A Galaxy Guardian, a Corona Cartel colt consigned by Julianna Hawn Holt, sold for $320,000 to top the second day of the three-day Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs.

Judd Kearl signed the ticket for A Galaxy Guardian. The colt is out of Higher Fire, a 14-year-old daughter of Walk Thru Fire and the sport's champion 2-year-old in 2005, and he is a full brother to two stakes placed colts, including 2014 Los Alamitos Super Derby (G1) runner-up Highest Fire.

The sale concludes on Sunday.
