Hip 162 | Keeneland

About three hours after selling the Tapit half-brother to GI Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist (Uncle Mo) for a session-leading $2.5 million, Hinkle Farms was back at it with another seven-figure transaction when Sheikh Hamdan’s Shadwell Estate Company Ltd. went to $1.05 million for hip 162, a son of Curlin–Transportation, by Giant’s Causeway. The April foal, acquired for $370,000 in utero at the 2017 Keeneland November sale, is out of a winning daughter of MSW & MGSP Alternate (Seattle Slew), the dam of MGSW Alternation (Distorted Humor)–sire of reigning GI Kentucky Oaks winner Serengeti Empress–as well as SW & GSP Interrupted (Broken Vow) and recent GI TVG Pacific Classic hero and Keeneland April HORA Sale graduate Higher Power (Medaglia d’Oro). The colt’s third dam includes former Pin Oak star and Canadian Horse of the Year Peaks and Valleys (Mt. Livermore).
