Four New York-breds led by a colt by Volatile and filly by Vino Rosso sold for six figures to highlight the opening session of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-year-olds in training sale Monday in Timonium, Maryland.

Cash Is King/Alex Zacney went to $250,000 to land the top-priced New York-bred of the day, Hip 136, a son of Volatile out of the winning Storm Cat mare Lexington Girl. Bred by and foaled at Hidden Lake Farm in Stillwater, the colt is the 13th foal out of the full sister to graded stakes winners Magicalmysterycat and Burmilla.

Consigned by LG, agent, the Volatile colt is a half sibling to 11 winners including stakes winners Whirlin Curlin and Lexington Street. He originally sold for $27,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October yearling sale.

Hip 23, a daughter of Vino Rosso bred by Christopher Shelli, sold for $190,000 Monday in Timonium. Photo courtesy of de Meric Sales.

Mark Glatt, agent, landed the session’s top-priced New York-bred filly, going to $190,000 for Hip 23, a daughter of Vino Rosso out of the unraced Ghostzapper mare Fear This. Bred by Christopher Shelli and foaled at Fort Christopher’s Thoroughbreds in Fort Edward, the filly is a half sibling to five winners including the New York-bred Violence ridgling and $170,385-earner Gambler’s Fallacy and New York-bred Palace Malice gelding and $105,025-earner Fast N Fearious.

Consigned by de Meric Sales, agent, the Vino Rosso filly originally sold for $45,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga New York-bred yearling sale.

Fasig-Tipton reported sales on 29 of the 41 New York-breds through the ring Monday for a total of $1,653,000, an average price of $57,000 and median of $40,000.

LEB, agent for West Point Thoroughbreds, paid the highest price of the session for a New York-sired juvenile, going to $85,000 for Hip 216, a daughter of Solomini.

Bred by Amy Boll and Raymond DeStefano and foaled at Buckridge Farm in Kinderhook, the filly is the fourth foal out of the Americain mare Peeress. A full sister to the winning New York-bred 3-year-old colt Solo in Paris, the Solomini filly was consigned by Grassroots Training and Sales LLC. The filly sold twice prior to going through the ring Monday – for $11,000 at the 2022 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga fall mixed sale and for $20,000 at last year’s OBS winter mixed sale.

Solomini, a 9-year-old son of Curlin who stands for $7,500 at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs, ranks third on the Empire State’s general sire list and topped the 2023 New York freshman and juvenile sire lists.

The sale concludes with Tuesday’s second session at 11 a.m.
