Coughlin tops Spring Mixed Sale with $65,000 bid; sale average down

Coach Tom Coughlin led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl titles. Sunday, just across the parking lot from the Giants and Jets’ MetLife Stadium, Coughlin’s equine namesake was the star of the Tattersalls Spring Mixed Sale in the paddock at the Meadowlands Racetrack.

Coughlin the three-year-old trotting colt, topped the sale with a bid of $65,000 made by Vito Cucci of Belmar, NJ. Coughlin, a son of Credit Winner out of Kelly Hall, has a record of 4-0-1 in six starts this year and won a $15,000 New York Excelsior test in his last start (May 29) at Tioga Downs for trainer Ron Burke.
