Michael Lund Peterson went to $625,000 to acquire the colt from the first crop of 2013 Breeders' Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man who went his quarter in 21 1/5 seconds to lead the 61 who worked that distance by two-fifths of a second.
The April colt, who was consigned by Kirkwood Stables, is out of the winning Giant's Causeway mare Itsagiantcauseway, who is from the family of Canadian Horse of the Year Peaks and Valleys and Eclipse Award champion Forever Together. Other graded stakes winners in the extended family include prominent sire Broken Vow.
Today's session is nearing its conclusion, so final figures and recap will be coming shortly. Stay tuned!
