The April 16-19 Under Tack Show for the OBS 2013 Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds sale concluded with several juveniles by Journeyman Stud stallions making a big impression in advance of the April 22-25 auction.

On day 2, it was a pair of fillies by Journeyman stallion who posted session-best times of 9 4/5 seconds. Hip No. 594, by Wildcat Heir, also consigned by de Meric, is out of Leah's Angel, making her a half-sister to Grade 3 Chaposa Springs S. winner Expect An Angel.
The second filly, hip No. 440 by Cowtown Cat, is from the McCathan Brothers consignment. The Florida bred chestnut is out of the stakes-placed mare Goodbye Beautiful, who in turn is a half-sister to a trio of stakes winners.
