Echo Town OBS March Offerings Led by $130,000 Colt

A colt from the first crop of Grade I winner Echo Town topped his sire’s offerings at this week’s OBS March 2-Year-Olds In Training Sale when L & N Racing went to $130,000 to acquire him from the de Meric Sales consignment.

The first through the ring for Echo Town at the sale, the Vossfeld Bloodstock-bred is a half-brother to four winners. That group is out of Bayou Miss, who won multiple races in her career as one of eight winners out of stakes winner and Grade III-paced Jaramar Rain.

During her broodmare career, Jaramar Rain produced the multiple Grade II-placed Imperial Council and the stakes placed duo of Minesave and Monopolize with two of her daughters producing stakes performers as well.

An Indiana-bred out of Miss Sephora sold for $120,000 to McMahon and Hill Bloodstock as agent for Radley Equine during the second session of the sale.

Consigned by Craig Wheeler, the filly is the first foal out of Miss Sephora, a First Samurai half-sister to Grade III winner Pataky Kid and stakes placed Armour Plate.

Stakes form is consistent throughout the page with her granddam one of five stakes producers out of stakes winner and Grade III-placed Prominent Feather. Prominent Feather’s daughters produced six stakes performers with that group led by Gambler’s Justice, Wild Remarks, and Dirty Dangle.

Miss Sephora is a fifth-generation stakes producer with her own third dam the dam of Grade II winner and successful broodmare Silverbulletday.

Echo Town’s first 2-year-olds sold for $130,000, $120,000, $110,000, etc. at this sale with six of his eight offered finding buyers.
