WinStar Farm stallion Pure Prize had the highest priced filly of the first day of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds in Training sale in Timonium, Md., on May 20 when trainer Lynn Whiting went to $240,000 for the chestnut juvenile.
Acting on behalf of Oaklawn Park owner Charles Cella, Whiting purchased hip No. 167 from the consignment of Niall Brennan Stables, agent. The filly had worked an eighth in :10 3/5 at the breeze show.
"She's a class act," said Whiting. "She's a good-looking filly and she's seems to be the right kind."
Bred in Maryland by Dark Hollow Farm, the filly is out of the stakes-placed Not For Love mare Bamba and is a half sister to stakes winner Plum, winner of the 2011 Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship at Laurel.
