Hip 49, a colt by Tapit out of two-time Grade I-placed Miss Besilu (Medaglia d’Oro), hammered for $2.6 million to Mandy Pope to set a new high price at Monday’s Book 1 session of the Keeneland September yearling sale. The gray’s dam–who herself sold for $2.6 million as a weanling to Besilu Stables at the 2011 Keeneland November Sale–is a half-sister to Horse of the Year Saint Liam (Saint Ballado) and Quiet Giant (Giant’s Causeway), dam of MGISW Gun Runner (Candy Ride {Arg}). Hip 49 was bred in Kentucky by Besilu Stables and Three Chimneys Farm.
