Kentucky 2YOs: US$310k Birdstone Colt
Prime Equestrian of France paid US$310,000 for a Birdstone colt (out of El Corredor mare Elle Nicole) consigned by Ciaran & Amy Dunne's Wavertree Stables. The colt (a half-brother winner Make A Grand) similarly clocked 10.2sec for furlong during the pre-sale breeze-up session. His dam Elle Nicole is a half-sister to stakes-winners American Century & Energized. The colt was previously sold for US$150,000 at the 2009 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
