Munnings in Demand at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic
Munnings only had three juveniles go through the ring on Monday at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds In Training Sale but two of those landed in the top six prices of the session.
Selling for the fourth highest price of Monday’s session was the $460,000 colt purchased by Kerri Radcliffe for Lady Sheila Stable. Consigned by Wavertree Stables and breezing a bullet :10.0 last week, the Pennsylvania-bred is out of the winning Medaglia d’Oro mare Tweet.
Bred by Equivine Farm, his dam has three winners from three to race. A four-time winner herself, Tweet is out of the multiple stakes winning Courtly Kathy. That mare is one of three stakes winners for her own stakes winning dam Courtly Native.
“We had our eye on him from the day he breezed,” Radcliffe told Thoroughbred Daily News. “After he breezed, they couldn't pull him up. And Munnings is flying right now.”Munnings' second highest price was a $380,000 colt sold to JAS from Cary Frommer, who breezed in :10.1 during the under tack show. The colt is out of a half-sister to stakes winners Midnight Soiree, Ciguaraya, and Silver Time, in addition to the stakes-placed dam of stakes winners Holiday Soiree and Marquee Prince.
Bred by Robert Schaedle, the colt was purchased last September for $120,000.
The sire of nine stakes winners in 2021, Munnings sits in the third spot on the General Sires list by stakes winners, second by number of winners, and fifth by stakes horses. Munnings’ juveniles have been in high demand during the 2-year-old sales, bringing $550,000, $460,000, $450,000, $425,000, ect.
