A filly by Speightster turned in the fastest furlong work of Sunday's under-tack show ahead of the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's October Sale. The juvenile (hip 50), consigned by Julie Davies, covered the distance in :10 1/5. She is out of Bern Legacy (Bernstein), a half-sister to graded placed Centrique (Malibu Moon). A $55,000 Keeneland November purchase, the bay filly RNA'd for $70,000 at last year's Fasig-Tipton October sale.
Three 2-year-olds shared the day's fastest quarter-mile work: a filly by Candy Ride (Arg) (hip 2, :21 1/5) consigned by Top Line Sales; a gelding by Uncaptured (hip 35, :21 1/5) consigned by Ocala Stud; and a colt by Empire Maker (hip 39, :21 1/5) also consigned by Top Line Sales.
The 4-year-old filly, Annette's Humor (Shackleford) (hip 56), turned in the day's fastest three furlongs, covering the distance in :33 1/5. A colt by Anchor Down (hip 44) had the fastest three-furlong work (:33 2/5) by a 2-year-old.
The October sale begins Tuesday at noon with an offering of 59 2-year-olds and horses of racing age followed by an offering of selected yearlings. The auction continues Wednesday with a session of open yearlings which begins at 10:30 a.m.
