Weanling out of OBS grad Weemissfrankie tops JRA sale

For the second straight year, a weanling by leading Japanese sire Deep Impact (JPN) out of two-time OBS graduate Weemissfrankie made headlines, topping  Tuesday’s Japan Racing Horse Association Select Sale of yearlings and foals. Consigned by Northern Farm, the bay filly was sold to Danox Co. for $1,458,000. Her full brother, also consigned by Northern Farm, was sold at the same sale a year ago, going for $1,372,550 to Ryouichi Ootuka.  Tuesday’s sale topper is the second foal out of Weemissfrankie, by Sunriver, consigned first by Summerfield, Agent, to the 2010 August Sale before she was sold for $175,000 by Eddie Woods, Agent, to Joe Ciaglia at the 2011 April Sale. Trained by Peter Eurton and racing for Sharon Alesia, Bran Jam Stables, Ciaglia Racing LLC & Ron Dyrdek, she won three of five starts including the Del Mar Debutante Stakes (G1) and the Oak Leaf Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita.
