You’re welcome! I never know if anyone is very interested in the sale or if I am typing into the ether… :upside_down_face:

I enjoy watching for a while. Love the big-priced ones, but feel sorry for the people of the ones that go for less money, the ones that don’t or barely make the stud fee. And I wonder why a yearling with what seems like lovely breeding does not sell–probably the vet report, which we don’t see, of course, or the reserve was too high.

I’m a little perplexed at the sales topper. Is it at all possible that his front end will catch up with his back end? Seems like a rather extreme growth spurt. Someone with more experience please educate me.

Yearlings go through growth spurts. His front end will likely catch up to his hind. His breeding and his conformation were worth 1.1M to someone.

Stonestreet has an excellent broodmare band and a reputation for top notch management of their mares and foals. When they sell a colt it is usually very well received.

I’d expect #123 will be expensive (I’m often wrong) and he’s rump high as well, though he’s an April foal and that could affect his price. We’ll see. :slightly_smiling_face:

Both colts look better walking than they do standing still.

#129 is quite the mature looking yearling. Tapit and Tiznow showing themselves? https://vimeo.com/851493906

#135 colt should sell well. Into Mischief x Rachel’s Valentina from Stonestreet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kaA6X6srFI

Quite a few fancy pedigrees in this second session. Curlin x Beholder colt among them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4LgtIGH75M another April foal.

Unable to keep tabs/watch the sale.
Did the Beholder Colt go through yet?
