Tiznow Keeneland Sept early report
Wednesday, September 12, 2012
A half-brother to Grade 1 winner Winter Memories by Tiznow brought $500,000 during day 1 of the Keeneland September yearling sale, with K. K. Eishindo placing the winning bid for the regally-bred colt out of millionaire Memories of Silver.

Selling as hip No. 123, the Kentucky-bred bay colt will try to follow in the footsteps of his half-sister Winter Memories, who recently retired after a career that included graded stakes wins at two, three and four. Winter Memories earned $908,100, with victories in the Garden City S. (G1), Lake George S. (G2), Sands Point S. (G2), and three other graded stakes.

Winter Memories is out of Memories of Silver, who set a track record in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1) at Keeneland and also won the Grade 1 Beverly D, highlights of a career that concluded with $1,448,715 in earnings. Besides Winter Memories, Memories of Silver has produced the stakes winners British Blue and War Trace.

The following day, Tiznow's top seller was another $500,000 yearling, this time the top-priced filly of the session and the third-highest winning bid overall. Hip No. 349 was consigned by Sweezy and Partners, Agent X and bought by Shadwell Estate Company, Ltd.

The bay Kentucky bred filly is out of the unraced mare Storminthegarden, who is a half-sister to turf champion Paradise Creek, $1.4 million earner and Grade 1 winners Forbidden Apple and Wild Event.
