One of Top Offerings Withdrawn From Saratoga Sale

A Storm Cat colt produced from the champion mare Sky Beauty (by Blushing Groom) has been withdrawn from the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling sale.

The colt, scheduled to sell during Tuesday's first session of the three-day auction in Saratoga Springs, New York, was taken out of the sale because the owner decided to retain the colt, according to Reiley McDonald, partner in Eaton Sales, which consigned the yearling.

In addition to being produced from a champion mare who won the Filly Triple Crown, the colt's second dam was multiple grade I winner Maplejinsky and his third was champion Gold Beauty.

The colt was bred in Kentucky by the Pacelco S. A.
