Keeneland Day-3: US$950,000 Unbridled's Song Colt
Jess Jackson paid US$950,000 for an Unbridled's Song colt (out of winning Storm Cat mare Thiscatsforcaryl) in early action this morning (Australian time) on Day-3 at the 14-session Keeneland September Yearling Sale in Kentucky, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Jackson said he purchased the colt as a racing prospect, with the hope his on-track performance would eventually allow him to stand the colt in Central Kentucky: "If he runs like he looks, then I'll be happy. We all liked him & he looks the part of a racehorse with a sire's pedigree. He's the perfect combination." Frank Taylor, director of sales for consignor Taylor Made Sales Agency, added: "He's a hell of a colt. He reminds me so much of stakes-winner Half Ours. I love the Storm Cat-Unbridled's Song cross." (Half Ours, winner of this year's Three Chimneys Juvenile Stakes, is a son of Unbridled's Song out of Storm Cat mare Zing.) This colt's full brother Be Like Mine won the West Virginia Governor's Handicap & established a track record at Mountaineer Race Track in the process. And his dam Thiscatsforcaryl is a full sister to stakes-winner Cat Affair.
