Maryland 2YOs Day-1: US$390k Malibu Moon Filly

Wednesday, 25th May 2011

Meanwhile trainer Bob Baffert paid the Day-1 top price of US$390,000 for a filly by Malibu Moon (the 2nd foal out of winning Giant’s Causeway mare Eden’s Causeway) consigned by Bridlewood Farm as agent. The filly (already named Eden’s Moon) clocked equal-fastest 21.6sec for 2 furlongs during the pre-sale breeze-up session. Her dam Eden’s Causeway is a half sister to champion Paradise Creek, Gr1-winners Forbidden Apple & Wild Event (by Wild Again), stakes-winner winner I’m Very Irish & Paradise River (dam of English champion David Junior). Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms bloodstock services director Donato Lanni (who helps Baffert pick out horses at the sales) told bloodhorse.com: “She’s for one of Bob’s clients. She is a well-bred filly with a strong family, she worked awesome on the track & she’s by Malibu Moon, so she has sire power. Check, check, check.”
