Pleasant Colony colt brought a final bid of $650,000 at Keeneland's 2-year-olds in training sale Tuesday.
With about one hour remaining in Keeneland's April sale of 2-year-olds in training Tuesday, top price of $650,000 had been paid by Emanuel and Laura de Seroux's Narvick International for a Pleasant Colony colt consigned by Ciaran Dunne's Wavertree Stables Inc.

The colt, who worked an eighth of a mile in 10 1/5 seconds during the April 9 preview show, was produced from the winning Cure the Blues mare Patticake Blues, a half-sister to Puerto Rican champion Colonial U.S. (by Pleasant Colony), graded stakes winner Silver Fox (Pleasant Colony), and two other stakes winners.

Three juveniles had fetched the co-second highest price of $400,000.

Eugene Melnyk went to that level to acquire a Silver Hawk--Salty Perfume colt from the Nick de Meric consignment; Centennial Farms was the successful $400,000 bidder on an Unbridled-- Time to Roll colt consigned by Murray Smith, and J. Paul Reddam bid $400,000 for a Boston Harbor--Wayage filly consigned by Jerry Bailey Sales Agency.
