A trio of youngsters from the first crop of Bernardini’s dual Grade I winning son Stay Thirsty made a good impression during Book One of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale this week.
They sold for an average $206,667 with the top seller a colt from Rhythm and Rhyme that made $250,000 for Dromoland Farm to the bid of Stephen Carr.
The stylish colt is from a full sister to Grade I winner Magnificent Style.
Not far behind was a lovely filly from Grade II winner Higher World that made $200,000 for Cara Bloodstock when bought by Niall Brennan as agent for Marc Keller.
Stay Thirsty has some 38 yearlings catalogued in the remainder of the sale which continues Friday.
