A colt from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Tom’s d’Etat and a filly from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Complexity highlighted the New York-bred offerings at the two-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern fall yearling sale that wrapped up Tuesday in Timonium, Maryland.
Calumet Farm purchased the Tom’s d’Etat colt, sold as Hip 267 out of the Turning Point Bloodstock consignment. Bred by Big Dom Racing Stable LLC, the colt is out of the winning To Honor and Serve mare Pursuing Justice.
Pursuing Justice, who is out of the Grade 2-winning New York-bred Seeking the Gold mare Seeking the Ante, is the dam of the 2-year-old Audible filly Lady Arwen, who broke her maiden in her second start August 24 at Saratoga Race Course. Pursuing Justice’s first foal, the New York-bred 3-year-old Nyquist gelding, sold for $105,000 at the 2021 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga New York-bred yearling sale.
The Tom’s d’Etat colt – the 10th most expensive colt in the sale – was a $30,000 RNA as a weanling at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga fall mixed sale.
Chief Horse Futures LLC went to $70,000 to purchase Hip 180, the daughter of Complexity out of the unraced Malibu Moon mare Just Like the Moon.
Bred by Newtownanner Stud Farm and consigned by Blake-Albina Thoroughbred Services LLC, agent, the filly is the first foal out of the full sister to the Grade 3-placed Cue the Moon and half-sister to stakes winner Red Hot Buddha.
