Session Topper for America's Friend at OBS June
Hip No. 426, a daughter of The Factor consigned by Wavertree Stables, Inc. (Ciaran Dunne), Agent, went to East Hickman Bloodstock for $180,000 to top the second session of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2018 June Sale of Two-Year-Olds and Horses of Racing Age. The gray or roan filly, who worked a quarter in :20 4/5 at Friday’s session of the Under Tack Show, is out of stakes winner America’s Friend, by Unusual Heat, a full sister to graded stakes placed stakes winner Bel Air Sizzle and graded stakes placed Starspangled Heat. America's Friend won the 2008 Solana Beach Stakes at Del Mar and still holds the stakes record for that event. The filly is a 1/2 sister to a yearling colt by Mr. Speaker and a weanling colt by Palace Malice.
