This is hip#345 from the OBS yearling sale and part of the 2019-2020 Wasabi Ventures Stables Yearling Supplement.
The target is to race this yearling in the Wasabi Ventures Stables racing program.
This Kentucky-bred, and soon to be Virginia-certified Flat Out filly has a lovely conformation (see notes below on conformation).
The horse vetted cleanly at the auction and has already moved to Middleburg Training Center for training in Virginia.
Notes on conformation at the sale from Director of Racing Operations, Adam Parker:
We found the filly’s balance and wonderful top-line both contributed to her athletic physique. Her legs were straight with good length and angle of pastern. She walked well in hand and her size was impressive, taking into consideration her May foaling date. Her vet work was clean and she scoped great! This filly is a complete package and represents a real value at this price.
NOTE on PRICING:
Per our program, the horse was purchased for $10,000 and gets the apportioned part of the sales expenses ($1,250) to reach the offering price of $11,250.
Per program rules, there will be four quarterly charges that are done automatically to a purchasers credit card. Each charge will be for a pre-payment of training fees and will be at the rate of $60/quarter per 1%. These charges actually count in our accounting system as a credit on the side of revenue and will offset any costs on the exit of the horse.
Like our racing program, there will be no on-going expenses and no chance of any other losses beyond these initial charges.
Note on NAMING:
This filly will be named in her 2 YO year. Anyone that is a Club member owner of her will be part of the voting process on her name.
This Pedigree Report is written by Lauren Floyd, Blood Stock Apprentice, Wasabi Ventures Stables:
Hip 345 is a lovely filly by Flat Out, out of the Bowman's Band mare, Bowmans Girl. Flat Out, by Flatter, earned over $3.6 million on the track from ages 2 to 7 and was a three-time Grade 1 winner.
Bowmans Girl was a hard-knocking mare who was 14 times in the money in 44 starts with 4 wins and earnings of over $105,000. She won on dirt between 6F and a mile-and-70-yards. This filly is her first foal, although she was bred back to Palace Malice and Get Stormy for a 2020 foal.
Hip 345's second dam is Timeintown, a stakes winning mare by Cape Town. In 7 career starts, she secured 2 wins and 2 second place finishes to earn just shy of $60,000 in purse money. She debuted as a June 2yo at Churchill Downs at 4.5F on dirt and romped home by 4 lengths. In just her second career race, she won the Juan Gonzalez Memorial Stakes by over 3 lengths at 5F on dirt. She later finished 2nd in the Bustles and Bows Stakes going 6.5F on dirt. Bowmans Girl was her most successful progeny to race.
The mating that produced this filly is rated an A on TrueNicks, based on the cross of Flatter and his sons with mares by sons of Northern Dancer. This cross has produced an impressive 8% stakes winners to starters, with an even higher percentage of those stakes winners coming from fillies.
