Talla, West Point Strike for $1.05M Not This Time Colt

Hip 879 | Keeneland

Mike Talla and West Point Thoroughbreds partnered up to acquire a colt by Not This Time (hip 879) for $1.05 million from the St George Sales consignment Thursday at Keeneland. The yearling is out of Foreign Affair (Exchange Rate), a half-sister to multiple group winner So Perfect (Scat Daddy). He will be trained by John Sadler, who stood alongside West Point's Terry Finley during the bidding.

The colt was the fourth seven-figure purchase of the auction for West Point, which teamed with Chuck Sonson and Woodford to acquire the sale's $3-million top lot so far.

The colt was the second seven-figure pinhook for Archie and Michelle St George and their pinhooking partners. The group acquired hip 879 for $375,000 at last year's Keeneland November sale. Earlier in the sale, the partners sold a colt by Into Mischief (hip 283) for $1.8 million. That yearling had been purchased for $550,000 at Keeneland last November.
