Run Away And Hide Filly Leads Minnesota Yearling Sale

The Minnesota Thoroughbred Association Yearling Sale posted across-the-board gains on Sunday, topped off by a $46,000 filly by Run Away and Hide.

Twenty eight Minnesota-bred yearlings sold during this year’s auction for revenues of $383,500, marking a 6.5 percent increase from the 2020 renewal, when 34 horses sold for $359,800.

The average sale price rose 40 percent to $13,696 from $9,724, while the median of $9,000 was a 125 percent improvement from last year’s figure of $4,000. The buyback rate finished at 22 percent, compared with 33 percent the previous year.

The partnership of John Mentz, Jeff Larson, and Hugh Robertson secured the sale-topper, a $46,000 filly by Run Away and Hide named Checkcashingconnie.

Offered as Hip 32, Checkcashingconnie is out of stakes-winning Dazzling Falls mare Sheso Dazzling, who is the dam of two winners. Multiple Peruvian Group 1 winner Fletcher is in her extended family.

Bred in Minnesota, the filly was consigned by Mary and Eric Von Seggern, and Kurt and Melanie Kindschuh.

Dove Hill Farm was the auction’s leading consignor, with four horses sold for a combined $80,000.

Leading the way among the Dove Hill horses was Hip 34, a Cinco Charlie gelding who sold to Barry Butzow for $35,000. The gelding, out of the Added Edge mare Smarty Prance, was consigned as agent for Richard Bremer and Cheryl Sprick.

Xtreme Racing Stables was the sale’s top buyer, with three purchases totaling $105,000. A pair of $40,000 purchases led the way: Hip 10, a filly by Danza, and Hip 14, a Cupid filly named Cupids Crush.
