Fasig-Tipton Select Day-2: Indian Charlie Colt Tops Session
Meanwhile, an Indian Charlie colt was the top-priced offering on the second day of the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearling sale in New York. The colt, from the final crop of deceased sire Indian Charlie, was purchased by Barbara Banke's Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton for US$750,000 from the consignment of Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency. He is from the unraced Storm Cat mare Queenie Cat (Storm Cat-Strawberry Reason, by Strawberry Road), a half-sister to undefeated champion juvenile and sire Vindication (Seattle Slew-Strawberry Reason, by Strawberry Road). Vindication won the 2002 Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile. "This is a very fun and exciting time for us," Bolton told bloodhorse.com. "This colt comes from a top family… he will eventually go to our training facility in Ocala where we know daily what is going on." The Stonestreet Training & Rehabilitation Center in Ocala, formerly owned by Vinery, was purchased by Banke last December for US$6.6 million.
