California 2YOs: US$1.2m Exploit Colt
Sobhy Sondol (buying on behalf of Egyptian brewing mogul Ahmed Zayat) paid US$1.2 million for an Exploit colt (the 1st foal out of 10-year-old stakes-placed winning Carson City mare Carson Jen) reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The colt (consigned by Florida pin-hooker Murray Smith) worked 2 furlongs in 21.2sec in the pre-sale breeze-up session with an opening fraction of 9.8sec. Smith previously bought the colt for US$100,000 at the Ocala Breeders' Sale Co August yearling sale. Sondol summed up: "I loved the colt. He looks just like his dad, if not a little bit better. He was flawless."
