Six seasons after One Hot Wish blazed 4 1/2 furlongs in :48.87 at Keeneland, establishing a track record for the distance that still stands, her first foal has followed in her footsteps.
One Hot Wish
- Chestnut Filly
- Born 2005
Team Valor, which privately purchased a 50% interest in Tasha's Miracle after the 2-year-old filly's smart maiden score at Hollywood Park, got an immediate return on its investment when the daughter of Harlan's Holiday overwhelmed the field in the $150,000 Sorrento Stakes (gr. III) at Del Mar Aug. 8.
Led by world record-setter One Hot Wish, three-time winner Carbella, and graded stakes-placed American County, a field of nine is expected for Wednesday's $150,000 Sorrento Stakes (gr. III) for 2-year-old fillies going 6 1/2 furlongs on the Del Mar Polytrack.
Bring the Heat, sire of world-record holder One Hot Wish, is being relocated to Tom and Debi Stull's Tommy Town Thoroughbreds near Santa Ynez, Calif.
A record price for a juvenile filly sold at Keeneland was established during the one-day 2-year-old in training sale April 17 when California billionaire B. Wayne Hughes went to $1.75 million for a daughter of Mineshaft.
One Hot Wish, who established a world record mark for 4 1/2 furlongs, failed to meet her reserve to start off the 2007 Keeneland April 2-year-olds in training sale April 17 at the Central Kentucky auction house.
Keeneland pumped up the promotion of its April sale of 2-year-olds in training last year, and the effort paid off as the auction enjoyed increases in its gross revenue, average price, and median price, which set a sale record. But can Keeneland keep the momentum going Tuesday, when the latest edition of the sale will be held in Central Kentucky?
Robert C. Tanklage and Wesley Ward's One Hot Wish, a 2-year-old filly who posted a world record time of :48.87 for 4 1/2 furlongs in her career racing debut at Keeneland Thursday, will be offered during Keeneland's April juvenile auction Tuesday.
