Kentucky Yearlings Day-1: US$330k Unforgettable Max Colt

Wednesday, 16th July 2008

Bloodstock agent Jack Brothers from Hidden Brook (bidding for Paul Pompa, part owner of this year's dual classic winner Big Brown) paid the Day-1 top price of US$330,000 for a yearling colt from the 1st crop of Unforgettable Max (out of unraced 13-year-old Slewpy mare Wife's Objection) consigned by Gainesway as agent for a partnership that bought him for US$42,000 at the 2007 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Gainesway's Brian Graves told thoroughbredtimes.com: "We found him in the back ring in November, about Book 5. It was his walk that attracted us & when we got him home, he just turned into a standout." And Brothers summed up: "We were looking for the best athlete. Paul likes to put his toe in the pin-hooking waters & if they don't pin-hook, they go in his racing stable. He had everything we look for in a racehorse, from top to bottom. Unforgettable Max is a young sire, a full-brother to a classic winner & he was a fast horse."
