Maryland-breds sold at Keeneland

July 21, 1993|By Ross Peddicord

There was not much of a markup when the Maryland-bred half-sister to $2 million earner Safely Kept sold at the Keeneland (Ky.) sales on Monday.

Baltimore county breeder David Hayden originally sold the Dayjur-Safely Home filly as a weanling last fall for $330,000 to William O. Reed. When Reed re-sold her Monday, she brought $350,000.

The purchasers were Robert and Beverly Lewis of Pomona, Calif. A Keeneland spokesman said the Lewises are clients of trainer D. Wayne Lukas.

One other Maryland-bred was sold during the first three of the four sessions. Eastern Shore breeder Wiley Tuttle sold a half-brother sired by Phone Trick to Maryland-bred stakes winner Smart Alec for $75,000.

So far, the top price has been $1,050,000 paid for a son of Mr. Prospector by John Gaines. A Keeneland spokesman said the average after three sessions is down about 12 percent from a year ago.
