A filly by Mendelssohn (hip 245) brought a final bid of $800,000 from Peter Fluor of Speedway Stables during Monday's first session of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale. The gray, who is out of stakes-placed Lady Hansen (Hansen), was consigned by Paul Sharp. Sharp purchased the filly as part of his pinhooking partnership with Liz Crow for $125,000 at last year's Keeneland September sale.
It was the second big purchase of the afternoon for Speedway, which also went to $500,000 to acquire a colt by Not This Time (hip 198) from the Pick View consignment.
