Florida 2YOs Day-1: US$625k Broken Vow Colt
Sobhy Sonbol (acting for Ahmed Zayat) paid the Day-1 top price of US$625,000 for a Broken Vow colt already named Red Vow (out of 16-year-old Strawberry Road mare Sedona Berry) consigned by O&H Bloodstock. The colt is a half-brother to Japanese stakes-winner Eishin Hampton & clocked 21.4sec for 2 furlongs during the pre-sale breeze-up session. Sonbol told thoroughbredtimes.com: "He's beautiful physically & his breeze here was great. He's out of a Strawberry Road mare & he looks a lot like (Australian multiple Gr1-winning sire) Strawberry Road." The colt was previously purchased for US$65,000 at the 2007 Keeneland September yearling sale.
