Roy and Gretchen Jackson’s Lael Stables went to $500,000 to purchase a half-sister to New York-bred champion Espresso Shot and multiple stakes winner Venti Valentine to finish as the top-priced New York-bred at this week’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale of selected yearlings.

The Jacksons, bidding in the sales pavilion alongside bloodstock advisor Doug Cauthen, purchased Hip 196 late Tuesday’s final session.

Bred by Final Furlong Racing and Maspeth Stable and foaled at Schuylerville Thoroughbred Farm in Fort Edward, the filly is from the first crop of Omaha Beach and out of the winning Medaglia d’Oro mare Glory Gold.

“We liked everything about her physically,” Roy Jackson said. “She had been out a lot and seemed to keep her stamina and we just thought in general that she was very nice.”

The Jacksons, best known for campaigning 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, are excited to possibly venture into the New York-bred ranks with the filly.

“It’s nice that we’ll be able to run her in some New York-bred races,” Roy Jackson said. “Obviously we don’t know much about (Omaha Beach). Hopefully he’s going to be a good young sire. We’re doing somewhat of a gamble because you don’t know how it’s going to turn out.”

Hip 196 was one of three New York-breds that sold for an average of $425,000 during Tuesday’s session.

The filly is the second foal out of Hot City Girl, a half-sister to New York-bred Horse of the Year and multiple graded stakes winner La Verdad. Hot City Girl was champion New York-bred 3-year-old filly in 2015.

Hip 130, a colt by Laoban and half-brother to Grade 3-placed Attachment Rate and four other winners, sold for $300,000 to Whitehorse Stables Tuesday. Bred by Sequel Stallions NY and Lakland Farm and foaled at Sequel Stallions New York in Hudson, the colt is out of the sixth foal out of the Afleet Alex mare Aristra, a half-sister to stakes winners and stakes producers Vespers and Database.
