A son of Indian Charlie was the highest-priced horse that had been sold as of 4 p.m. (EDT) during the third and final session of the Fasig-Tipton October yearling sale. Mark Reid of Walnut Green signed the sale ticket, purchasing the bay colt for $250,000 for Charles Zacney in Lexington Oct. 24.
The yearling is the second live foal out of the High Yield mare Diamondsareforesta, who finished second once in two career races. His second dam is grade II winner Foresta (by Alydar). Her offspring included the winner Fordyce (by Cox's Ridge), who produced grade II winner Victory U. S. A. (by Victory Gallop).
Tony Holmes and Tom VanMeter bred the colt in Kentucky. Woods Edge Farm consigned the yearling to the Fasig-Tipton October auction.
Last year, Walnut Hill Stables bought the colt, as a weanling, for $210,000 from VanMeter Sales, agent, at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale. He was a $170,000 buy-back when consigned by Woods Edge to this year's Keeneland September yearling auction.
