California 2YOs: US$300k Master Command Colt
In the US auction ring, bloodstock agent Brett Lindenbaum paid top price of US$300,000 for a colt by deceased multiple Gr2-winning stallion Master Command (out of 4-time-winning & stakes-placed 11YO Salt Lake mare Grinch) at the 1-day Barretts Equine May Sale of 2YOs-In-Training at the Hinds Pavilion at Fairplex Park in Pomona in California. The Kentucky-bred colt (consigned by Ciaran Dunne's Wavertree Stables as agent) previously sold for just US$37,000 as a yearling at the 2011 Keeneland September Sale & clocked 10.0sec for 1 furlong during the pre-sale breeze-up session.
