Virginian-owned Yearling Makes $410K at Fasig-Tipton

Fireworks went off for one Virginian at the exclusive Fasig-Tipton July sale this week. Louisa Lenehan’s Locklaw Farm–with Virginia yearling futurity judge Bayne Welker and his wife Chris–bred a beautiful Blame colt who sold to Charles Sanford for $410,000. Although the colt out of Princess Birdeye was foaled in Kentucky, where the mare now resides, Lenehan typically raises and preps all of her yearlings in Virginia. We look forward to seeing what this gorgeous colt goes on to do at the racetrack.

Lenehan also bred hip 193, a Candy Ride Colt that went for $65,000 to Raut LLC.
