Another first-crop sire had a breakout sale early at OBS Wednesday, with bloodstock agent Mike Ryan going to $850,000 to secure a colt by GI Belmont S. winner Palace Malice. Ryan was bidding on behalf of owner Jeff Drown.

The colt, consigned by Pick View LLC, is out of Miss Always Ready (More Than Ready), a full-sister to graded stakes winner More Than Real. Purchased for $160,000 by Marquee Bloodstock at last year’s Keeneland September sale, he worked a quarter in :21 1/5 last week.
