The leading New York-bred sold during Thursday’s third session of the OBS Spring sale of 2-year-olds in training also ended the day as the sale’s top-selling colt bred in the Empire State.

Bloodstock agent Mike Ryan purchased Hip 684, a colt by Overanalyze who breezed an eighth in :10 during presale workouts, privately for $300,000. The colt, the third most expensive New York-bred sold from the first three sessions, is out of the three-time winning Curlin mare Curlamorous.

Bred by Hidden Point Farm and consigned by Dynasty Thoroughbreds, the colt is a half-brother to two winners out of the mare who is a half sister to multiple stakes winner and $640,906-earner Da Stoops from the family of Grade 2 winner Humorous Lady. The colt sold for 12 times more than he did his last time through the OBS sales ring when JDR Farm bought him from the Dynasty Thoroughbreds consignment at the OBS October yearling sale for $25,000.

The colt is also the first New York-bred and youngest foal for his dam. Curlamorous also raced for Hidden Point Farm in the final two races of a career that saw her finish in the top three in 10 of 15 starts and earn $87,945.

Makoto Kato purchased the session’s second most expensive New York-bred, Hip 853, a Frosted colt named Flurry of Notes, for $210,000. A third generation homebred for Chester and Mary Broman, who sold a homebred out of Grade 1 winner Artemis Agrotera for $335,000 Wednesday, the Frosted colt is a third generation homebred for New York’s seven-time leading breeders.

Consigned by Sequel Bloodstock, agent for the Bromans, the colt breezed an eighth in :10 during presale workouts. He’s out of the winning Medaglia d’Oro mare G Note, whose two foals of racing age are both New York-bred winners. G Note is a half-sister to the multiple stakes winning New York-bred Mineralogist, who is also the dam of the Bromans’ stakes winner Can You Diggit.

Out of Grade 2 winner Seeking The Ante, G Note is also a half-sister to stakes-placed Risk a Chance and a granddaughter to multiple Grade 1 winner Antespeed, who the Bromans bought for $900,000 as a 4-year-old during her final season of racing.

G Note had a New York-bred Bernardini colt last year and foaled a Practical Joke colt in New York April 19.

Through the first three sessions 11 New York-breds have brought six figures, led by a $365,000 Candy Ride filly sold during Wednesday’s session.

OBS reported sales of 50 of the 65 New York-breds through the ring for an average of $73,000 and $40,000 median.

The final session of the sale starts at 10:30 a.m. Friday with hips 913 through 1217 slated to run through the ring.
