3 Juveniles From Mission Impazible’s 2nd Crop Sell for 6-Figure Prices at OBS March 14-15 Sale

Posted on Categories Stallions

missionhotThree juveniles from the second crop of Grade 2-winning millionaire MISSION IMPAZIBLE brought six-figure prices at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales (OBS) Company’s March 14-15 sale of 2-year-olds in training, exceeding the $100,000 overall median for the sale, where juveniles by some of North America’s most fashionable sires were offered. All three of these Mission Impazible 2-year-olds were cataloged as registered New York-breds.

Selling for $285,000 was Hip No. 489, a colt bred by Sequel Thoroughbreds and Twin Creeks Farm and purchased from the consignment of Eddie Woods, Agent XIV, by Peter Quinn. This colt worked a quarter-mile in 21 1/5 on Saturday morning, March 11. His full brother, from Mission Impazible’s first crop, is 2016-2017 winner ETHAN HUNT ($120,773), who is multiple stakes-placed.

Selling for $135,000 was Hip No. 216, a colt bred by Mustang Farms and purchased from the consignment of Crane Thoroughbred Services, Agent II, by Kim Valerio as agent for Michael Dubb. He worked a quarter-mile in 21 3/5 on Thursday morning, March 9. His unraced dam’s only other registered offspring, this colt’s 5-year-old half-sister, won on turf at Gulfstream Park and Woodbine, so his proficiency on grass – in addition to his demonstrated ability on dirt – is an intriguing question.

Selling for $125,000 was Hip No. 629, a filly bred by Twin Creeks Farm and purchased from the consignment of Paul Sharp, Agent VIII, by McMahon and Hill Bloodstock, agent. This filly worked a furlong in 10-flat on Saturday morning, March 11. The first two offspring produced from this filly’s dam have yet to race.

Freud’s Ace Miler Argentine-Bred Key Dance Scores Her Second G2 Argentine Turf Win in 2-Week Span

Posted on Categories Stallions

freudthemaninnyTwo weeks after scoring a 1,600-meter (about a mile) Group 2 victory on Palermo turf, KEY DANCE shipped a few miles northwest to Buenos Aires’ suburbs to register another 1,600-meter Group 2 turf win in the Ricardo Ezequiel y Ezequiel M. Fernandez Guerrico at San Isidro on Saturday, March 11. The dominating two-length tally represented the tenth career win for the Argentine-bred FREUD filly, who has Group 2 victories on Argentine dirt and turf and is arguably the top female miler in South America.

A homebred 4-year-old (foaled 9-17-12) racing for Santa Ines Stable, Key Dance has six wins on dirt and four on turf and initially was a successful “long sprinter” at 1,400 meters (about seven furlongs) before scoring her first group victory in her first effort at 1,600 meters last August. In her latest outing, she stumbled at the start but quickly recovered to take command and led all the way while being stalked throughout by a Group 1 winner at 1,600 meters. Two negative (successively-faster) intermediate 400-meter (about a quarter-mile) splits following a casual opening pace effectively decided the contest well before Key Dance approached the finish, as her six rivals – three of them Group 1 or Group 2 winners – failed to threaten. It was Key Dance’s second victory on San Isidro turf to add to a six-length romp against 13 rivals at 1,400 meters on heavy (wet) turf a year earlier. Eight of her victories, including three of her four group tallies, have been scored at Palermo in central Buenos Aires.

Six days earlier (March 5) at La Plata – about 30 miles southeast of Buenos Aires near the Atlantic Coast – Freud’s Argentine-bred dirt-routing son, PSICOTECNICO, registered his second black-type placing with a runner-up effort in the listed Clasico Comparacion at 2,200 meters (about 1 3/8 miles) on dirt. Also black-type-placed in a listed event on San Isidro turf, Psicotecnico races for Luna Negra (Black Moon) Stable. In his most recent outing prior to the Comparacion, Psicotecnico had won the featured Churrinche Handicap at 2,400 meters (about a mile and a half) on San Isidro dirt on January 24.

Freud’s three North American winners in the first nine days of March were highlighted by his dirt-and-turf stakes-winning daughter, FREUDIE ANNE ($336,658), who scored by almost two lengths in a Fair Grounds allowance optional going about a mile on turf on March 4. Owned by Marc Detampel, Fergus Galvin, Jayne Doi Johnson, and Adrian Mansergh Wallace and two-for-two in 2017 following a Fair Grounds allowance optional turf win four weeks earlier, top-weighted Freudie Anne spotted weight to two multiple stakes-winning rivals, including a three-time Grade 1 winner of more than $2.3-million.

Another of Freud’s stakes daughters to win recently was TURF CRAZE ($143,248), who scored by 6½ lengths at odds-on going a two-turn 6½ furlongs at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races on Thursday evening, March 9. Owned by Romar LLC, the Maryland-bred chestnut has won on dirt and turf, at such tracks as Laurel and Gulfstream Parks, and has been stakes-placed at Pimlico.

Breaking her maiden against nine rivals at Delta Downs on March 1 was Freud filly CABRINI, who won her 2017 debut by a daylight margin over the runner-up favorite while going five furlongs. The Louisiana-bred filly races for J-Lu Ltd Co and is Freud’s 397th known Northern Hemisphere winner.
