In terms of eye-catching times, a Volatile  filly and an Authentic  colt stood out among the juveniles that breezed at the May 14 under tack show ahead of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale.

Juveniles cataloged as Hips 1-200 breezed Tuesday on the fast track at Timonium. Hips 201-400 are scheduled to breeze Wednesday, beginning at 8 a.m. ET, with Hips 401-585 scheduled for Thursday beginning at the same time.

Eight workers into Tuesday morning's proceedings, a Volatile filly cataloged as Hip 12 displayed an efficient stride and appeared light on her feet as she blazed a furlong in :10 flat, which would hold up as the fastest eighth-mile of the session.

Consigned by Hartley/de Renzo Thoroughbreds, the chestnut filly is out of the twice stakes-placed Exchange Rate mare Exchange Cat, who has produced three winners from as many starters, including grade 2-placed Grit and Curiosity, a Macho Uno gelding. Exchange Cat is a half sister of two stakes-placed runners.

Bred in Kentucky by Newtownanner Stud Farm, the filly sold to Hartley/de Renzo last year for $230,000 at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale, where she was consigned by Blake-Albina Thoroughbred Services, agent. The filly was an out at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Co. Spring Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training.

Hartley/de Renzo, agent, would just be getting started Tuesday, as later in the morning a long-striding Authentic colt they consigned registered the fastest quarter-mile time of :21 1/5. Bred in Florida by Bridlewood Farm, the colt (Hip 59) is out of the grade 1-winning Uncle Mo  mare Gomo, who at age 2 captured the 2015 Alcibiades Stakes (G1) at Keeneland.

First-crop sire Authentic, a son of five-time leading sire Into Mischief , won the 2020 Kentucky Derby (G1) and Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) to earn Horse of the Year honors.

Hartley/de Renzo went to $300,000 to purchase the colt at last year's Keeneland September sale, where he was consigned by @Bridlewood Farm (Gainesway agent). He did not reach his reserve at the OBS March 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale after a top bid of $385,000.

Four juveniles completed a furlong in :10 1/5 seconds Tuesday: Hip 10, a daughter of Liam's Map ; Hip 46, a son of freshman sire Thousand Words ; Hip 83, a daughter of Uncle Mo; and Hip 187, a son of Good Magic .

  • Consigned by Camelot Acres Racing & Sales, agent, the Liam's Map filly is out of the unraced Into Mischief mare Estoril, who is a half sister to grade 3 winner Tide of the Sea and two stakes-placed runners.
  • Consigned as the property of Shamrock Stable, the Thousand Words colt is out of the winning Tiz Wonderful mare Georgia, who has produced two winners form three starters.
  • Consigned by Pike Racing at Highlander, agent, the Uncle Mo filly is out of grade 3 winner Hot City Girl, whose first starter is a winner. Hot City Girl is a half sister to 2015 champion female sprinter La Verdad.
