October 06, 1998|By Kent Baker | Kent Baker,SUN STAFF

An unnamed bay filly by Dehere brought a Maryland-record $400,000 yesterday at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic's Eastern Fall Yearling Sale at Timonium.

Purchased by Satish Sanan of Padua Stables in Ocala, Fla., a client of trainer D. Wayne Lukas, the filly's price shattered the previous state high by $165,000.

Out of Gold Issue, the filly was sold as a weanling at the Keeneland, Ky., sale last November for $235,000 to Mr. and Mrs. S. H. Rogers Jr.

The filly is out of the second crop of foals by Dehere, who won more than $723,000 at the track, including three Grade I events: the Champagne Stakes, Hopeful Stakes and 2nd Futurity Stakes.

Second in price at yesterday's session was Silver Ridan, a dark bay/brown filly by Silver Deputy out of Ridan Prospector. She sold for $172,000.

Altogether, seven horses sold for $100,000 or more and 47 went for $25,000 or higher on a highly successful first day. A total of 207 horses were purchased.

The average for the session was up 30 percent to $20,754 from $15,968 and gross sales increased 21 percent to nearly $4.3 million.

The sale concludes today, with about 300 horses available starting at 10 a.m.
