(Grand Prairie, Texas) A colt by Straight Fire was worth the wait at the 2022 Texas Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale breeze show Monday.
Cataloged in the supplement as Hip 144, the colt was the last horse on the track Monday afternoon, delivering the fastest 1/8th of a mile breeze, stopping the clock in 10.1 on the Lone Star Park oval. Consigned by Pike Racing as agent, the LNJ Foxwood-bred colt is out of the Excellent Art mare Luckfromabove (IRE); her first foal to race, a full sister to this colt, is a winner.
Six horses collected a 10.2 clocking over the dirt at Lone Star Park, all tying for the second fastest 1/8th of the day:
Hip 56: Filly by Conquest Mo Money out of the Northern Afleet mare Afleet Tee, consigned by Benchmark Training Center, Agent for Judge Lanier Racing
Hip 68: Colt by Midshipman out of the Harlan’s Holiday mare Capital Deployment, consigned by Pike Racing, Agent.
Hip 69: Filly by Accelerate out of G2SW Ciao Bella Luna, consigned by Pike Racing, Agent
Hip 72: Colt by McCraken out of SP Conjuress, consigned by Pike Racing, Agent

Hip 134: Filly by Free Drop Billy out of the Half Ours mare Solo Buena, consigned by Carl Deville, Agent
“I think the quality horses the consignors sent to us for this sale really put on a show today,” TTA Sales Director Foster Bridewell said. “The last horse to breeze drops the bullet, we had six go 10.2, and 17 stopped the timer in 10.3; that’s a testament to the horses and the training leading up. We owe a debt of gratitude to the folks that trust us to sell for them and we’re thankful for the consignors who have brought these athletes to this sale.”
