A yearling colt by Flameaway and a yearling filly from the first crop of New York-based stallion Galilean topped the group of New York-bred offerings during the open session of the Ocala Breeders Sales Co.’s winter mixed sale Wednesday.

Grade One Investments LLC went to $40,000 to purchase Hip 621, the Flameaway colt named Candle Ina Wind, out of Francis and Barbara Vanlangendonck’s Summerfield consignment.

Bred by Diane Boyken and foaled at Rockridge Stud in Hudson, the colt is out of the winning Trust N Luck mare Curious Luck and a half-brother to three winners including eight-time winner and $145,122-earning New York-bred Analyze Your Luck.

Gayle Woods went to $16,000 to purchase Hip 467, a daughter of Galilean out of the Mr. Greeley mare Mme Belle Brezing.

Bred by and foaled at Hidden Lake Farm in Stillwater and consigned by Mount Royal Sales LLC, agent, the filly is the seventh foal out of Mme Belle Breezing, who is the dam of New York-bred winners Lucky Belle and Comeback P.

Galilean, an 8-year-old son of Uncle Mo out of the El Prado mare Fresia, stands for $3,500 at Hidden Lake Farm in Stillwater. A six-time stakes winner who earned $592,522, Galilean also finished third in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes in 2019 at Oaklawn Park.

The open session wrapped up the two-day OBS winter sale, which also saw Hip 7, a yearling colt by Majestic Warrior’s son Leinster out of the Grand Reward mare Greatest Reward, sell for $43,000.

Machmer Hall purchased the colt, who was bred by Amy Dunne and Beth Bayer and consigned by Beth Bayer, agent. Foaled at Sequel New York in Hudson, the colt is a half-brother to three-time winner and $77,704-earner Sunny San Leon and the 2-year-old Catalina Cruiser filly Beth Almighty.
