A dark bay filly by Artie Schiller brought a top bid of $240,000 during the second day of the March 12-13 OBS Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale in central Florida. The filly had breezed a quick eighth mile in 10 seconds flat during last week's under tack show, just a tick off the fastest preview breeze time.
The filly, cataloged as hip No. 264 and consigned by Eisaman Equine, agent, went to Conquest Stables LLC. Bred in Kentucky, she is out of the stakes-placed Malibu Moon mare Golden Artemis.
Artie Schiller, known as a versatile sire who gets winners on all surfaces and distances, was a worldwide top 5 sire in 2012, with graded winners sprinting and routing. In the past week, he has had winners varying from 5 ½ furlongs on the dirt to 1 1/8 miles on the turf.
