Eight On Offer By Bluewater at Fasig-Tipton New York
Thursday, August 12, 2021

It’s another busy weekend in Saratoga for the Bluewater Sales crew when we show off eight yearlings set to go through the ring on Sunday night and Monday at the Fasig-Tipton New York-Bred Sale.

The first future Bluewater graduate through the ring is Hip 333, a colt from the first crop of Grade 1 winner and dual surface graded stakes winner Mo Town. Bred by Cheryl Prudhomme and Dr. Michael Gallivan, the colt is a sibling to two winners from two to race out of Among the Willows. That mare is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Havana Gold and one of six winners overall for her own dam after winning six races.

There is stakes form throughout the colt’s pedigree with his granddam the half-sister to two stakes winners and one stakes placed runner who has also produced multiple stakes placers.

Hard Spun’s Hip 371 is the first foal out of two-time Pioneerof Nile mare Cleo. Cleo is a half-sister to Grade 3 winner and Grade 1-placed Prospective Saint, who also produced Grade 2-placed Island Saint. There are stakes performers under Hip 371’s second through four dams with her third dam producing stakes-placed Eclipse Bay, who is the dam of Grade 2 winner Niigon’s Eclipse. Also listed on this filly’s page are champions Soaring Free and Mountain Angel with each of her three dams to have racing age foals producing stakes performers and stakes producers.

Bred by Michael Shanley, this filly was purchased for $67,000 at the OBS 2021 Winter Mixed Sale by DKW Racing.

Speightstown’s Hip 389 is a second generation homebred for Southern Equine Stables as a granddaughter of champion Maryfield. Out of a Bernardini mare, Hip 389’s dam is a half-sister to Group 2-placed Radio Silence and to Hallawallah, who won in June and was fourth in the G2 Princess Rooney.

Speightstown bred to Bernardini mares has proven to be successful with the cross producing four winners from five to race, including Grade 3 winner National Flag and Grade 2-placed Olive Branch. A colt we offered from another Maryfield daughter Monday at the Saratoga sale was so highly regarded that he went unsold on a final bid of $495,000.

Hip 392 saw an update on July 12 when his half-brother broke his maiden. A $150,000 weanling purchase by Machmer Hall over the winter, the colt was bred by Team Millennium Stable out of Dixie Gem. From the third crop of the late Laoban, the colt is a grandson of a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Pure Gossip and stakes winner Lady Vi.

The colt’s fourth dam, Grade 2 winner Thunder Achiever, is also a multiple stakes winner and the dam of Grade 3 winner Street Gam. The mare’s daughters also produced stakes winner Thunderestimate and stakes-placed Thunderous Gem. This colt is bred similarly to Uncle Mo’s stakes winner and multiple graded stakes placed Thrilled, who is by Uncle Mo out of a Giant’s Causeway mare.

We also offer another Laoban 12 hips later when E Storm’s Southern Equine Stables-bred colt enters the ring as Hip 404. The colt only has two siblings to race with both giving him a major update over the last two months. Full sister Esotica broke her maiden at Saratoga by 6 ¾ lengths on August 1 and half-brother Big Royal Lineage is now the winner of three consecutive races after an Allowance win on July 10.

You can’t get much better than this family with E Storm a granddaughter of Grade 3 winner Welcome Surprise. In addition to being the granddam of Grade 3 winner Guest Suite and stakes-placed Welcoming, the Grade 3 winning Welcome Surprise is also a half-sister to Horse of the Year A.P. Indy and G1 Preakness S. winner Summer Squall among the many stakes performers and stakes producers out of bluehen broodmare Weekend Surprise.

From Collected’s first crop is a colt out of three-time winner Punkin’s Pride. Selling as Hip 521, the colt was bred by Windylea Farm - New York and sold at this year’s Keeneland January sale. A grandson of stakes winner North Beach, his dam is also a half-sister to Grade 2 winner and multiple Grade 1-placed Lightstream and two other winners. North Beach is also a half-sister to two stakes winners in Grade 3 winner Kolgowan and stakes winner Rivoltella.

There are stakes winners under three of this colt’s first four dams with only his young dam not following the trend – and she only has one runner.

Southern Equine Stables-bred Hip 532 saw an update added to his page after the catalog was released when his half-sister finished second and third in two Allowances. This family is a strong one with the colt out of the stakes-placed A.P. Indy mare Risk a Chance, who youngest named foal – a 3-year-old Quality Road colt was a $550,000 yearling purchase by China Horse Club and Maverick Racing.

Risk a Chance is a three-quarter sister to multiple stakes winner and stakes producer Mineralogist, with the pair out of Grade 2 winner Seeking The Ante, who is a half-sister to G1 Florida Derby winner Friends Lake. The pair are out of three-time Grade 1 winner Antespend, who herself is out of a multiple Grade 1 winner.

This colt is bred on the same cross as five stakes winners, led by this year’s G1 Dubai World Cup winner Mystic Guide and Southern Equine’s G1 Whitney winner Moreno.

We close out the sale with Hip 587, a second-crop colt for Unified out of Grade 2-placed Tap for Luck. Bred by Hidden Lake Farm, the colt is a half-brother to three winners from four to race with half-brother Thatsafactjack winning by 2.75l on July 6 and half-sister Bar Tap has winning three in a row from June 6 to July 15. She is entered again on Saturday.

Tap for Luck is also half-sister to Song to the Moon, who produced Grade 2 winner and Grade 1-placed Jeltrin and two other stakes performers. Their dam is also a half-sister to a stakes winner and producer in stakes winner Freefourracing, who produced stakes winners Ready Racer and Speedway, and Grade 2-placed Kamsack.
