Episode 3 pays a visit to the Ohio Thoroughbred Breeders & Owners Sale, coming up October 7.
The sale is a mixed sale — but it’s yearling season, and I zoom in on Hip 33, a yearling filly by new Ohio sire Cryptolight out of the Shakespeare mare Be True. Cryptolight is a rarity in the stud barn nowadays, a horse to raced to age 11. Both his female family and Be True’s pop up frequently in state-bred stakes ranks, though some close dam-side relatives have shown up in stakes races in New York and California, too.
