The second session of the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale produced another big result for Scat Daddy with a colt from Miss Dolce fetching $600,000.

Consigned for sale by Hurstland Farm, the colt was bought by Roy and Gretchen Jackson’s Lael Stable and is the second foal of stakes-placed Unbridled’s Song mare Miss Dolce.

He exceeded the expectations of his breeder and consignor in the ring selling for more than double what they had thought.

“I just thought his page might be a little light compared to some of the other ones that were in there,” said Alfred Nuckols, whose Hurstland Farm consigned the colt on behalf of Tommy Town Thoroughbreds.

“Once we got up here, though, we had a lot of lookers. I talked to [General Manager] Mike Allen at Tommy Town and we talked to Tom [Stull] and we thought we would maybe put a $149,000-150,000 reserve on him and hope we would get $200,000 or $250,000. Then today, I thought we’ve had a lot more looks, maybe $300,000 or $325,000. So I was very excited. He sold very well.”

Scat Daddy is enjoying a hot run on the track and is currently the leading North American sire of individual two year-old winners.

He had a super successful sale at Saratoga with six yearlings offered and all sold at average $450,000!
