563 is a War Front colt, half to Congrats and Flatter, goes for only $100,000.
Since he appeared to have a head and four legs, I suspect an RNA.

Been noticing this as well. I wonder if Shaman Ghost, Go Maggie Go (and Gamble's Ghost) might be boosting his advertising. He's also gotten a G1 winner in Brazil so that's two separate G1 winners this year, and 6 separate graded stakes winner this year. He's having a good year I think, so the boost in interest makes sense.

Along with Ghostzapper, it looks like Speightstown is also having a good sale. Lots of decent prices, and even sales to the Japanese. His get run on anything, over most distances, so I think he's attractive to a variety of buyers.

I've said this before, but I want to again! I just love the handler in the ring with this horse. I forget his name, but I'm sure he's also the one who was with Eblouissant when she needed to pee and he was like "Not yet sweetie!" LOL

I also like how he gave this colt a pat as he handed him back over when he sold.

:)

I think the same handler handled the Havre De Grace colt, gave him a quick kiss on the neck when he 'sold'.
That was Cordell Anderson, who's also Runhappy's caretaker. He is one of the best handlers I've ever seen, if not the best.

578, a colt by War Front out of the stakes-winning Sadler's Wells mare, Quarter Moon, should be popular. Very alert, handsome, nearly-black colt, $800,000.

Hope these yearlings make it to the races for Mandy. Should make a fine addition to her high-priced harem after they retire.
