A filly from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Bee Jersey brought a winning bid of $225,000 during Tuesday’s opening session of the OBS March 2-year-olds sale, a price that is 45 times his advertised stud fee.

The chestnut filly, hip No. 107 consigned by Top Line Sales Agency, served notice last Friday at the Under Tack show, when she breezed a furlong in a very quick :09 4/5 seconds.

Bill & Corinne Heiligbrodt were the winning bidders for the filly bred by Charles Fipke. The filly previously sold to Briston Bloodstock for $42,000 at last year’s Keeneland September Yearling sale.

The filly is the second foal out of the Distorted Humor mare Secretariat Humor and hails from the family of Canadian turf champion Perfect Soul (IRE).

Bee Jersey won nearly $1 million in his career, topped by a victory in the stallion-making Met Mile (G1). His next 2-year-olds at auction will be in the upcoming Fasig-Tipton sale at Gulfstream Park.
