A filly from the first crop of Take Charge Indy and a Cape Blanco filly each breezed an eighth-mile in :10, the fastest time at the distance during the May 16 first under tack show in preparation for the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale of 2-year-olds in training.
The daughter of Take Charge Indy, offered as Hip 24 from Ciaran Dunne's Wavertree Stables, as agent, was produced from the winning Johannesburg mare Phi Beta Mom, a full sister to grade 2 stakes winner Teuflesberg.
The filly's female family includes Tale of the Cat , Minardi, and Preach, all group/grade 1 winners, prominent sire Pulpit, and the hard-knocking multiple stakes winner Northcote Road.
The filly was bred in Kentucky by WinStar Farm, MR Capital, Michael Lowenbaum, and Brad Ray. Consigned by Warrendale Sales to last year's Keeneland September yearling sale, the filly was bought by Altamira Stable for $67,000.
Consigned as Hip 87 by Grassroots Training and Sales, the Cape Blanco filly is out of the unraced Cat Thief mare Secret Island. Bred in Kentucky by Parrish Hill Farm and Ashford Stud, the filly's third dam is grade 1 winner Officer's Ball and she's from the family of London Bridge and Big Plant, both grade 3 winners in Japan.
The filly was purchased by Grassroots for $5,000 from the Indian Creek offerings at the Keeneland yearling sale.
At the quarter-mile distance, an Into Mischief filly and an Old Fashioned colt breezed :21 2/5, co-fastest time of the day.
Consigned as Hip 34 by Wes Carter, agent for Carolyn Vogel, the Into Mischief filly is out of the winning Tapit mare Pooh Corner, a family that includes grade 3 winner Katilac Ofthestars and multiple stakes winners Astro Force and Astro Beauty.
Named Hi Old Silver and offered as Hip 109 by Crane Thoroughbreds, agent, the Old Fashioned colt is a half brother to stakes-placed Peej and is out of Silver Lined, a winning Stormy Atlantic mare. Bred in Pennsylvania, the colt's female family includes grade 3 winner Bonnie Rob.
