The sale season moves on to Saratoga, and in the first session Breeze Easy will offer hip 11, a standout colt from the first crop of Mitole.
A grandson of three-time leading sire, Giant’s Causeway, Mitole was a spectacular sprinter/miler. Overall, he won seven stakes events, including the Churchill Downs Stakes (G1), Forego Stakes (G1), Metropolitan Mile (G1) and Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).
This colt is a half-brother to another very fast horse in Long Weekend. Like this colt, by a Storm Cat line stallion, Long Weekend is a multiple stakes winner of over $360,000 to date. His victories include the Gazebo Stakes and the Bachelor Stakes (below), in which he defeated grade one winners Echo Town and Eight Rings.
The dam of this colt is the stakes placed A.P. Indy granddaughter, Liza Too. She owns a superb sprinting pedigree, as she is half-sister to a pair of millionaire speedsters in Paulassilverlining and Dads Caps. Paulassilverling captured seven graded stakes, including the Madison Stakes (G1) and Humana Distaff Stakes (G1), while Dads Caps – another by a Storm Cat line stallion – captured two renewals of the Carter Handicap (G1).
