A colt from the first crop of Sky Kingdom lived up to his pre-sale hype when the flashy juvenile brought a top bid of $875,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale of 2-year-olds on Wednesday.

After working a bullet eighth-mile in :9 4/5 seconds last week, consignor Ciaran Dunne had high hopes for hip No. 155, who ultimately went to Rockingham Ranch’s Gary Hartunian.

“Ciaran told me he was the nicest horse he had,” Hartunian said of the colt’s appeal. “He vetted clean and Ciaran said he could go two turns. I’m looking for a two-turn horse. I didn’t want to lose him over $100,000 or $150,000, so I just kept bidding.” 

Bred by Westrock Stables, is out of Truelladeville (Yes It’s True). The colt was purchased by Dunne for $115,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton July Yearling Sale. 

Sky Kingdom's first crop of runners will be making their debut this Spring. His fee this year at Darby Dan is $5,000, stands and nurses.
