Sal says if you’re looking for a reason to open up your pocket book at the 2017 CTHS Alberta sale look no further than the Century Mile and its prospects for improved thoroughbred racing in the province of Alberta.
Shimshine, the winner of the Birdcatcher at Northlands Park on Saturday September 2, 2017 was by Wilko .
Sal says that there are a couple of Wilko’s available in the 2017 CTHS Alberta sale:
Gone West branch of Mr. Prospector line mare with same Northern Dancer branch on top as Suzette, winner of the Bird of Pay Stake at Northlands Park Friday, September 1, 2017.
Overanalyze is currently leading the 2017 First Crop Sire list.
The dame of the $1,000,000 Orb Colt is Flashy American by Flashy Bull, who sired the 2017 Canadian Derby winner, Chief Know it All and who stems from that superlative thoroughbred icon, Holy Bull, out of the Quiet American mare Inn Between.
As a broodmare sire, Quiet American is associated with 83 black-type winners, of which 33 are graded/group winners. He’s been represented by six black-type stakes winners so far this year (2016). Among his best are champion and leading sire Bernardini , also standing at Darley, and Horse of the Year Saint Liam. As a broodmare sire, his runners have earned more than $95 million.
Inn Between’s 2017 yearling is a bay filly by Gayego selling as Hip 68 in the 2017 CTHS Alberta Sale.
