Leading the charge was the 3-year-old Huntsville gelding Hazeville p,3,1:53.2h, a New York Sire Stakes winner two weeks ago at Saratoga and second in the NYSS just last Sunday at Vernon Downs. Consigned by PEO as agent for John McDermott, he was purchased by David Rovine, VIP Stable and Howard Taylor for $130,000 after a spirited bidding battle.

The other six-figure seller, Bolt Of Beauty p,4,1:51f ($289,699), was bought for $106,000 by Mulligan Stables from PEO representing seller Erv Miller. After racing competitively in the Blue Chip Matchmaker Series, she came to the sale fresh off a third-place effort in the Filly & Mare Open Pace June 16 at Yonkers.

Other notable sellers were Four Under par ($86,000) and Cheryls Shadow ($76,000).

Included in the sale were five available slots for the “Next Generation” Stakes at Scioto Downs. Those races for Ohio-sired 2-year-olds of both gaits and sexes — each with a purse of $150,000 — will be contested July 4.

The purse pool will receive the first $10,000 of each lot’s final auction price, with the amounts beyond that donated to the Standardbred Transition Alliance. Four of the five slots sold for a combined total of $41,000, creating a $1,000 donation to the STA. The slot for 2-year-old pacing colts remains open on a “make offer” basis.

In all, 40 of 48 lots that were offered sold for a total of $1,168,500 and the sale posted a racehorse average of $31,319.

Sale manager David Reid said the sale set a good tone for the “in-person” Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale, scheduled in just a month’s time, and Preferred Equine Online’s next mixed sale, with a date yet to be decided upon.

“It’s pretty straightforward,” Reid said. “Owners and trainers are hungry for quality racehorses and those that fit the bill sell at a premium. The participation in this sale — from consignors, bidders and buyers — was outstanding.”
