Hip 766, a daughter of Munnings out of the winning Tizway mare Tizsomethingroyal, led the way Thursday on a bid of $170,000 ffrom Gary and Janet Anderson.

Bred by Triumphant Trio, foaled at Edition Farm in Hyde Park and consigned by Pick View LLC, agent, the filly originally sold to Stock Thoroughbreds for $130,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga New York-bred yearling sale.
