Bridlewood Farm colt brings $500,000 at Fasig-Tipton July of Selected Yearlings

Gainesway consigned the Florida-bred colt who was born and raised at John Malone’s Bridlewood Farm in Ocala. He is the second foal from the Speightstown mare Jotown  and a half brother to Spiralizer  (Twirling Candy  ), who won his first time out June 13 in a maiden special weight at Churchill Downs. The colt’s dam is out of the Pioneerof the Nile mare and graded-stakes winner Jojo Warrior .

George Isaacs, general manager of Bridlewood Farm, had high hopes for the homebred colt by Maclean’s Music  , and he was rewarded July 9 at the Fasig-Tipton July Selected Yearlings Sale. The hammer dropped at $500,000 for Hip 170, the highest price of the sale.

“I personally thought he was the type that could potentially be a sale-topping type colt. I hope we stay at that level,” said Isaacs. “But needless to say, it’s an awesome result and we’re tickled to death.”

John Stewart with Resolute Racing signed the winning ticket. Since 2023, Resolute has spent more than $25 million at public auction, boldly stating its presence on the racetrack and in the sales ring.

“He (Hip 170) was one of the top five colts that we came here to buy,” said Stewart.

The chestnut colt will head to the farm to be evaluated until the fall. He will then be sent to WinStar Farm to prep for the races the following year.
