The American Ideal colt Make My Deo fronted the 300 yearlings selling during the second session of the Standardbred Horse Sale at Harrisburg, PA on Tuesday, Nov. 5 when selling for the highest tag on the day: $280,000.

Trainer Robert Cleary purchased the half-brother to another horse he trains (Rodeo Rock) for Royal Wire Products, led by Bill Peshina.

“He’s a nice horse,” Peshina said about Make My Deo. “We bought Rodeo Rock as a yearling too and he’s done just fine for us. This is a very nice colt, so we were happy to get him. I liked just about everything about him; he’s just a nice horse all around. And it’s a good farm we bought him from, they’re good people.

“It’s a big expense for us, we’ve never gone that high before. We’re going to see what happens. Hopefully it works out. We’ll find out next year.”

Ake Svanstedt purchased the second most-expensive yearling of the day with Delayed Hanover, a colt from the first crop of Southwind Frank out of Dont Wait Up. Svanstedt paid $230,000 to buy the colt for owner Melby Gard.

“I liked everything, it was good,” Svanstedt said of the colt. “He is a good-looking horse. It will be interesting to see how he does on the racetrack. He has good conformation and the family on the mother is also very good. He is a good colt.”

Earlier in the afternoon Donna Soprano sold for what became the third-highest price of the day when Serge Godin’s Determination Inc. purchased the Donato Hanover filly—out of O’Brien Award winner Windsong Soprano—for $190,000.

Dana Parham bought the fourth-highest purchase of the day when bidding $170,000 for Sun B Kini, a filly from the first crop of world champion Always B Miki. Then a pair of $160,000 rounded the top of the Tuesday charts with Oh My Goodness, an Andover Hall filly, selling to Rene Allard and Betting Line colt Abuckabett Hanover going to Tony Alagna.

The Standardbred Horse Sale continues Wednesday, Nov. 6 with the final session of strictly yearlings. The sale concludes with a two-day mixed sale on Thursday (Nov. 7) and Friday (Nov. 8). The sale starts each day at 10 a.m. (EST).
