As of Thursday afternoon, it was the day’s biggest purchase with 22 million-dollar horses sold.
“He’s out of a great broodmare. Good sire. He was the best yearling they thought they had this year at Gainesway. We pretty much wanted him but so did somebody else.”
Dayatthespa, by City Zip, earned over $2.2 million. She earned Grade 1 victories in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf, the First Lady and the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup. Her first foal is a current 2-year-old which has not started.
The bay colt sold Thursday was consigned by Gainesway, agent for Stonestreet Bred & Raised. Stonestreet purchased Dayatthespa for $1.2 million at the 2014 Fasig-Tipton November Sale, soon after the mare won her Breeders’ Cup title.
