A New York-bred colt from the first crop of Spendthrift’s Shakin It Up (Midnight Lute) breezed a bullet quarter-mile in :20 3/5 Friday at the fifth session of the OBS April Sale’s under-tack show. Consigned by Hoppel’s Horse and Cattle Co, Hip 936 was purchased by owner and pinhooker Aron Yagoda for $32,000 at the Fasig-Tipton October sale (click here for feature on Yagoda).

It was a good day for Shakin It Up, who was also represented by a :20 4/5 breezer in Hip 913, a filly from the consignment of Eddie Woods. She was one of eight juveniles to work in :20 4/5 Friday.

The fastest furlong breeze of :9 4/5 was shared by a New-York bred son of Flatter (Hip 824) consigned by his breeder Off the Hook; and a Florida-bred colt by Mark Valeski (Hip 873), who also consigned by his breeder Woodford Thoroughbreds.
