Seth Klarman's Klaravich Stable fueled some fireworks late in the Sept. 20 session of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale when agent Niall Brennan went to $425,000 to land a colt from the first crop Good Magic  for the Eclipse Award-winning owner.

Consigned as Hip 2326 by Bedouin Bloodstock, agent, and bred in Kentucky by SF Bloodstock, the colt is out of grade 2 winner Heart Stealer, a daughter of Speightstown 

The Good Magic yearlings have impressed Brennan and he said this colt had a presence.

"The market is strong, but he just stood out," Brennan said. "He's a good size for a Good Magic, great length about him … out of a Speightstown mare with a good family. We were very impressed with the individual and certainly loved the stallion and what he's doing. I thought he was one of the best I have seen all week, and it just happened that he was in this book, which probably helped him stand out. He's a late May foal; there is tons of improvement in him."
