Ghostly Moves Colt Brings $59,500 to Top NM-Bred Thoroughbred Yearling Sale
RSS Feeds Sunday, August 19, 2012
An unnamed colt by the Silver Ghost stallion Ghostly Moves sold for $59,500 to top Saturday's New Mexico-Bred Thoroughbred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs.

The gray or roan colt was consigned to the sale by A & A Ranch of Anthony, New Mexico, and the purchase ticket was signed by Joe Dee Brooks, Scott Bryant, Lee Lewis, and Dale F. Taylor. The colt's dam, Explosive Peaches, is a 13-year-old winning daughter of the Explodent stallion Explosive Red who has produced three winners from as many starters, including 2009 Copper Top Futurity (R) winner Explosive Mine, and Red Peaches, a filly by Ghostly Moves who ran third in the '07 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park.

A & A Ranch also consigned the second-highest seller, an unnamed brown colt by the Artax stallion Diabolical who was acquired for $51,000 by Taylor, Mike Henson, and Alan and Melanie Miller. The colt is out of Parting, a stakes-winning and Grade 3-placed daughter of Hay Halo, and his half brother, Attila's Parting, scored a one-length victory in the June 19, $75,000 Totah Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.

Taylor was also part of the group, along with Brooks, Bryant, Lewis, and Ted Rushing, that purchased an unnamed Attila's Storm filly for $45,000 during the sale's select session. The bay filly was consigned by Crystal Springs Farm of Tularosa, New Mexico, and her dam, the Gone Hollywood mare Icy Hollywood, is a half sister to Icy Lane, the winner of the 2004 La Senora Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

More detailed sale results, including averages and comparisons to last year's sale, will appear in the October issue of the New Mexico Horse Breeders magazine. Click here for complete results of the sale by hip number.
