The Bradley Thoroughbreds Pinhook Venture purchased three fillies from the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling Sale and two colts from the Fasig-Tipton New York Bred Yearling Sale. This brings the Venture’s total yearlings to 8 colts and 6 fillies. Below is a picture of each yearling purchased last week and their pedigree.
2012 filly by BLAME out of EHRU- Purchased for $170,000. This is a very athletic filly with a great walk by the champion and freshmen sire Blame. Pedigree
2012 filly by BLAME out of GARDEN DISTRICT – Purchased for $165,000. After purchasing Hip #46 it was decided having two nice “book end” Blame fillies wouldn’t be a bad idea. This filly has a beautiful top line and is out of the G3 Debutante Stakes winner Garden District. Pedigree
2012 filly by SMART STRIKE out of LUNA VEGA – Purchased privately. This is a beautiful filly by two time leading sire Smart Strike out of G2 winner Luna Vega. When Bradley Thoroughbreds and partner Eddie Woods saw that she failed to meet her reserve it was an obvious decision to make an offer on this well bred filly. She is a great addition to the yearling roster! Pedigree
2012 colt by MINESHAFT out of DEPUTY DEAR- Purchased for $75,000. This colt is full of class and has the size and scope to be a very nice two year old prospect. Pedigree
2012 colt by HENNY HUGHES out of GIGGLY – Purchased for $90,000. The New York Bred Sale was very strong and BT did not feel this colt would fall in the right price range. However when the hammer fell at $90,000 it was a relief. He looks to have a lot of speed! Pedigree
Only twenty four days until the Keeneland September Sale is here. The Venture hopes to purchase a total of twenty to twenty five Yearlings this year and September is always a big shopping month. Check back for updates on next months purchases.
