A 2-year-old colt by Bellamy Road sold for $175,000 May 24 at the
Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale, bringing the highest price at auction this
year for his sire's offspring. The dark bay/brown colt is part from the
second crop of the Paul's Mill stallion, who is second on the sophomore
sire list in terms of earnings.
Stephens Thoroughbreds LLC, agent, consigned the colt as hip No. 260.
The final bidder was F. Thomas Conway, and was his only purchase of the
sale. Prior to the sale, Conway's purchase worked an eighth mile in :11
1/5 seconds while well off the rail over a sloppy Timonium surface. View

The juvenile is out of the unraced Vicar mare Predictress. She is the
dam of Three Day Rush, winner of the Monmouth Park NATC Futurity S. and
Whirlaway S. at Aqueduct. Predictress is a half-sister to the multiple
graded stakes winning filly Prophet's Warning and comes from the same
family as the top-class Double Honor, who took the Sapling S. (G3) and
placed in the Norfolk S. (G2), Bashford Manor (G3), and Sanford S. (G3),
all at age 2.
