A very well-bred Dialed In filly sold for $350,000 during Thursday’s OBS June 2-year-old sale to bloodstock agent Alistair Roden, who is very familiar with the filly’s family.
Roden previously purchased two of the filly’s half-brothers: Anothertwistafate, who won the San Gabriel S. (G2) and Longacres Mile (G3), and the graded stakes-placed Ajourneytofreedom.
“I know the family very well,” Roden said after signing the ticket on the filly. “When I first saw her, I thought she was like Ajourneytofreedom, but the more I looked at her, she was more like Anothertwistafate. She’s large and well-balanced, a fancy-looking filly. The family seems to really improve. They all seem to be that type of a family, they are not wow horses in the springtime, but they seem to get better.”
The dark bay filly, hip No. 418, was consigned by Ciaran Dunne’s Wavertree Stables, Inc. and bred in Kentucky by Bryant Prentice.
On the similarities between the siblings, Dunne said, “I think (Imprecation) is a mare who really throws to a stallion. Anothertwistafate was as pretty a horse as we ever had. This filly here, you can really see the Dialed In (in her).”
Dailed In’s progeny have had another outstanding year on the track, with the likes of Super Stock winning the Arkansas Derby (G1) and Papetu placing in the Fountain of Youth S. (G2). He’ll be represented this Saturday by Defunded in the Affirmed S. (G3) at Santa Anita Park.
