#OBSJan: de Meric Stables buys $170k yearling More Than Ready filly

The early leader at the OBS winter mixed sale is a yearling More Than Ready filly who sold to de Meric Stables, as agent, for $170,000.

The chestnut filly is out of the unraced Unbridled's Song mare Again, whose first foal to race is the Mexican Group 1-placed Madame Irma Rosa. Her second dam is the multiple Grade 1 winner Shine Again, and the extended family also includes Grade 2 winner Shiny Band.

Machmer Hall bred the filly in Kentucky, and she was consigned by Select Sales, as agent.

Wednesday's hammer price made the filly the first six-figure auction graduate out of Again. The filly was offered as a weanling at last year's Keeneland November breeding stock sale, but finished under her reserve with a final bid of $55,000.
