First-Crop sire Tapiture had the top-priced colt at the inaugural Fasig-Tipton Santa Anita Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale on June 5 when Phoenix Thoroughbred III went to $350,000 for hip No. 12.

The colt, consigned by Tom McCrocklin, agent, had breezed a quarter-mile in :21.1 at the Under Tack Preview Show. The colt sold for $100,000 at the 2018 Keeneland September Yearling sale.

"He worked a quarter-mile in :21 1/5 and he did it well,” agent Tom Ludt said after signing the ticket on the chestnut. “It’s a small sale and he stood out, so I knew he’d be expensive. But I thought he was the best-looking horse in the sale and he had the best breeze." 

Out of the Awesome Again mare Awesomekaylee, the chestnut colt to multiple stakes winner The Money Monster.

Tapiture already has three winners from his first six starters and is in the top five on the First-Crop Sire list. His 2-year-old sales average of $143,778 is more than 19 times his advertised stud fee.
