He is also a three quarter brother to Southwind Spirit t4, :54.1 now standing at stud.

The sale was set alight early with lot 1, Come See The Show making a eye-opening $550,000. This daughter of Somebeachsomewhere was purchased outright by Richard Young who owned this yearling in partnership before the sale. This filly is out of the world champion mare Put On A Show one of the fastest mares in history with a 1:47.3 mark and with $2,406,628 in the bank.
