The colt, Hip No. 103, is out of Touched (Touch Gold), the dam of grade II winner Indian Firewater (Indian Charlie). The colt, who worked in :10.1/5 during the under tack show, was purchased by Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert on behalf of Charles Chu's Baoma Corp.
"He looks sound and fast," said Baffert." If they're sound and fast you have to buy them. It's tough to buy a good horse. You always want to get them for less. I had his (grade II-winning) half brother Indian Firewater and since he is by Union Rags, maybe I'll get some extra stretch out from him."
