The Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Ontario Division) Winter Mixed Sale held Nov. 24 at the Woodbine Sales Pavilion in Toronto, Ontario, closed with across-the-board gains, led by a weanling colt by Kentucky sire Violence.
A total of 81 horses were cataloged, resulting in 54 sold for a total gross of $156,700 (Canadian dollars) up from $151,700 in 2017. The average increased by five percent from $2,758 to $2,902 with the median increasing by 54 percent to $2,000 from $1,300.
Hip 39 a dark bay colt by Violence topped the sale, hammering for $17,000. The colt, out of the placed Tiznow mare, Tiz Shopping, was purchased by Matthew Brouwer and consigned by Ballycroy Training Centre.
Bred in Ontario, the colt is from the family of Grade 1 winners Miss Shop and Power Broker, as well as G2 winner Trappe Shot.
Hip 63, a chestnut filly by Society's Chairman sold for $9,500, brought the second highest price. The filly, out of the winning Gilded Time mare, Jazz Life, was purchased by Mike De Paulo and consigned by Shannondoe Farm, agent. Also bred in Ontario, the filly's page features Argentine G1 winner Life For Sale and Southern Hemisphere G2 winners Ilsanpietro, Farenheit, and La Francaise.
The auction's most expensive broodmare was Hip 10, Cloudline, an unraced Cherokee Run mare who sold to Andrew Smith, as agent for Joey Gee Thoroughbreds, for $7,500. Shannondoe Farm also consigned the mare, as agent.
Cloudline is the dam of two runners, and she was offered in-foal to Society's Chairman, with a complementary season to Dynamic Sky in 2019. She is out of the unraced Green Dancer mare Rumba Punch, making her a half-sister to G3-placed stakes winner Lyin' Heart and G3-placed Ponder Lea.
