by Hunter Valley Farm, agent.

Freudie Anne earned New York-bred championship consideration during her 2-year-old season, when she won three of four starts including the East View Stakes. The daughter of Freud added another stakes win at 3 in Saratoga Race Course’s Statue of Liberty division of the New York Stallion Series along with three more victories through 2017.

Freudie Anne’s first foal, a colt by Munnings bred by the same partnership, sold for $100,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearling Showcase.

The top-selling New York-bred yearling colt at the sale also went through the ring during Tuesday’s final session. Hip 430, a son of former leading New York-based freshman sire Laoban, earned that honor when Chris White landed him for $80,000.

Bred by Southern Equine Stables LLC and foaled at Irish Hill Century Farm in Stillwater, the colt is the third foal out of the Medaglia d’Oro mare E Storm. He’s a half brother to the winning 4-year-old Bodemeister colt Big Royal Lineage and a full brother to the placed Laoban filly Esotica.

Southern Equine also bred E Storm out of their winning Storm Cat mare Surprises Welcomed bought for $3 million at the 2006 Keeneland September yearling sale.

Bluewater Sales, agent, which sold a $55,000 colt by Laoban for Southern Equine Monday, also consigned the Laoban-E Storm colt. E Storm, back in foal to Laoban and consigned as Hip 429 by Bluewater, was purchased Tuesday by Brookstone Farm for $20,000.
