A filly from the first crop of grade II winner Congrats was purchased by Thomas M. McGreevy, as agent for Rick Porter’s Fox Hill Farm, for $150,000 during the opening minutes of the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July yearling sale in Lexington July 20.
Produced from the unraced Personal Hope mare Saramy, the filly is a half-sister to stakes winner Babaganush (by Capture the Gold) and stakes-placed Springs Road (by Repent ). Bred in Kentucky by Cloverleaf Farms II, the filly was consigned by John Sikura’s Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency, agent. Hill ‘n’ Dale had purchased the filly for $70,000 at the 2008 Keeneland November sale.
Congrats , who earned $998,960, won the San Pasqual (gr. II). He stands at Vinery in Summerfield, Florida, where his 2009 fee was $10,000.
The sale has sessions on July 20 and 21.
