$1.55 Million Informed Patriot Tops Fasig July Horses of Racing Age Sale

Informed Patriot | Fasig-Tipton

Informed Patriot (Hard Spun), just two days removed from a third-place finish in the GIII Indiana Derby, brought the Fasig-Tipton July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale to a crescendo when selling for $1.55 million to Prince Saud bin Salman Abdulaziz. Bloodstock agent Ibrahim Rachid made the winning bid on behalf of the prince and said the sophomore would be aimed at next year's G1 Saudi Cup.

Campaigned by J Kirk and Judy Robison and trained by Steve Asmussen, Informed Patriot was purchased for $90,000 as a Keeneland September sale. He was third in last year's GIII Street Sense Stakes and won this spring's Bathhouse Row Stakes. He is a full-brother to GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile winner Spun to Run.

The colt's seven-figure price tag was a sales record for the July auction.
