A Top Line Sales-consigned Candy Ride (Arg) half-sister to Eclipse Award-winning sprinter Drefong (Gio Ponti) was purchased by Japan’s Northern Farm for $675,000 Tuesday afternoon at the OBS March Sale (ThoroStride video). Northern Farm is the stallion home of Drefong. The Jan. 25 foal was bred in Kentucky by Machmer Hall, Carrie and Craig Brogden, who acquired the filly’s dam Eltimaas (Ghostzapper) for $77,000 in foal to Mizzen Mast at Keeneland November in 2013. Through the Select Sales agency, Machmer Hall sold the dark bay to Carlo Vaccarezza for $300,000 at last year’s Keeneland September sale. Produced by a half-sister to champion and GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Action This Day (Kris S.), hip 147 also hails from the female family of GISW Cannock Chase (Lemon Drop Kid).
