Bee Jersey, whose first 2-year-olds at auction have averaged nearly 25 times his stud fee thus far in 2022, was right on that mark once again on Tuesday at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-old sale when hip No. 469 sold for $125,000.
Consigned by James Layden, agent, the chestnut colt went to Jack Wagon Stable LLC.
The colt is the second foal out of the Perfect Soul mare La Soul, who is a half-sister to noted sprinter and sire Munnings, as well as the multiple stakes winner Munnings Sister. Deeper in the family, the third dam is La Gueriere, a Grade 1 winner and dam of multiple graded winner Lasting Approval.
Bee Jersey entered stud in 2019 after winning the Metropolitan H. (G1) over the likes of Bolt d’Oro, McCraken and Good Samaritan, and defeating Girvin in the Steve Sexton Mile (G3). Bee Jersey stands for $5,000 S&N.
