Speightster Colt Lights it Up Late at OBS


Speightster | Sarah Andrew

A New York-bred colt from the first crop of Speightster lit up the board late Friday at OBS as he garnered a $1.1-million final bid from Christina Jelm, who was acting on behalf of Larry Best’s OXO Equine LLC. Consigned by Tom McCrocklin as hip 1312, the :20 4/5 breezer turned in a strong gallop out that caught plenty of eyes. A supplemental entry to the OBS Spring sale, the son of MSP Auspicious (Indian Charlie)–already named Fortunate Son–was a $110,000 Saratoga York-bred yearling purchase by McCrocklin.
