Practical Joke Filly Tops CTHS Ontario Canadian Premier Yearling Sale

The Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Ontario Division) Canadian Premier Yearling Sale posted gains in gross and average sale price on Wednesday, led by a $180,000 filly by Practical Joke.

Wednesday’s auction saw 158 horses change hands for revenues of $3,144,400 (Canadian), up 12 percent from last year’s sale, when 142 horses brought $2,795,300. The average sale price rose one percent to $19,901 from $19,685, while the median dipped 31 percent to $10,000 after finishing at $14,500 in 2020.

The ticket read “J. Nelson” on the buyer line for the sale-topper, Hip 75, a Practical Joke filly who hammered for $180,000.

The bay filly is the second foal out of the multiple stakes-winning Silent Name mare Silent Treat, hailing from the family of Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint winner Wavell Avenue.

Bred in Ontario by Stablemates, the filly was consigned by Shannondoe Farm.

The auction’s most expensive colt was a son of Silent Name who sold to William and Anne Scott for $160,000.

Offered as Hip 94, the bay colt is out of the stakes-placed City Zip mare Sweet Bama Breeze, whose five foals to race are all winners, including stakes winner Will She, and stakes-placed Sweet Grass Creek and Sweet Crimson. Graded stakes-placed runners Bushetta Buck and Railroad are in the Ontario-bred’s extended family.

Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency consigned the colt, as agent.
