Spendthrift Australia shuttler Jimmy Creed (USA) has topped Session 8 of the fortnight-long Keeneland November Sale with a foal that made $110,000.
The colt from Jimmy Creed’s first crop was purchased by Alistair Roden who bought him as a pin-hook prospect for next year’s yearling sales. The Irish born agent worked at stud farms all over the world including Australia and New Zealand before settling in Kentucky.
The Jimmy Creed colt was bred by Hidden Springs Farm and is from Saratoga stakes winner Judy Soda (Personal Flag). Her first foal Germaniac (Henny Hughes) won the LR Frank Whiteley Stakes at Laurel.
“He’s a big boy and a head turner,” bloodstock consultant Frances Karon said. “There’s a whole lotta horse here.”
Jimmy Creed also had two filly foals make $55,000 at Keeneland. The trio are from his first crop conceived after a 10-start career for Spendthrift owner B. Wayne Hughes. He won the G1 Malibu Stakes (1400m) at Santa Anita and was being set for the G1 Breeders’ Cup Sprint before an ankle injury forced him into retirement.
Spendthrift stands Jimmy Creed (Distorted Humor) at its Romsey farm for a “Share The Upside” fee of $11,000 (inc gst). He is also available at $8,800 (inc gst) on a standard live foal contract.
