Kentucky Yearlings Day-1: US$275k Ghostzapper Filly

Wednesday, 16th July 2008

McMahon Bloodstock as agent for Saratoga Stable (a pin-hooking partnership headed by Mike McMahon & Eddie Woods) paid US$275,000 for the 1st yearling by 2004 US Horse-Of-The-Year Ghostzapper to go through an auction: a filly out of Carson City mare Fast And Early (consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency). The filly is a half-sister to Gr3-winner Sharp Impact & McMahon told thoroughbredtimes.com: "She's got all the makings of the type of filly we want to take to auction. We liked everything about her. She looks like a rocket. It's the right way to breed to Ghostzapper in my opinion. You always want a speed mare & this mare has thrown a lot of speed."
