Hip 26, a filly from the first crop of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah and out of MGISW Life At Ten (Malibu Moon), became the first yearling to cross the seven-figure threshold during Monday’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga session as Larry Best of OXO Equine fended off all challengers with a $1.2-million winning bid. A $500,000 KEENOV weanling acquisition by Blue Sky Stables, the Mar. 22 foal was consigned by Gainesway, Agent VI. Best’s stable is already well-stocked with juveniles, including ‘TDN Rising Stars’ Brill (Medaglia d’Oro out of a Malibu Moon mare) and Instagrand (Into Mischief). Earlier in the session, a colt by American Pharoah (hip 10), was bought back for $800,000.
