Competitive Edge Filly Tops 2022 Minnesota Yearling Sale

Competitive Edge

A filly by Competitive Edge helped drive gains in gross and average sale price on Sunday during the Minnesota Thoroughbred Association Yearling Sale.

A total of 25 Minnesota-bred yearlings changed hands during the auction for revenues of $385,600, up from last year's auction, when 28 horses brought a combined $383,500. The average sale price rose to $15,424 from $13,696, while the median declined to $6,000 from $9,000.

Kerri Raven purchased the sale-topping Competitive Edge filly for $70,000.

The dark bay or brown filly, named Grandma's Prodigy, is the third foal out of the stakes-winning Dazzling Falls mare Dazzlingsweetheart. Grade 3 winner He's Vivacious is in the Minnesota-bred's extended family, along with Minnesota stakes winners Plana Dance, Heliskier, and Gypsy Melody.

Grandma's Prodigy was consigned by Von Seggern Thoroughbreds & Etc., as agent for Mary and Eric Von Seggern.

The Von Seggern operation was the sale's leading consignor, with combined revenues of $130,000.

Xtreme Racing Stables was the leading buyer, with three purchases totaling $113,000. The most expensive horse in that slate was a Tapiture gelding named Tappin the Blues, also from the Von Seggern consignment, who was secured for $60,000.
