Florida Adena 2YOs: US$220k El Prado Colt
In Florida, Eric Fein (who has enjoyed on-track success in New York with multiple Gr3-placed winner Rogue Agent) paid top price of US$220,000 for a 2YO El Prado colt already named Mount Grace (out of Gr2-placed winning Saint Ballado mare Saint Bernadette) at the annual 2YOs-In-Training Sale at Frank Stronach's Adena Springs South property in Williston in Florida. (In 2006 Adena Springs was leading breeder (by earnings) in North America for the 4th year & was honoured with its 3rd consecutive Eclipse Award for its achievements.) Fein told thoroughbredtimes.com: "My advisor Gene Parotta really liked the horse, so we bought him. We've bought horses before: hopefully, this will be the one that gets lucky."
