Blue Maserati brings $100,000 at Harrisburg Horse Sale
Sugar Valley Farm co-owned Blue Maserati brought $100,000 on the first day of yearling sales at the Pennsylvania Farm and Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA.
Blue Maserati, went into the ring as Hip number 188 and when the hammer finally came down, Tony Alagna signed the $100,000 ticket.
On his maternal side, Blue Maserati featured some of the speediest and toughest pedigree in harness racing. A son of Sportswriter, Blue Maserati’s dam is Best Tussle, she a half sister to Hop Sing (1:48.3, $972,801), Shebestingin (1:47, $759,522) and a full sister to Bono Bests (1:49.3, $531,745). Blue Maserati is the second foal from Best Tussle, who has already produced Yellow Mustang, also by Sportswriter, who earned two wins as a freshman in 2015 and $18,266.
Co-owner Joe McLead had high praise for Blue Maserati, "All the stars lined up. He was really a perfect individual, and by the right sire in Canada. His conformation was perfect and he came from what I believe to be one of the best families in the sport.
We owned him in partnership with Winbak Farms and with us selling our second group of yearlings since we’ve been in existence it’s awful exciting to have something like that happen. I think it really speaks to the way we raise our horses, I believe it’s the way they’re supposed to be raised."
