Mineshaft Colt Tops OBS Day 3 Watch List

The only Mineshaft  yearling in the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s August yearling sale is among the horses to watch during the Aug. 25 final session of the two-day open sale in Ocala, Fla.

Consigned as Hip 695 by JR Racing Stables, the colt was bred in Kentucky by Twin Creeks Farm and is out of the Tiznow  mare Tizfiz, winner of the grade II San Gorgonio Handicap and earner of $410,944. Tizfiz, full sister to grade III winner and $521,040 earner Fury Kapcori, was bought by Twin Creeks for $125,000 out of the 2014 Keeneland November breeding stock sale while carrying the Mineshaft colt in utero.

Two sires who have foals from their first crops hitting the track this year are Biondetti , the sire of a filly consigned as Hip 716 by Woodford Thoroughbreds as agent, and Dialed In , who is represented by Hip 838, a colt from agent Beth Bayer.

The Biondetti filly, bred in Florida by Linda S. Rosenblatt and Emmy Gaffney, is out of the stakes-placed Texas Glitter mare Twiceasbeautiful, a half sister to grade II winner Twice As Bad. Bred in Florida by Bridle Oaks Farm, the Dialed In colt was produced from the winning Notebook mare Book the Devil, granddam of stakes winner Vallery Stripe.

Among the stallions with yearlings from their first crops selling at OBS are Prospective , sire of Hip 752 (Spring Dreams Thoroughbreds consignment); a colt from the family of champion Farda Amiga and Irish Horse of the Year and sire St. Jovite; and Liason, sire of Hip 888, an Oklahoma-bred colt consigned by Stuart Morris, agent.
