$700,000 Filly Kicks Off 2YO Sales for Munnings

After another banner season on the track last year, Munnings saw his current crop of juveniles sell well at the OBS March 2-Year-Olds In Training Sale this week, led by a $700,000 filly.

Sold as Hip 26 to Woodford Thoroughbred, she was the most expensive filly of the first session and fourth most expensive filly of the sale. It was the second time she had sold after Ryston Stable purchased her from Indian Creek at last year’s Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Bred by Hubert Vester and offered this time around by Niall Brennan Stables, she breezed in :9.4 at last week’s Under Tack Show.

The filly is out of the Bernardini mare Ansaam, who is a half-sister to Grade I winner Denman’s Call and Grade III-placed Torosay. Their winning dam is a half-sister to another Grade I winner in Evening Jewel and the stakes winning Deep Jewelry.

Evening Jewel also produced the stakes placed Bernadiva with two other sisters producing four stakes performers between them.

Ansaam was bred to Uncle Mo last year.

Resolute Bloodstock was the buyer of the $500,000 Racing Withthemoon, who had breezed in :20.2 – the second fastest quarter-mile breeze of the Under Tack Show.

Bred in Florida by Peter Mirabelli, Racing Withthemoon is out of a Medaglia d’Oro half-sister to the stakes winning Cassidy’s Pride and six other winners out of Grade III winner Cassidy. Three of the four dams on the filly’s page have produced at least one stakes winner with two also producing stakes producers.

Munnings also saw his juveniles at the sale bring $300,000, $250,000, etc. Munnings is the sire of five stakes performers in 2024 with the group including two stakes winners.
