A colt by Good Samaritan (Hip 177) worked the fastest quarter-mile in :20 3/5 on the opening day of the OBS March 2-Year-Old in Training Sale's three-day breeze show Thursday.

“He has done things on the racetrack that only a few horses have done that we had our hands on,” said Joe Pickerrell of consignor Pick View. “We were going to be very disappointed if he didn't work like that.”

Bred by St. Elias Stable, the gray is out of Sweat and Saddle (Speightstown), a daughter of GSW & MGISP Well Monied (Maria's Mon). This is also the family of GSW & GISP Economic Model (Flatter) and Will's Secret (Will Take Charge). An $82,000 KEENOV buy, he was picked up by the Pick View team for $120,000 at KEESEP.

“We obviously liked quite a bit about to stretch on him,” Pickerrell said. “The whole team kept landing on this horse. He is a good mover with a lot of stretch to him. He was a horse we felt would not only handle the 2-year-old sale well, but go on to do some good things. We've always been a big fan of Harlan's Holiday and with Speightstown on the bottom, it made him extra attractive. The intelligence this horse has is probably his biggest strength. Not only is he wicked fast, but the amount of class he has has been fun to watch.”

He continued, “Scott Mallory did a great job with him at the yearling sale and we had to do was keep him looking that good and keep him growing. That is exactly what he did. He is a bigger version of what we bought.”

The fastest furlong was achieved by a Bayern colt (Hip 139), who went in :9 3/5 for Really and Truly Thoroughbreds. Bred in Florida by Caperlane Farm, he was picked up by Rubin Sanchez for $12,000. The colt's second dam is SW & MGSP Amie's Dini (Bandini).

The under-tack show was cut off early due to poor weather and the final set will be worked into Friday's breeze show, which starts at 8 a.m.
