US Maryland 2YOs Day-1: US$210k Exchange Rate Colt
Ahmed Zayat's Zayat Stables & Mike Moreno from Southern Equine Stables paid US$210,000 for a colt by Gr1-winning Three Chimneys stallion Exchange Rate (out of stakes-winning Dynaformer mare Maliziosa) consigned by Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds as agent. (Zayat & Moreno jointly race this season's Gr1-winning 3YO colt Bodemeister, who has finished a gallant 2nd in his last 2 starts in this month's Gr1 Kentucky Derby & Gr1 Preakness Stakes). The colt (a half-brother to stakes-placed winner Tutti Buona Gente) clocked 21.8sec for 2 furlongs in the pre-sale breeze-up session. He previously sold for US$105,000 at last year's Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
