A yearling filly from the second crop of undefeated Champion 2yo Shanghai Bobby topped the OBS Winter Mixed Sale when selling for $110,000. The daughter of stakes-placed Yankee Victoria was purchased by Bill Heiligbrodt of East Hickman Bloodstock and he commented “I really thought she was the best in the sale and I guess others agreed. I’ve been trying to buy a Shanghai Bobby, and if they run the way they look, they are going to be good”.
Shanghai Bobby’s first crop have just turned two and sold very well as yearlings last year with prices of $575,000, $400,000, $380,000, $310,000 etc. Francis Vanlangendonck of the Summerfield Agency which consigned the sale topper is already a fan of the sire. “There are a lot of good reports about Shanghai Bobby and the rumor is that he has some of the best 2-year-olds in town”.
