The OBS April Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training simply smashed records this week in what proved to be a robust juvenile market.
The April Sale established new records for gross ($33,706,400), average ($44,351) and median price ($27,000).
The sale topper, hip No. 929, a $650,000 First Samurai filly consigned by Eddie Woods, agent, sold on the sale’s final day on Thursday. The filly was purchased by The Three Amigos.
Produced from the stakes-placed Unaccounted For mare Refugee, the bay filly worked a quarter in :21 at the under tack preview. She cost $23,000 last year as a yearling. The filly is from the family of champion Davona Dale and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Profit, an earner of $180,285.
