Top-three First-Crop sire Bolt d’Oro continues to have success with his offspring in the sales ring as well as on the racetrack, the latest coming during Monday’s opening session of the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling sale when hip No. 37 sold for $400,000.
The bay colt was consigned by Denali Stud, agent for WinStar Farm and cataloged as hip No. 37. The winning bid was placed by the partnership of BSW, Crow Colts Group, Qatar Racing, F. Galvin, Gandharvi, and Martin Schwartz.
A bay Kentucky-bred, hip 37 is out of the Distorted Humor mare Notacat, who is a full sister to English Group 3 winner and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint S. placed Shumoos. The colt’s third dam is Spinaway S. (G1) and Matron S. (G1) winner Strategic Maneuver.
Bolt d’Oro has gotten off to a rousing start with his first crop of runners, already tallying nine winners and a pair of stakes horses.
Bolt d’Oro has an additional four lots in Tuesday’s closing session of the sale.
