Full sister to PLUM is top filly in FTM May sale’s first session
Topping all juvenile fillies sold at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training sale on the first day was Dark Hollow Farm’s chestnut daughter of Pure Prize out of the Not For Love mare Bamba. The full sister to 2011 Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old filly PLUM sold for $240,000 to renowned racing executive Charles Cella. Lynn Whiting, who trains the Cella horses, signed the ticket. Trainer Greg Gilchrist, of champion Lost in the Fog fame, was the underbidder.
Prepared by Niall Brennan Stables, agent, PLUM’s sister worked an eighth-mile in :10.60. Brennan told Thoroughbred Daily News before the sale: “For a May foal, she is a beautifully grown, balanced filly - tall, scopey, with a lot of length to her and tremendous substance. She doesn’t look like a May foal. She is a very elegant filly who gets over the track beautifully. Her full-sister can run and she worked out lovely on the racetrack and galloped out superbly. She is a two-turn filly with a lot of class and a big future ahead of her.”
The filly is the fifth foal out of stakes-placed Bamba, who was also bred by Dark Hollow Farm. Bamba’s four older foals are all winners - in addition to Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship Stakes winner PLUM, she is the dam of $148,130-earner U Boat Alley, $90,430-earner Marianotojorge, and current 3-year-old Raven’s Dance, who broke his maiden first time out this year.
Bamba produced a 2013 colt by Warrior’s Reward and is back in foal to Paddy O’Prado on a March 27 cover.
