Buoyed by a trio of six-figure juveniles, Wildcat Heir's average sale price of $66,417 at the April 22-25 OBS 2-year-olds in training sale was eight times his 2013 stud fee of $8,000. Wildcat Heir has been Florida's first or second ranked sire every year he has been at stud.
Wildcat Heir had a total of 12 horses sell at this week's auction, topped by hip No. 4, consigned by de Meric Sales, agent. The bay colt, who worked a session-topping eighth-mile in :09 4/5 seconds, was purchased for $180,000 by New Farm. The colt is the first foal out of the stakes-winning mare Additional Prayer.
Hip no. 807, a dark bay filly consigned by Indian Prairie Ranch, agent, sold for $125,000 to David Wolochuk. Named Ramona's Wildcat, the filly comes from the same family as Grade 1 Travers S. winner Annihilate 'em.
The six-figure sellers kept coming on the final day of the sale for Wildcat Heir when hip No. 1114, who was consigned by Journeyman Bloodstock, brought a winning bid of $110,000 from Jon Frankel. The colt, named Mojo Man, is out of the Distorted Humor mare Twisted Truth, the dam of the stakes-winning colt Sincero.
