         Legacy Ranch purchased Hip 66 Glass Ceiling, a filly by leading stallion Favorite Cartel out of the outstanding broodmare Babe On The Fly, for $110,000 to make her the high-seller of the opening session of the 16th annual Los Alamitos Equine Sale on Saturday.

          Bred by Dr. Steve Burns, the 2019 AQHA champion breeder, and consigned by his Burns Ranch, Glass Ceiling is a full sister to Grade 1 Golden State Million Futurity winner Little Talks ($563,897) and a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Rock You ($790,325). Glass Ceiling (photo) is also a half-sister to Ali Babe Foose ($484,614), the runner-up of the 2018 Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity, and stakes winner Fly Thru Fire ($144,125).

          Favorite Cartel also sired the top selling colt after Ray Willis purchased Hip 114 Nationally Ranked for $105,000. Dr. Burns also bred and consigned Nationally Ranked, whose dam is the One Famous Eagle mare Eagle On The Fly. A full sister to 2015 All American Futurity runner-up One Fabulous Eagle ($664,547), Eagle On The Fly won the Lubbock Stakes and finished third in the Rainbow Futurity on the way to earning $217,619 in her racing career.

          The top selling broodmare of the first session went to Rancho El Cabresto Inc. after purchasing Hip 100 Mischievous Player for $95,000 from Lazy E Ranch LLC, agent for John Andreini. Sired by Corona Cartel and out of the Grade 1 stakes winning mare Dinastia Toll BRZ, the 10-year-old mare is a half-sister to multiple AQHA champion colt FDD Dynasty ($1,173,001) and All American Juvenile Invitational winner JM Mister Destiny ($274,369). Mischievous Player is the dam of DF Mischievious Jess (269,795), who finished second in the 2019 Rainbow Futurity. Mischievous Player was bred on March 4 and is in foal to Favorite Cartel.
