Maryland Bred Champions

It's not often that I get to talk about Maryland bred champions, but last week 4 were sold at the Fasig-Tipton, (Kentucky) November select mixed sale.

2005 champion 2-year-old filly, Celestial Legend sold as a broodmare prospect for $235,000 to Paragon Farms LLC. The daughter of City Zip had her last started in May. She won 6 of her 9 career starts, and earned $213,730.

1998 champion 2-year-old filly Magic Broad sold in foal to Purge. She was purchased by Thomas Bachman for $160,000. Magic Broad, a daughter of Broad Brush won the Grade 3 Selima Stakes during her championship season.

He Loves Me, a daughter of Not for Love earned her championship title by winning five stakes and placing second in the Grade 1 Gazelle Handicap in 2004. She earned $355,698 during her racing career, and was sold (carrying her first foal by Unbridled's Song) for $275,000 to James T. Scatuorchio.

Maryland-bred Grade 1 winner and Grade 1 producer Hookedonthefeelin made headlines selling for $2.9 million. She was a graded stakes winner at 2, won the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes at 3. By the time she retired early in her 5-year-old season she had 10 stakes wins or placings, and earned $488,554. She was named Maryland-bred champion filly at 3 and champion older mare at 4. Hookedonthefeelin produced as her first foal Pussycat Doll, the winner of the 2005 La Brea Stakes and the Grade 1 Humana Distaff Handicap this spring. Hookedonthefeelin (in foal to Distorted Humor) was sold as part of the ClassicStar dispersal. Jess Jackson's Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings LLC was the buyer.
