A New York-bred Flatter colt who turned in one of the fastest quarter-mile pre-sale workouts commanded one of the top prices during Tuesday’s opening session of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s March sale of 2-year-olds in training.

Selling as Hip 211 out of Ciaran Dunne’s Wavertree Stables Inc. consignment, the colt sold for $260,000 to Carolyn Wilson to highlight the day for the Empire State. Out of the winning More Than Ready mare She’s Ready Made, a full sister to stakes winner and $220,399-earner Miss Southern Miss, the colt breezed in :20.3 during the sale’s under-tack show.

Bred by Maurice and Samantha Regan’s Newtown Anner Stud, the chestnut colt is the fifth foal out of She’s Ready Made and sold last year for $100,000 at the Keeneland September yearling sale out of the Blake-Albina Thoroughbred Services consignment.

Two of She’s Ready Made’s three foals to race are winners bred in New York – Fled, a full brother to the $260,000 colt; and She Takes Charge, a mare by Take Charge Indy.

The sale of Hip 211 led strong returns for New York-breds on the day. OBS reports sales on 12 of the 13 offered for a total of $1,102,000, an average price of $91,833.

Wavertree also sold Hip 178, a New York-bred colt by Midshipman for $210,000 during the opening session. High Point Bloodstock purchased the colt bred by Bertram and Diana Firestone and out of the Thunder Gulch mare Regal Approach.

The 10th foal out of the $118,721-earner and half sister to Grade 3 winner Mr Maybe, the colt was reported sold as a weanling for $27,000 to James B. Keogh at the 2019 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. He breezed a quarter in :20.4 during pre-sale workouts.

The sale continues with the second and final session starting at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
