OBS March Select 2YO sale breeze show report
Thursday, March 7, 2013
A pair of fillies by WinStar first-crop stallions Colonel John and Pioneerof the Nile breezed an eighth of a mile in :09 4/5 March 7, the fastest time of the day, in the first of two under tack previews for the Ocala Breeders' Sale Co.'s March selected sale of 2-year-olds in training March 12-13 in Ocala.

Hip No. 93, a Kentucky-bred filly by Colonel John out of the unraced Storm Cat mare Storm Key, is consigned by Day Vista Farms, agent for Fifty Shades of Hay Racing. The half sister to grade I stakes-placed runner Desert Key is from the female family of Apple Blossom H. (G1) winner Nine Keys.

"We breezed her last week and when she changed leads, she was gone," said Tim Mawhinney of Day Vista Farms. "Today, the rider just tapped her on the shoulder and she took off. Not only does she look the part, but she has a great mind. She's a smart filly."

Hip No. 148, a daughter of Pioneerof the Nile produced from the stakes-winning Forest Wildcat mare Wild Catseye, is consigned by Sequel Bloodstock (Becky Thomas), agent. The Kentucky-bred filly is a half sister to three winners.

Colonel John, who won the Santa Anita Derby (G1) and Travers S. (G1) in his 3-year-old season, stands this year for $15,000 LFS&N.

Pioneerof the Nile was a Grade 1 winner at two (CashCall Futurity) and three (Santa Anita Derby) and finished second in the Kentucky Derby (G1). The 7-year-old sire also stands this year for $15,000 LFS&N.

Videos of both breezes can be viewed here.
