Palace Malice's juveniles made an incredible impression at the March 12-13 OBS 2-year-olds in Training Sale, topped by an $850,000 colt during Wednesday's session.

Overall, Palace Malice had five lots sell for an average of $268,000, almost 18 times his stud fee of $15,000.

Wednesday's star juvenile was actually the highest price paid for a colt by a first-crop stallion during the two-day auction. Consigned by Pick View LLC, agent, as hip No. 325, the bay was purchased by Mike Ryan, agent.

"I thought he was the best colt in the sale," Ryan said. "We've kind of come full circle. I'm very close to the horse. I bought Palace Malice as a yearling, and I bred the colt's mother. When I saw (the colt) here last week, it blew me away. He is very much like his father."  

Bred by Three Chimneys, the colt is out of Miss Always Ready, a full sister to Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G2) winner More Than Real.
