With two locations, Integrity Stables is busy prepping for the upcoming Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale. The farms, one located in Topeka and one in Shipshewana, will be part of the Northern Indiana Open House set for Monday, Oct. 12 and Tuesday, Oct. 13. Several farms are coming together to give prospective buyers two full afternoons of inspection of the yearlings set for the sale Oct. 23 and 24 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
A total of 10 yearlings will be in the consignment for Integrity Stables and will kick off with a Rockin Image filly as Hip No. 36. Rockin N Boogie, out of the Bettors Delight mare Bookie, who has a mark of 1:54.1, has a half-sister, Doyoudesiremyheart, also an Indiana sired filly, who has a mark of 1:54.4. Rockin N Boogie is paid into several engagements, including the Breeders Crown, Little Brown Jug, Adios as well as the Indiana stakes.
Top Tuxedo, a colt by Swan for All, will get a lot of looks in Aisle 6. He is a brother to Skyway Torpedo (1:55, $213,000) and Skyway Tinacious (1:54.3, $94,000). Top Tuxedo sells as Hip No. 145 and is also staked into extended opportunities outside of Indiana, including the Hambletonian and Breeders Crown.
Integrity Stables has several trotting prospects from first crop sire Dover Dan. One of those is Hip No. 185, Kwik Kramer, who is a half brother to Swan in Motion, who has a mark of 1:53.2 and more than $269,000 in earnings.
