McElroy, Ward Strike for Into Mischief Filly

Bloodstock agent Ben McElroy, sitting with trainer Wesley Ward, made the top session final bid of $425,000 to get a dirty game of Into Mischief (hip 336) at the first session of the October Fasig-Tipton sale on Monday. The aspirational winner ran out of stake Velvet Mood (Lonhro {Aus}) and was bred by Alpha Delta Stables, which purchased the mare along with its in-utero foal for $1 million at the monthly sale. 11 2020 by Fasig-Tipton. She was consigned by Mill Ridge Sales.

“She’s a great male, whether it’s a pony or a cow,” McElroy said. “She fits our role model for getting them out early with Wesley and she looks like she could be turf or dirt, or even synthetic. She is a very kind person. For me, she is the one who chooses the filling today. We’d be happy to get her for that price and the fingers delivered from here on out. “

McElroy said he hopes to find a partner for the desire.

“We’re going to put the partnership together and see how it goes,” he said. “That’s good money for a horse, but for that king, I think we’ve done well.”

McElroy signed a four-year contract on Monday and three was purchased with Ward. Keeping busy throughout this much-anticipated global sales season this fall, he also signed eight aspirants at Keeneland’s September sale and three aspirants at Keeneland’s September sale. Goff Orby.

“It was really hard to get what I wanted in Keeneland,” McElroy said. “In Europe, I think we have some really nice horses. Today we have four points and we are really happy with what we got. These discounts are always getting better day by day, so hopefully on Thursday these will be good value.”

The Greens keep picking their points

The Green family’s DJ Stable, which purchased the coin during OBS’s October sale earlier this month, continued its avid purchase at Fasig-Tipton on Monday, acquiring an Into Mischief pony (hip 80) for $400,000, it only takes a few minutes to buy a son of Gunman (hip 74) for $200,000.

“We were just trying to find a competitive advantage,” explains Len Green. “There are people who have more money, so the idea is to try to find the location and then buy them correctly. Because someone told me a long time ago, if you run out of money, they will also run out of horses.”

Green admits the team is looking for horses that may not attract the attention of big-money buyers.

“For example, there is a Uncle Mo (hip 197) then show up in the ring and all the big guys get on their horses,” he explained. “I looked at the list of people who visited him and they were definitely around 14 people. So I said it doesn’t make sense to bid against those guys. While on our side we looked at the listing and said we had a good chance of getting this horse for the price we wanted this horse. “

Regarding DJ Stable’s buying process, Green said, “We have [trainer] Mark Casse, who certainly knows the physical horses, and Jon Green knows what the value of the horses is, he watches them all the time.”

Hip 80, bred by Emily and Oliver Bushnell and deposited by Lane’s End, is outside the Shysheisnot (Tribal Rule).

“This looks like a runner,” Green said of the longing.

DJ Stable is currently represented by Into Mischief’s daughter, Wonder Wheel, who is scheduled to join GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies next week.

“It won’t make any difference,” Green said of the male. “We don’t look at the genealogy site. We look at the physical first. And then we looked at the pedigree page to find out the value for the horse. “

The Hip 74, bred by Three Chimneys Farm and commissioned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, passed Shocking Fast, being the half-sister to the winner of GI Preakness S. This year (Gunman).

“These are the types of athletes that if they’re successful, they’re worth a lot of money,” Green said. “You might say to me, ‘Well, there are horses with no pedigree that win Class I races,’ but it is more likely that the ones that win Class I races are the ones with origin and physicality. So that’s what we’re looking for.”

DJ Stable bought six crested birds at OBS’s October sale, including a Mitole pony and a puppy from Mitole. Factor to match the $210,000 discount figure. This activity also bought the sales son topped $ 600,000 of Curlin at Fasig-Tipton July discount this year.

“We’re also selling a lot right now,” Green said. “We’ve been very heavy on the fillings because we have a breeding program. So we have the ability to share with ponies. We’ve never had that before. If you have a good body, good physique and pedigree and she does well on the track, then you have a chance to breed it and get it included in Book 1.

“We found that you could sell certain horses and then we had the advantage that, if we didn’t get the numbers we wanted, we could actually race them. So the number [of horses in the stable]Believe it or not, same as last year. “

DJ Stable attacks again at the end of the session for a Vino Rosso pony (hip 387) for $60,000.

Arrogate Filly helps start the October sale

A filly of Arrogate (hip 7) will travel west to the late bull trainer Bob Baffert’s barn after blood dealer Donato Lanni made a final bid of $350,000 on behalf of John Rogitz for the bull early in the session. the first of the Fasig-Tipton sale on Monday.

Desire was bred by Paul Tackett and his late son Phil and deposited by Tackett. She is from the Sahara (Desert Party) and is the half-sister to the 1st place winner My Conquestadory (Artie Schiller).

“She looks like a good Arrogate,” Lanni said. “She looks nimble and she’s light on her feet. She was a great dirty person who made everything right. “

Lanni said of Rogitz, “He’s a new guy to us and we think this would suit him very well.”
