Hip No. 749 - Photo by Z
A yearling Unbridled's Song colt attracted plenty of attention late in the second session of the Keeneland January sale when the newly-turned yearling was the subject of a bidding war that ended with Rick Porter's Fox Hill Farm emerging as the winning bidder at $490,000.
The bid was the third highest of the Jan. 10 session, and the highest price of the day for a colt. Fox Hill bought the gray or roan colt, hip No. 749, from the Haven Bloodstock Agency, Inc. consignment. Out of Ideal Image, the yearling is a half-brother to Sassy Image, winner of the Grade 1 Humana Distaff S. and Grade 1 Princess Rooney S., as well as three other graded stakes. Sassy Image is a finalist for 2011 Eclipse Award for champion female sprinter.
