Sharp Susan (m, 8, Touch Gold--Winter's Gone, by Dynaformer), winner of the GII Lake Placid S. and third in the GI Garden City S. in 2007 for the partnership of IEAH Stables and WinStar Farm, was knocked down to British-based Badgers Bloodstock for a final bid of A$1.05 million to top the opening session of the Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale Tuesday at the company's Newmarket complex. Sharp Susan was first offered as a racing/broodmare prospect at the Fasig-Tipton November Mixed Sale in 2008, fetching $2 million from Jon Freyer's Freyer Bloodstock on behalf of owner Paul Fleming. Turned over to Neil Drysdale, the mare was unplaced in two starts, was retired and bred to A.P. Indy and produced a colt in April 2010. That horse, now named Indiano Jones, was recently sold for $425,000 at the OBS March sale. Sharp Susan was sold on a Sept. 5 cover date to Street Cry (Ire). She was consinged by Tyreel Stud on behalf of the Dispersal of Paul Fleming Thoroughbreds.
