Jimmy Winkfield Stakes winner HELLO HOT ROD Among Latest Additions to Kentucky Winter Mixed

Three-year-old colt HELLO HOT ROD, winner of Aqueduct’s Jimmy Winkfield Stakes this past Sunday, headlines Fasig-Tipton’s two latest additions to its 2021 Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale.  These newest entries are catalogued as hips 672 and 673 and may now be viewed online.

HELLO HOT ROD, catalogued as hip 672, will be consigned as a racing prospect by ELiTE, agent.  The three-year-old son of Mosler has won three consecutive races for trainer/co-owner Brittany Russell and partner Dark Horse Racing LLC.  Making his stakes debut in the Jimmy Winkfield, HELLO HOT ROD overcame the rail draw to win in game wire-to-wire fashion.  Although the colt is a registered Maryland-bred, his win in the Jimmy Winkfield was against open company.

HELLO HOT ROD now has three wins and one second in four career starts, and earnings of $113,941.  He is a half-brother to HELLO BEAUTIFUL, a multiple stakes winner of $377,110.  His female family includes graded stakes winners HELLO LIBERTY and SIGNIFICANT FORM.

“Hello Hot Rod is an exciting addition to our Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “It is rare for a three-year-old colt, coming off a stakes win, to be offered at this time of year.  He is the “now horse” for those that want a colt for the Kentucky Derby trail.”

The Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale will take place this Monday and Tuesday, February 8-9, in Lexington, Kentucky.  Sessions begin daily at 10 am.
