Florida 2YOs Day-4: US$675k Hard Spun Colt
Hill n Dale Bloodstock (again acting for Frank Fletcher Racing Operations) also paid US$675,000 for a colt from the 1st-crop of Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & 2007 Gr1 Kentucky Derby runner-up Hard Spun (out of A.P.Indy mare Light From Above) consigned by Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds. The colt (whose dam Light From Above is a half-sister to graded stakes-winner Strategic Partner) clocked 10.0sec for 1 furlong during the pre-sale breeze-up session & previously sold for just US$30,000 at last year's Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
