Exciting young sire Shanghai Bobby made a big splash at the 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale on Tuesday when his colt from Coolwind sold for $575,000.
Offered by Blandford Stud and bought by Mayberry Farm, the star colt is a half-brother to Grade III winner Looking Cool from stakes-winning Forest Wildcat mare Coolwind.
He was bred by Padraig Campion, who was delighted with the result.
“This one is a good advertisement for his sire,” he told Bloodhorse Daily.
“He’s got the balance and the class. He’s been shown 90 times a day for four days and he’s still willing, walking without any urging.”
Shanghai Bobby also had a good result with a colt from Disturbingly Hot selling for $250,000.
