A trio of three-year-old fillies topped the final mixed session of the 2015 Standardbred Horse Sales Company Annual Sale, each selling for more than $200,000 on Friday at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.

Trotting filly Katniss, Hip 1559, was the first to garner a bid of $210,000 during the second mixed sale session.

Purchased by Diamond Creek Farm of Wellsville, Pennsylvania from the Northwood Bloodstock consignment, the daughter of Credit Winner is out of the Donerail mare Armbro Deja Vu, who is a half-sister to Manofmanymissions ($1,213,603 - 1:52.1). Katniss' siblings include Dejarmbro ($1,135,123- 1:52.2) and the Chocolatier filly Shared Past ($416,606 - Q1:53).

Katniss is a winner of three races in 17 starts and $65,953 in purses. She took her mark of 1:53 in an elimination of the Empire Breeders Classic at Vernon Downs this past June.

Pacing fillies Band Of Angels and Safe From Terror, both previously campaigned by Ron Burke, were also $210,000 sale purchases.

Selling as Hip 1567 from the Preferred Equine Marketing consignment, Band Of Angels was purchased by Willow Oak Ranch of Rogersville, Tennessee.

The Rock N Roll Heaven-Time N Again filly was this year's New York Sire Stakes Championship winner. A career earner of $485,415, Band Of Angels won 12 of her 27 starts and took her 1:50 mark in an elimination of the Mistletoe Shalee at The Meadowlands in July.

She is a half-sister to the American Ideal filly Romantic Moment ($1,077,352 - 1:50.1).

Safe From Terror, Hip 1586, was purchased by Jim Arledge Jr. of Orient, Ohio, acting as agent, from the Preferred Equine Marketing consignment.

She won half of her 22 starts this year (12-for-32 lifetime) to push her career bankroll to $482,242. Her highlights include victories in the Pennsylvania Sires Stakes Championship and the Nadia Lobell in a career-best clocking of 1:50.4.

The Western Terror-In A Safe Place filly is a half-sister to harness racing's richest horse, the popular Dragon Again son Foiled Again ($7,318,997 - 1:48).

Three-year-old trotting filly Jolene Jolene (Muscle Hill-Celebrity Speedie), purchased by Hunterton Farm of Paris, Kentucky, and three-year-old pacing colt Rock N Roll World (Rocknroll Hanover-Worldly Beauty), acquired by agent Mark Silva of Little Ferry, N.J., also topped the $200,000 mark.
