A daughter of New York-based freshman sire Redesdale sold for $150,000 and contributed to a strong showing by fillies during the opening session of the OBS June sale of 2-year-olds in training and horses of racing age Tuesday in Ocala.

Clay Scherer, agent, purchased Hip 123, a chestnut filly out of the unraced Exchange Rate mare Miz Midtown from the consignment of Omar Ramirez Bloodstock, agent. Bred by Windylea Farm-New York LLC and foaled at Old Saratoga Equine Service in Schuylerville, the filly sold to Team Fun for $30,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern fall yearling sale and was a $70,000 RNA at the recent OBS April sale of 2-year-olds in training.

The filly is the third New York-bred foal out of Miz Midtown, who is also the dam of the winning 3-year-old Bal a Bali colt Bali’s Shade and the unraced 4-year-old Central Banker filly First Deposit. Windylea Farm bred those two, along with a yearling New York-bred yearling filly by Noble Mission. Miz Midtown produced a colt by Honest Mischief April 9 for breeder William Butler.

Redesdale, a 9-year-old son of Speightstown out of the graded stakes-winning Danzig mare Harpia, stands for $2,500 LFSN at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs. He sired 47 foals in his first crop, according to statistics from The Jockey Club’s Report of Live Foals for 2020.

Fillies commanded nine of the top 10 highest prices during Tuesday’s opening session, including the Redesdale filly and Hip 209, a New York-bred daughter of Overanalyze named Nancylovestheduke that sold for $130,000.

Hidden Brook, agent, purchased Nancylovestheduke, who is out of the Indian Charlie mare Peace Queen. Bred by James G. Doyle, foaled at Doyle Farm in Schuylerville and consigned by Jesse Hoppel’s Coastal Equine LLC, agent, the filly is a half-sister to New York-bred stakes-placed winner Tommy the Torch and the placed Shackleford filly Sister Luck. Peace Queen is also the dam of a New York-bred yearling filly by Daddy Long Legs and was bred to Liam’s Map in 2021. Doyle purchased Peace Queen for $10,000 at the 2013 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga fall mixed sale.

OBS reported sales on 23 of the 35 New York-breds through the ring Tuesday for $977,000, an average price of $42,478.

The sale continues with the second of three sessions at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
