Florida 2YOs Day-1: US$300k Mizzen Mast Colt
Agent Mike Ryan (acting for Denis Of Cork's owner Bill Warren) paid US$300,000 for a Mizzen Mast colt (out of Capote mare Patriotforpeace) consigned by Excel Bloodstock as agent. Ryan told thoroughbredtimes.com: "I thought he might go in the top 10 or so horses, of the 2-turn type horses. That's what I'm looking for. This is a big solid horse by a good sire." Ryan purchased Denis Of Cork for Warren for US$250,000 at the 2007 Barretts March Sale of Selected 2YOs-In-Training & the Harlan's Holiday colt is unbeaten in 3 starts (including the Gr3 Southwest Stakes). The colt previously sold for US$40,000 at the 2007 OBSC August yearling sale.
