Hip No. 2, a filly by Mr. Greeley–Fashion Cat, by Forest Wildcat. Consigned by Sequel Bloodstock, agent.

“She’s a real pretty Mr. Greeley filly that has a lot of speed,” said Sequel’s Becky Thomas of this chestnut juvenile whose winning dam is a half sister to grade I winner Peace Rules (by Jules) and stakes winner Wild Fashion (by Once Wild). This filly worked an eighth of a mile in :10 2/5 during the auction’s under tack show.

Hip No. 6, a filly by Street Boss  –Firebaby, by Marquetry. Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables, agent.

“She is by a ‘buzz’ sire, and she’s a big, pretty filly that has been forward from day one,” said Brennan of this chestnut juvenile, who is a member of her sire’s first crop and whose winning dam is a half sister to grade I winner Got Koko (by Signal Tap). “She is very athletic, and she is a tall and has a lot of scope to her. Many people have made the comment that she is the tallest Street Boss   that they’ve seen. She’s very quick naturally (able to work an eighth in :10 1/5) and she’s very sound.”

Hip No. 15, a filly by Stormy Atlantic  –Frosty Promise, by Frosty the Snowman. Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables, agent.

“I love her; she breezed on the dirt solidly (going an eighth in :10 3/5), but it’s obvious that she’s got a tremendous turf pedigree,” said Brennan of this bay juvenile, which is a full sister to grade II winner Icy Atlantic and a half sister to grade III winner Wild Promises (by Wild Event). “She has tons of class,” Brennan added.

Hip No. 26, a colt by Malibu Moon  –Hello Lucky, by Lucky Lionel. Consigned by de Meric Sales, agent.

“He’s been a really nice colt and he never missed a beat at home,” said Tristan de Meric of this dark bay or brown juvenile, which is out of a stakes winner. “He’s a straightforward, uncomplicated horse. He had a nice breeze (covering an eighth in :10 2/5) and he galloped out strong.”

Hip No. 38, a filly by Exchange Rate  –Inspirational, by Lord At War. Consigned by Stephens Thoroughbreds, agent for Vision Racing and Sales.

“She worked in the last set; she went (an eighth in) :10 1/5 and galloped out strong,” said John Stephens of this gray or roan juvenile, which is a half sister to Canadian grade II winner The Niagara Queen (by Langfuhr  ). “She is a beautiful filly on the end of the shank; she shows herself well.”

Hip No. 40, a colt by Bernardini  –Jolie Boutique, by Northern Jove. Consigned by Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds, agent.

“He’s a Derby horse; that’s what I think,” said Dean De Renzo of this bay juvenile, which is a half brother to stakes winner Millennium Storm (by Future Storm). “He’s amazing. His stride is huge and he has a turn of foot (working an eighth in :10 1/5).”

Hip No. 41, a colt by Medaglia d'Oro  –J’ray, by Distant View. Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables, agent.

“He is the first foal out of (grade III winner) J’ray, who earned nearly a million dollars and was a tremendous mare,” said Brennan of this dark bay or brown juvenile. “He’s a big horse with scope; he’s the kind of horse that people should be looking for. He’s a two-turn horse and he went beautiful on the track. It (the time) was :10 4/5, but it was a lovely breeze. And he’s a New York-bred, which certainly doesn’t hurt.”

Hip No. 45, Iroquois Girl, a filly by Indian Charlie–Lake Huron, by Salt Lake. Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables, agent.

“She’s a gorgeous, big filly,” said Brennan of this dark bay or brown juvenile, which is a half sister to grade III winner Salty Strike (by Smart Strike  ) and stakes winner Salty Response (by Cozzene). “She’s out of a Salt Lake mare and you can see some of that in her, that substance.

Hip No. 51, a colt by Tapit  –Liberty Flag, by Kingmambo. Consigned by Stephens Thoroughbreds, agent.

“He’s probably one of the prettiest Tapits you’ll ever see,” said John Stephens of this bay juvenile whose winning dam is a half sister to stakes winner Gold Streamer (by Forty Niner). “He’s well-balanced and he’s got a good shoulder and a good hip. He moved really well on the track (while covering an eighth in :10 3/5) and had a great gallop out. He’s very popular.”

Hip No. 53, a colt by Dixie Union–Lite Twilight, by Twilight Agenda. Consigned by Parrish Farms, agent.

“He’s a very nice horse; he’s very mature for being a May foal,” said G.W. Parrish of this bay juvenile, which is out of a stakes winner. “He is a really good mover with a good mind and he got over the track well (while working an eighth in :10 2/5).”

Hip No. 56, a colt by Hard Spun  –Lucky Lavender Gal, by Carson City. Consigned by Eddie Woods, agent.

Hip No. 64, a colt by Any Given Saturday–Moravia, by A.P. Indy. Consigned by Off The Hook, agent.

Hip No. 67, a colt by Lion Heart–Obligation North, by Valley Crossing. Consigned by Eddie Woods, agent.

“He’s like the good Lion Hearts; he’s got a bit of leg and he’s got a bit of length to him,” said Woods of this bay juvenile, whose winning dam is a half sister to grade III winner Weigelia   (by Safely's Mark). “The better ones that we’ve had are that way. He’s a smashing horse (that worked an eighth in the co-fastest time of :10).”

Hip No. 87, a filly by Majestic Warrior  –Road to Mandalay, by Sea of Secrets. Consigned by Pike Racing, agent.

Hip No. 93, a colt by Tale of the Cat  –Saratoga Drive, by Siphon. Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables, agent.

He did it in hand, really. He is a very sound horse and shows so much poise.”

Hip No. 96, a colt by Distorted Humor  –Secret Thyme, by Storm Cat. Consigned by Lynne Boutte, agent.

“He’s been an exciting colt since he came to us,” said Boutte of this chestnut juvenile, whose dam is a half sister to grade I winner Forest Secrets (by Forest Wildcat) and grade III winner Rumor Has It (by Awesome Again  ). “He’s done everything right. He loves to train. He comes into the barn and eats up and then takes a nap. He does all the things that you would like a horse to do. He’s gorgeous. You stand him out there and he looks like a man instead of a 2-year-old.”

Hip No. 97, a colt by Malibu Moon  –Seek to Soar, by Seeking the Gold. Consigned by Pike Racing, agent.

“I’ve loved him from the first day I laid eyes on him,” said Pike Racing’s Al Pike of this bay juvenile, which worked an eighth in :10 2/5 and whose winning dam is a half sister to stakes winner Much Rejoicing(by Distorted Humor  ). “He’s a beautiful horse with beautiful balance.

She really covers the ground.”

Hip No. 119, a filly by Indian Charlie–Trusty Lady, by Deputy Minister. Consigned by Eddie Woods, agent.

“She has always been a nice filly,” said Woods of this dark bay or brown juvenile, whose second dam, Classy Kim (by Silent Screen), was a grade II winner. “She trained very well and she worked good (covering an eighth in :10 2/5). She’s getting penalized a little bit by the few really fast horses, which is a great mistake, but that’s the way it goes around here. We’ve always liked her quite a lot.”

Hip No. 123, a colt by Street Boss  –Varnish, by Cox's Ridge. Consigned by Eddie Woods, agent.

“He’s a really nice horse; he’s gorgeous in every way a horse should be gorgeous,” said Woods of this bay juvenile, which worked an eighth in :10 1/5 and is a half brother to stakes winner Swingforthefences (by Boston Harbor). “He’s got a beautiful hip, he’s correct, and he’s very manly about stuff without being a rank colt.” This colt is a member of his sire’s first crop.

He’s done nothing but look like a racehorse from the day we broke him.”

Hip No. 146, a colt by Candy Ride  –Christina Lake, by Meadowlake. Consigned by Eddie Woods, agent.

“He’s by one of the best stallions in the country and he’s a very consistent and nice horse (that worked an eighth in :10 2/5),” said Woods of this dark bay or brown juvenile, who is his winning dam’s first foal and whose second dam was a stakes winner. “His biggest concern is where his next meal is coming from.”

Hip No. 156, Tancred, a colt by Majestic Warrior  –Darling Monique, by El Corredor  . Consigned by Scanlon Training Center, agent.

“He is a big, ‘scopy,’ flashy horse,” said Scanlon Training Center’s David Scanlon of this bay juvenile, which worked an eighth in :10 3/5. “He has a real nice, sexy walk. He’s been kind of a star all year. He’s the kind of horse that you say as he trains, ‘I could see this horse next spring getting ready for the classics.’ He’s a two-turn horse. He’s been galloping horses into the ground at the farm.”

Hip No. 160, a filly by Malibu Moon  –Disco Darlin’, by Citidancer. Consigned by Classic Bloodstock, agent.

“She’s a registered Pennsylvania-bred that has done everything right,” said Classic’s Danzel Brendemuehl of this chestnut filly whose winning, stakes-placed dam is a half sister to stakes winner Sir Echo (by Heart). “She breezed absolutely effortlessly (while covering an eighth in :10 2/5) and galloped out very strong.

Hip No. 162, a Medaglia d'Oro  –Drifa, by Tabasco Cat. Consigned by Pike Racing, agent.

“I love his pedigree; he’s a Tale of the Cat from a good Darby Dan (Farm) foundation family,” said Scanlon Training Center’s David Scanlon of this bay juvenile, which is out of a stakes winner and is a half brother to stakes winner Awesome Bet (by Awesome Again  ). “He is fast (able to go an eighth in :10 1/5) and mature, and he has a great disposition and constitution. He checks all the boxes.”
