Malibu Moon Colt Brings $1.3 Million at OBS

Colt is half brother to two stakes winners, including grade II winner Spellbound.

A Malibu Moon  colt who is a half brother to grade II winner Spellbound was purchased by agent Demi O’Byrne for $1.3 million during the March 11 Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s selected sale of 2-year-olds in training.

Consigned by Bobby Dodd, as agent, the colt was produced from the unraced Tale of the Cat  mare Layreebelle, the dam of this year’s La Canada Stakes (gr. II) winner Spellbound and Private Terms Stakes winner Kid Cruz from as many foals of racing age.

Bred in Kentucky by Machmer Hall, the colt was purchased by Grand Oaks for $200,000 from the Select Sales consignment to the 2013 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga August yearling sale.
