Topville Acres is putting the final touches on seven yearlings consigned to the upcoming Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale at the Indiana State Fairgrounds set for Friday, Oct. 23 and Saturday, Oct. 24. The consignment features four trotters and three pacers, and all yearlings will be available for pre-sale inspection during the Northern Indiana Open House set for Monday, Oct. 12 and Tuesday, Oct. 13.
The consignment is led by a half brother to Indiana Sires Stakes Super Final winner Satin Dancer, who took a mark of 1:53 and has earnings in excess of $739,000. The colt is by first crop sire Dover Dan and is out of the Credit Winner mare, Shaken Not Stirred, who has also produced Indiana Sired Fair Circuit championship winner Serenas Serenade (1:56.0, $166,000) and Buck Dancer, who has a mark of 1:56.0 taken earlier this year. Topville Satnebony will sell on the second day of the sale as Hip No. 308.
Joining Topville Satnebony as an eye-catcher from Topville Acres is a filly from the family of Rum Boogie, a Dan Patch Award winner with a mark of 1:55 and earnings over $900,000. Selling as Hip No. 232, Topville Majestic is by Guccio out of the 100 percent producing mare Miss Tequila. Her most recent standout is Topville Martini, who has a mark of 1:55.3 as an Indiana Sires Stakes elimination winner. The second dam is the mother of Rum Boogie, giving the Guccio filly a lot of depth on her sales page.
The pacing prospects in Aisle 23 are led by Hip No. 262, Topville On a Virg, a bay colt by Always a Virgin out of the Art Major mare Our Sophia. The colt is a half brother to New York Sires Stakes winner Topville Olympian with a mark of 1:51 and more than $371,000 in earnings. The family of Topville On a Virg also includes Symphony In Motion (1:49, $1 million), the dam of Normandy Beach with a mark of 1:49.3 and nearly $500,000 in earnings.
Located in Topeka, Ind., Topville Acres will participate in the Northern Indiana Open House next week. All yearlings will be available for interaction and inspection during the two-day event.
