Four New York-breds sold for six figures during the first two books of the Keeneland September yearling sale, which wrapped up the fourth session Thursday in Lexington.

Hip 772, a colt by Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, sold for $150,000 early in the session to become the fourth six-figure New York-bred so far at the September sale. Oracle Bloodstock, agent, purchased the colt out of the Bernardini mare Possessive.

A half-sister to Grade 2 winner and young sire Klimt, Possessive is the dam of the 3-year-old winning Quality Road colt Yono and the 2-year-old New York-bred Uncle Mo ridgling Uncle Marty, who finished second in his second start on Closing Day at Saratoga.

Hip 772 was bred by Pine Ridge Stables LTD and consigned by Paramount Sales, agent.

Six of the eight New York-breds through the ring through Thursday’s session have sold for $1,220,000, including a private sale, for an average price of $203,333 and median price of $167,500.

After a dark day Friday, the September sale returns with Book 3 and the fifth session at 10 a.m. Saturday.
