Darby Dan consigned and sold a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Winter Memories during Day 1 of the Keeneland September yearling sale, with K. K. Eishindo going to $500,000 for the regally-bred son of Tiznow out of millionaire Memories of Silver.

Selling as hip No. 123, the Kentucky-bred bay colt will try to follow in the footsteps of a truly great family. Winter Memories, who campaigned in Darby Dan's colors, recently retired after a career that included graded stakes wins at two, three and four for trainer James Toner.  Winter Memories earned $908,100, with victories in the Garden City S. (G1), Lake George S. (G2), Sands Point S. (G2), and three other graded stakes.

Winter Memories joined her dam Memories of Silver as part of the Darby Dan broodmare band. Memories of Silver set a track record in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1) at Keeneland and also won the Grade 1 Beverly D, highlights of a career that concluded with $1,448,715 in earnings. Besides Winter Memories, Memories of Silver has produced the stakes winners British Blue and War Trace.
