Echo Town Paddock

Thirteen for Echo Town at OBS June

A large group of Echo Town juveniles are on offer next week at the OBS June 2-Year-Olds In Training Sale with 13 set to go under the hammer throughout the week.

The first offering comes 220 hips in when AVP Training and Sales sends the Florida-bred Hip 220 through the ring.

Bred by Destiny Oaks of Ocala and breezing in :10.1, the colt out of Street Sailing is a half-brother to two winners from three to race out of three-time winner Street Sailing. That mare is one of five winners for her own dam. That Mizzen Mast mare is a half-sister to two stakes performers from the eight winners out of Purity.

There are stakes producers and stakes winners throughout the page with the family including Grade I winner Moanin and Grade II winner Road to Victory leading the nine named under his first four dams.

Street Sailing is also the dam of a Mo Town yearling filly.

Hip 228 offered by Top Line Sales is another for Echo Town at the sale.

The filly is out of the multiple stakes winning Tiz The Argument, whose two runners have both won at least once. Bred in Kentucky by Charles Giles and Patrick Payne, the filly’s first 10 dams either won at least one stakes or produced a stakes performer.

Under just the four mares on her page are 16 winners from 17 runners with the group led by three stakes winners – including two of her first three dams.

Hip 395 selling with Grade One Investments is a half-brother to seven winners, led by the Grade III winner and Grade I-placed Killybegs Captain and the stakes producing Careless Moment. A five-time winner herself, Careless Moment produced the multiple stakes winning Bossy Moment in the breeding shed.

The trio is out of Holy Bull mare Al Maha, who is far from the only stakes producer in the family. Her stakes winning dam Lost Lode produced stakes winner Find The Treasure and stakes placed Dominica, with that mare going on to produce multiple Grade II winner Pontchatrain.

Named Island Dream Girl and bred by BHMFR LLC, Hip 501 goes through the ring with Paul Sharp as the first foal out of Ghostzapper mare Cantaloupe Island.

Hailing from the same family as her sire, the filly is bred 3 x 3 to Echo Town’s granddam Echo Echo Echo. That mare is the dam of Echo Town’s Grade II winner Letgomyecho and is the granddam of Cantaloupe Island. Echo Town’s dam Letgomyecho also produced champion Echo Zulu and Grade III winner J Boys Echo with five stakes performers produced by the mare overall. That mare’s daughters have also gone on to produce stakes performers.

In addition to her own successes as a stakes producer, Echo Echo Echo is also the matriarch of a family that includes eight stakes winners and 12 other stakes performers.

Best A Luck sends Hip 818 through the ring, a half-sister to the multiple stakes winner Alina and eight other winners from 12 to race out of Lady Heroine.

A successful racemare, Alina did even better in the breeding shed when producing the Grade III winner and dirt and turf Grade I-placed Nemoralia as a broodmare. There are stakes performers scattered throughout the two dams listed on this page with five stakes winners and seven other stakes horses named.

The Columbiana Farm-bred Ocean Rain closes out Echo Town’s offerings at the sale as Hip 965 with Shooting Star Sales.

The filly is out of Namaka, who has one winner and one placed runner from two to race. A daughter of Grade II winner and Grade I-placed Seafree, Namaka is a half-sister to the stakes-placed Interest Fee, who produced the stakes winning Market Analysis. This family sees stakes winners under three of the four dams listed with Grade II winner and multiple Grade I placed Fly Down leading the charge.

From his four to race, Echo Town already has a stakes placed runner in his first winner Three Echoes with two others placing in their own starts.
