Riding the crest of a wave on the track and in the sale ring, Scat Daddy provided the highest priced colt at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton July Select Yearling Sale in Kentucky on Thursday.

Consigned for sale by Indian Creek as agent the colt from Irish stakes-winner Starbourne fetched $385,000 to the bid of Jim Crupi’s Newcastle Farm.

“We loved this horse,” Crupi said.

“He has a good walk and has a pedigree to be a stallion. He will probably go on to the 2-year-old sales. He’s very correct. He vetted perfectly, good throat, good x-rays, you can’t ask for much more than that.”

Closely related to a recent Group I winner in Australia in ATC Australian Oaks winner Gust of Wind, the colt was a successful pinhook having been bought for $90,000 at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale by Florent Couturier’s Redmon Farm.

“Last year, I had only one colt and the others were fillies,” Couturier said.

“I needed a buddy for my colt, so I decided to pick up a colt at the sales and I found this one. I liked his development, because he was already very well-developed as a weanling. I liked the sire, he was correct and he was in my price range.”

Couturier was pleasantly surprised with the final result.

“I knew that he would do well because he’s a nice-looking horse and Scat Daddy is very hot these days, so I knew he would sell well, but I didn’t think he’d bring that price!”

Scat Daddy also had a filly from Cover Girl Elle sell for $300,000 to the bid of Glen Hill Farm.
