 The six-figure prices for yearlings that were not present on Friday night, the first night of the Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, showed up on Saturday night with seven offerings reaching the six-figure level.

On the sale’s first night, four yearlings reached $100,000 with the session’s high-seller selling for $130,000. Four yearlings brought more than $130,000 on the second night.

This increase on the second night caused the price per horse sold (final) to jump from $29,294 on the first night to $38,588 on the second night.

Leading the way on the second night at $300,000 was Eye Am King, a striking son of Mr Jess Perry and Eye For Corona. He was consigned by MJ Farms, agent and purchased by HWD Racing.

Eye For Corona, an earner of $1.1 million, was among the best of her generation with a win in the Grade 1 Golden State Million Futurity and seconds in the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Two Million and the Grade 1 Ed Burke Million.

Eye Am King is full brother to stakes winner Dr Jess and half-brother to stakes winner Ultimate Wave.

The second high-seller at $210,000 was One Mighty Eagle, a son of One Famous Eagle and Kates Dynasty. This is the first foal out of champion two-year-old filly Kates Dynasty.
           
Kates Dynasty, an earner of $572,882, won the Grade 1 Texas Classic Futurity to secure her championship.

One Mighty Eagle was consigned by Juliana Hawn Holt and bought by Shirley Richardson.

Call Me Cole was the third high-seller at $150,000. The Corona Cartel colt is out of stakes winner and Hialeah Park 440-yard track-record setter Little Surfer. The second dam is broodmare of the year Runaway Wave, the dam of world champion Wave Carver and two-time champion Ocean Runaway.
