Amo Racing Raises The Roof at Saratoga, Pays $1.1M For Quality Road Colt

Quality Road's $1.1-million colt Monday night, Hip 77 | Fasig-Tipton

Alex Elliott and Ben McElroy, acting as agents for Kia Joorabchian's Amo Racing, accounted for the first seven-figure offering Monday at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga, going to $1.1 million to acquire hip 77 from the consignment of Gainesway, agent for Barbara Banke's Stonestreet Bred & Raised. The March-foaled bay is a son of I'm a Looker (Henny Hughes), winner during her racing days of the GIII Winning Colors S. en route to bankrolling better than $316,000. Stonestreet acquired the March foal's dam for $475,000 at the 2017 Keeneland November Sale and sold her Curlin filly for $525,000 at last year's Keeneland September Sale. Amo Racing has tasted success at the races on either side of the Atlantic this season. In Europe, Valiant Force (Malibu Moon) registered a 150-1 shocker in the G2 Norfolk S. at Royal Ascot, while King of Steel (Wootton Bassett {GB}) was victorious in the G2 King Edward VII S. at the Royal Meeting after finishing second in the G1 Betfred Derby. He was a latest third in the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Diamond S. In the U.S., Amo was recently represented by New York Thunder (Nyquist), smashing winner of the GII Amsterdam S. at Saratoga.
