A 2-year-old filly by Firing Line topped the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society British Columbia Division's Horses of Racing Age Sale on March 14, selling to Jesse and Kim Morrison and Robin Sadler for $15,000 (Canadian).
The filly, named Be Cool, was one of 20 horses on offer at Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver, B.C. Of that group, 18 changed hands for a gross of $144,500 and an average sale price of $8,028.
Be Cool, offered as Hip 14, is from the first crop of juveniles by Firing Line, and she is the first foal out of the winning Uncle Mo mare Modiste. Bred in Kentucky by Usquebaugh Stables, Be Cool is from the family of Grade 1 winner Graydar, Grade 2-placed Union Course, and Grade 3-placed Star of David.
The filly previously sold for $13,000 (U.S. dollars) at last year's Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Yearling Sale.
Saturday's session-topper was consigned by the Hole in the Wall Gang, a joint venture of the CTHS British Columbia Division, the Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association of B.C., and the B.C. Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association (BCTOBA) formed to purchase yearlings and resell them in the province help fund industry programs.
As a condition of sale, the papers for horses offered from the Hole in the Wall Gang consignment will remain in the racing office at Hastings for the duration of the 2020 racing season at the track, and the horse is to race there exclusively through the end of the meet.
