Four Echo Town Juveniles Offered at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic

Four juveniles from Grade I winner Echo Town’s first crop are on offer next week at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-Year-Olds In Training Sale with juveniles offered each day.

The first through the ring comes 94 hips into the sale when Little Farm Equine offers a colt out of three-time winner Inglorious Song.

That mare has produced two winners from three to race with her third being placed last year as a juvenile. Inglorious Song is one of four winners out of the multiple stakes winner and multiple Grade II-placed Singalong.

Bred by Barak Farm and Dinos Thoroughbred in Maryland, the colt has seen his four dams on the page produce 19 winners between them. Among those winners are Grade II winner and multiple Grade I-placed Hawksmoor, Gleneagles' Group II winner Royal Dornoch and multiple other stakes performers.

Hailing from the family of champion and Grade I Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense comes Hip 239 out of Pure Ride.

Bred by Chesapeake Farm and Three Times A Charm, the Tom McCrocklin offering is a half-brother to three winners with one having increased earnings since the catalog was released. A half-sister to the multiple stakes placed El Grande Seville, Pure Ride is a granddaughter of stakes winner Majestic Legend.

Majestic Legend produced the multiple stakes winner Binalegend, who went on to produce stakes performers and stakes producers in the breeding shed, and four-time winner Bedazzle.

Bedazzle is the dam of Street Sense and stakes winner Elusive Sparkle. Elusive Sparkle followed in her family’s footsteps as the dam of stakes winner Camdus while one of her daughters is the dam of this year’s Grade III Lexington Stakes winner Encino.

The second day of the sale includes Hip 242 from Thorostock, the first foal out of Queen of Aces bred by Southern Comfort Farm.

That mare is a half-sister to two stakes performers out of Queen Of Empire, a half-sister to the stakes winning Mobil Solution and La Piba. Another half-sister is the dam of the Grade II winner West Coast Belle. This colt’s fourth dam is the four-time Grade I winner Dispute, who sees 16 stakes winners and eight other stakes performers, led by Grade I winners Gear Up and Nanda Dea.

Paul Sharp sends Hip 558 through the ring on the second day, an Echo Town half-sister to the Grade III-placed Glacial.

Bred by Mike Rutherford, the filly was a $150,000 Fasig-Tipton October purchase last year before coming here. Also a half-sister to the dam of Mendelssohn’s multiple stakes winner and Grade III-placed Opus Forty Two, she is out of Lion Heart mare Country Cafe.

Country Cafe is a full sister to Grade III winner Heart Ashley and half-sister to Grade I winner Cupid and Grade III winner Ashley’s Kitty. After he racing career, Heart Ashley produced multiple graded stakes winner Fiano Romano and the Group III-placed dam of Grade II winner Ain’t Easy.

Another one of Country Cafe’s half-sisters produced the stakes-placed dam of Grade II winner Kathleen O – who most recently won the Serena’s Song Stakes last week - and granddam of Grade III winner and Grade I-placed V V’s Dream.

The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-Year-Olds In Training Sale takes place on May 20 and 21 with each session starting at 11am.
