Miss Temple City Brings $2.5 Million For Undisclosed Buyer, To Stay Stateside

Fasig-Tipton launched its single-session November Sale of breeding stock Monday night to a flurry of seven-figure pricetags, which are detailed below.

  • Nickname, a daughter of Scat Daddy who retires as a Grade 1 winner, brought $3 million from agent Kerri Radcliffe. Consigned by Claiborne Farm, agent, Nickname was trained by Richard Mandella for LNJ Foxwoods in her time on-track.
  • Miss Temple City drew $2.5 million from agent Steve Young, who declined to identify the purchaser but noted the mare will stay in the United States. Select Sales, agent for The Club Racing LLC, consigned the daughter of Temple city who has earned more than $1.6 million in earnings. Miss Temple City wrapped her career last month with a sixth in the G1 Shadwell Turf Mile for trainer Graham Motion.

    “She was good her whole life and I hope she’s good in her second career,” said Young. “We had to fight hard to get her but I’m glad we got her. She won against colts, she won against older horses, she was great over in Europe, she’s a Dynaformer line horse who won going five and a half furlongs — she’s a very rare horse.”

  • Mesa Fresca, dam of Grade 1 winner Harmonize, brought $2 million midway through the night. Brookdale Sales, agent for Jack Swain, consigned the Sky Mesa daughter, who was presented in foal to commercially-popular stallion War Front.
  • Earlier, Land Over Sea kicked off the broodmare portion of the session with a bang, dropping the hammer at $1.3 million to Shadai Farm.The half sister to War Story sold in foal to Nyquist, and boasts a runner-up effort in the 2016 Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks, as well as a win in the G2 Fair Grounds Oaks from the Doug O’Neill barn. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales, the daughter of Bellamy Road raced under Reddam Racing’s silks.

Two weanlings also topped seven figures within the first two hours of the auction.

  • The first was Hip 21, a Street Sense filly who raised $1 million from Reynolds Bell, acting agent for Alpha Delta. The full sister to Grade 1 Las Virgenes winner Callback was consigned by Paramount Sales.
  • Later in the sale, an American Pharoah weanling consigned as Hip 46 also brought $1 million for consignor Eaton Sales. Emmanuel de Seroux signed the ticket on behalf of Grand Farm of Japan. The filly is out of Untouched Talent, making her a half sister to graded stakes winner and sire Bodemeister.

“This is an outstanding catalog from top to bottom – there is depth, diversity, and quality,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning in advance of the sale.

Quite possibly the two most anticipated horses to go through the ring Monday will be two-time champions Songbird (Hip 120) and Tepin (Hip 130). Several fillies and mares that competed in the Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar will also be sold, including Zipessa (Hip 139) and Dacita (Hip 162).
