Florida 2YOs Day-2: US$200k Pico Central Filly
In the US, Steve Shahinian (as agent for Harvey Clarke) paid top price of US$200,000 for a filly from the 2nd-crop of Brazilian-bred stallion Pico Central (out of Cherokee Run mare Strawberrydaiquiri) during the 2nd session at the 4-day Ocala Breeders' Sales Company Spring Sale of 2YOs-In-Training in Florida. The filly (consigned by Eddie Woods as agent) clocked an equal-fastest 33.0sec for 3 furlongs during the pre-sale breeze-up session; & her dam Strawberrydaiquiri is a half-sister to Gr2 Louisiana Derby winner Wimbledon. The filly previously sold as a yearling for just US$9,000 at the 2009 OBSC August Sale.
