Optimism abounded at the Blooded Horse Summer Sale August 25-26 that proved to be the best in its 58 year history.  There were 212 yearlings featured in the Monday session including 121 Ohio-breds, 46 Indiana-breds, 16 Pennsylvania-breds, 12-Ontario-breds, and 4 New York-breds.

Spring Haven Farm sold two of the top three yearlings led by a beautiful Ohio-bred daughter of Fly Fly Buckeye out of an Artsplace mare that went to Dean Davis for $20,000.  They also consigned the striking black Major In Art colt Major Lee Fast purchased by Glenn Raia for $11,000.  Bidding was spirited for the Ohio-bred filly, Goldrush Katie, with Parent Stables getting the nod at $12,000.  The daughter of Trainforthefuture out of a half-sister to Yankee Glide was consigned by Pfeiffer Farms LLC.

After the yearling session, it was all about racehorses!  Topping the sale at $54,000 was Hezatrain, an ultra-consistent five-year-old trotting gelding coming off a 1.54.4f eight length win at Scioto Downs. Consigned by Wengerd Racing, the son of Trainforthefuture was purchased by Michael Casalino of New Jersey.  C’mon Mr Brock that had just demolished a field at Northfield Park by 13 lengths was purchased by Bob Lasky, agent for $27,000.

Michigan buyers were hot after good horses to race beyond their border. Shirley Halas signed the ticket for the competitive Meadowlands trotter JCs Jake for $23,000, Guy Cole picked up the trotting winner of $228,629 Over and Out for $21,000, and Michael Sova got the nod on the fast American Ideal daughter, Lady Ideal, for $20,000.

The Blooded Horse Fall Sale is scheduled for November 17-20 and will feature a black type yearling session on the first day.  Visit for entry deadlines.
