Darby Dan sells Saratoga session topper
RSS Feeds Monday, August 15, 2011

A yearling colt from Darby Dan’s consignment topped the second session of the Saratoga New York-bred Preferred Sale on August 14. 

Hip 324, a chestnut colt from the first U.S. crop by Indygo Shiner brought $185,000 from Peachtree Stables’ John Fort, owner of 2011 Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Plum Pretty.

Bred by Dixie Farm, the session-topper was the second highest-priced yearling of the two-day sale, and helped propel Darby Dan to the second highest average of any consignor at the venue.

The Darby Dan yearlings averaged $104,500, out-performing the overall sales average by 85%. With a per-yearling average of $56,277, the Sale was up 24.1% over the 2010 edition.

In 2011, Darby Dan sales consignments have produced numerous stakes performers, including America’s top-ranked older horse, Tizway.
