(Austin, TX) – One-hundred-thirty-two two-year-olds are cataloged with sire power, both nationally and regionally, in the 2022 Texas Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale, presented by the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Lone Star Park. The sale is set for April 6th at the sale pavilion at Lone Star Park; the breeze show is April 4th at the track in Grand Prairie.
Two-year-olds by Arrogate, Connect, Constitution, Distorted Humor, Ghostzapper, Hard Spun, Kantharos, Malibu Moon, Runhappy, and Sky Mesa represent national and international stallion power. The catalog features prospects from first year stallions Accelerate, Always Dreaming, Army Mule, Cloud Computing, Good Samaritan, McCracken, Mendelssohn, Mo Town, and Tapwrit. And offspring from some of Texas’ leading stallions, including Bradester, Competitive Edge, Eagle, and Too Much Bling, will go through the auction ring.
“We tried to put together a diverse catalog with something for just about everyone,” TTA Sales Director Foster Bridewell said. “Our consignors really had a lot to offer, in terms of stallion strength and pedigree, and we are grateful they saw fit to sell with us. We’re excited about book we’ve put together and think our buyers will be too.”
The catalog is full of notable pedigrees both regionally and nationally. Hip 117 is half to Texas champion Mr Money Bags, by Too Much Bling, from Clary Bloodstock. Hip 19 is a half to Texas Thoroughbred Futurity winner Streak of Silver consigned by Pike Racing. Hip 87 is a half-sister to stakes winner Pinky Ring Bling and Texas champ Gold Pilot from the Benchmark Training Center draft. Hip 98 is a Ghostzapper filly out of a half-sister to GSW stallion Adios Charlie, consigned by Twin Oaks Training Center. Hip 102 is a half-sister to Texas champion Ima Discreet Lady and Hip 114 is a Hard Spun colt out of a mare that’s already produced GSP Crowded Trade.
“The catalog is strong, family wise,” Bridewell added. “We have horses that are out of stakes winners, by stakes winners, by proven and new stallions, half siblings to stakes winners or stakes placed horses, and half to Texas champions. We couldn’t ask for a better group and can’t thank our consignors enough for bringing them to Texas.”
