A daughter of Collected sold for $150,000 and a filly by New York-based sire Bustin Stones brought $75,000 to highlight the final day of the OBS June sale of 2-year-olds in training and horses of racing age Thursday in Ocala.

Hip 1046, the filly by Collected out of the Union Rags mare Kathy’s Chance, was purchased by Hall of Fame football coach Bill Parcells’ August Dawn Farm to lead the way in the session for New York-breds and also equaled the highest price for a New York-bred over the three-day auction. Consigned by Centofanti Thoroughbreds, agent, the filly breezed an eighth in :10 during presale workouts.

Bred by Eaton & Thorne, Inc., the filly is the third foal out of Kathy’s Chance. Jonathan Thorne’s Thorndale Farm purchased Kathy’s Chance carrying the Collected filly in utero for $57,000 at the 2019 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Centofanti Thoroughbreds purchased the filly for $30,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga New York-bred yearling sale.

The $150,000 hammer price equaled that paid by Clay Scherer, agent, for Hip 123, a daughter of McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds’ freshman sire Redesdale, during the sale’s opening session Tuesday. Those two fillies were among the five New York-breds that sold for six figures.

Strong demand for New York-breds held up over the three sessions and OBS reported sales on 77 of the 92 offered for a total of $2,957,700, an average price of $38,412.

Hip 843, a daughter of Bustin Stones, brought the sale’s second highest price for a New York-bred by a stallion based in the Empire State. The Wycoff family’s Three Diamonds Farm LLC went to $75,000 for the filly out of the unraced E Dubai mare E. Queen. Consigned by Silvestre Chavez Thoroughbreds, agent, she breezed an eighth in :10 before the sale.

Bustin Stones stands for $2,500 at Waldorf Farm in North Chatham.

Bred by and foaled at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds, LLC, the filly is the eighth foal out of E. Queen. She’s the dam of six winners from seven New York-bred foals to race, including nine-time winner and $89,150-earner Big Band Benny and five-time winner Black Lightning.
