Eight students from Equine Studies at the University of Maryland have been working tirelessly to prepare and sell the foals that were born at the campus farm this past spring.

Fearless Terp, colt by Nicanor out of Daylight Lassie (barn name Axel) was entered this past weekend in the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Winter Mixed sale for horses bred for racing, and on January 29 he sold to Ronald Blake for $5,200. The buyer of the colt also purchased a colt named Blazing Terp sold by the University of Maryland in last year's sale. Most thoroughbred owners hire professional consignors to sell their offspring, but the University of Maryland trains their own students to do it themselves, marking an extreme point of pride for our program.
