The first weanlings by G1 Vanderbilt winner Justin Phillip have been extremely well received by buyers at the Keeneland November Sales. Hip 2126, (photo left), a chesnut colt out of the Coronado's Quest mare Winter's Quest, led to a spirited bidding duel with Sobhy Sonbol evetually landing the attractive weanling, a half to the 2015 G1 placed Aripeka for $110,000. Hip 1968, a dark bay or brown filly out of the Storm Cat mare Mycatcandance was purchased by Damon Ming, Agent for $70,000. This gorgeous filly's dam is a full sister to G1 winner Consolidator and like the colt was consigned by Paramount Sales. Hip 2145, a particularly strong dark bay or brown colt out of the Foxhound mare Beautiful Stranger was knocked down to Brylynn Farm for $60,000. Consigned by Bluewater Sales, the colt's dam is a stakes winner and multiple stakes placed that has already produced a stakes winner and a stakes placed runner.
