American Chocolate, a sharp-looking daughter of American Ideal consigned by Eldred Nicholson, topped the 2015 Atlantic Classic Yearling Sale on Friday. The sale recorded the second highest gross in history behind the 2014 record-setter.

American Chocolate, Hip 79, was purchased for $18,000 by Claude Poirier of Magdalen Island, Que. The daughter of American Ideal is the third foal out of the Bluegrass Stakes winning Artiscape mare Chocolate Art ($237,378 - 1:53.1).

The top Atlantic sired filly was Woodmere Dreams, Hip 14, purchased for $15,500 by Doug Hill of Charlottetown, P.E.I. Consigned by ‎Woodmere Farms, the filly is sired by Articulator and is the first foal out of the Western Ideal mare Oh Pretty Leigh, who is a half-sibling to stallion Jeremes Jet ($1,659,413, 1:47).

Cowboys Dont Cry and Woodmere Soul were sold back-to-back for $15,000 each as Hips 23 and 24. Charlottetown's Reg MacPherson had the winning bid on the Meridian Farm-bred Cowboys Dont Cry while Daniel Ross of Belfast, P.E.I. purchased Woodmere Soul from the Woodmere Farms consignment.

Cowboys Dont Cry is a son of Brandons Cowboy. He is the second foal out of Mall Shook Up, who is a half-sibling to recent Liberty Bell Series winner Allbeef N Nobull ($177,267, 1:50.2).
