Amer Abdulaziz’s Phoenix Thoroughbreds was extended to $825,000 to acquire hip 240, a colt by Bernardini as the first session of the OBS March Sale neared its conclusion Tuesday afternoon.
The dark bay is a son of Inish Glora (Regal Classic), a two-time Sovereign Award-winning turf female in Canada and dam of five winners from seven to race, including MSW Roan Inish (Elusive Quality) and GSP In Equality (Quality Road). Bred by Robert Costigan in partnership with Godolphin, the Apr. 6 foal was a $270,000 Keeneland November weanling and returned to the same sales ring last September, selling to Scott and Evan Dilworth for $275,000 as a yearling. Hip 240 was consigned to the March sale by Raul Reyes’s King’s Equine as agent.
