Flashy Colt by Exciting First-Crop Sire
This Ontario-bred colt is by a sire who is creating tremendous buzz around the industry. The Collecteds have been very well-received and love both a colt we’ve had in training all winter with Eddie Woods and a filly with Barry Eisaman. The son of City Zip had 22 six-figure first crop yearlings in 2021.
Collected won first time out as a 2-year-old going short on the grass before going on prestigious races like the Sham (G3) and Lexington (G3) with his marquis win coming in the 2017 Pacific Class (G1). A sound, durable, versatile horse, he retired sound with a record of eight wins, two seconds, and a third from 15 career starts and earnings of just shy of $3 million.
From the female family of graded stakes winner Archarcharch, this colt is an Ontario-bred who is eligible for a series of lucrative stakes races, including the prestigious Queen’s Plate run every summer at Woodbine. Anderson Farms in Canada bred this colt as well as West Point’s grade one winner Hard Not To Love.
Cherie DeVaux is making a name for herself quickly. The longtime Chad Brown assistant is well known for her patience and excellent work with grade 1 winner Lady Eli. After going out on her own, Cherie has started horses in the Kentucky Oaks and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and is attracting well-respected owners such as West Point, Lael Stable (owners of Barbaro), CRK Stable, Dixiana Farms, and Hinkle Farms.
“He was one of the best-looking horses in the entire sale,” said Terry Finley. “I’m very high on the sire and think this pedigree presents a neat blend of turf, dirt, and synthetic influence. Cherie is a very hands-on horsewoman who is a great communicator.”
“I’m really excited to have a colt like this in the barn,” said DeVaux. “West Point has some fillies headed my way, but this is the first colt. I’m ready and willing to send him to Canada to compete in the big races up there, but I think he has the quality needed to compete with the best open company horses. He’s really a lovely individual who will be easy to spot on the track with that gorgeous white face!”
Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2023.
