They weren't paying for the pedigree.

They were paying for the individual and the impressive breeze.

Anyone thinking residual value for a son of Flatter would be making a mistake. Even a graded stakes winning son of Flatter is going to have minimal stallion value unless somthing dramatic happens with Flatter's reputation.

So with residual value out of the equation pedigree is a lot less important.

Does seem like a lot to pay when the odds of that horse turning them a profit based on earnings are a real longshot. But the buyer is rich enough that return on investment isn't as much a concern as a chance to be in the winners circle after winning some important races.

So glory is probably a more motivating factor than return on investment. And there had to be at least one other rich glory seeker bidding on the horse for the price to get that high.

Anytime you get these high prices - ego is a major driving force and not common sense.

Because Excellent breeding does not always equal Excellent Athlete or Race Horse... They may be looking for an athlete and this horse may fit such description

Actually, in my mind, the question is actually: What would this individual have brought if he'd had a really GOOD pedigree? $2-3 million? More?

Since he went for $925K it's a solid bet that he is physically outstanding and really looks the part. So if he'd been by, say, Street Cry or Empire Maker, out of a great mare, what would his price have been?

2 year old sales are always a throw the book out and look at the horse type sale. Talent can outrun pedigree all day long.

Let's see if this latest Eisaman speedster can out run history....


CTBAboardwatch

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

March 14, 2011 Now in our sixth year of watching out for you

Perhaps the most prolific consignor of two-year-olds in the country is Dr. Barry Eisaman. Selling under the EISAMAN EQUINE banner his collection of pinhooked yearlings usually exceeds several dozen in the Florida sales.

EISAMAN consignees often record the fastest preview times This year's OBS March sale is no exception; it's FLATTER colt and DIXIE UNION filly each recorded the preview's best times of :20 3/5.

We decided to examine the 'Past Performances' of Eisaman's previous OBS March Sale two-year-olds whose workouts also topped the sale. (US earnings only).

Baffert was behind this one and of course the infamous 2.7 million Sea of Secrets colt (Diamond Fury) that sold in Barretts Mar 2003, who has subsequently earned $135K (no black type earnings). I believe Sea of Secrets was a $5K stallion at the time. I'm sure Diamond looked to be a "Cannon" as well.

It's hard for me to come to grips with but if you have the that type of money to throw around, eventually you'll hit pay dirt (I guess). Lets not talk about the $600K Swiss Yodeler, "Swissle Stick".

as long as you're selling horses you can only hope, wish, & pray for so long for someone with bottomless pockets to come around :).. and when they do, no one refuses there money.

Heck flashpoint AND big brown were both around 200k which sounds like a bargain considering how good they are, but when you consider that one was by boundary and the other by pomeory both 5k sires, that's a LOT of coin.

IN fact those are the high sale prices type horses I look or in the form, not just high prices but high pries out of not so flatting pedigrees. you see an unforgettable max that costs 200k, that's the type of horse you need to look twice at first time out.

He was an impressive individual and I know several "less well funded" groups were after him and thought they could get him for less than 200k but when they big guys got involved they were out of luck. With the focus on that guy a couple really nice horses were stolen. Pletcher got a Tiznow that should have brought big money if things hadn't been so distracting. The 400k Smart Strike chestnut colt was a monster. He was over 17h already.

What is this fascination with 17 hand + 2 year olds? God knows what growth hormones they've been given. I wouldn't want an 18.2 hand 3 year year old. The jock would need a ladder to mount, leg up or no.

Discounting shipping and training expenses, the $33k winner's purse now makes the Brigand investment worth $892K to date.
We are now in the position to watch, while Bob does his magic for Kaleem, turning the colt into a classic winner, or after four starts sending him to stud in Kentucky. Stay tuned and keep this thread running.


Owner: Kaleem Shah
Breeder: Berkshire Stud
State Bred: NY
Winnings: 1 Starts: 1 - 0 - 0, $33,000

FTS(NY)Aug10:$90K; OBSMAR11:$925K.
Won debut 3Jul11 at Hollywood, 5.5f MSW.
