$410k for Sumptuous on day four at Keeneland

Sumptuous, another mare from the Edward P. Evans dispersal has been sold for$410,000  at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale.

The 6-year-old Hennessy mare was sold to Barbara Banke's Stonestreet Stables at the sale in Lexington, Kentucky

"We actually sold her as a yearling to Mr. Evans, so we always loved her at the farm," said bloodstock agent John Moynihan, who signed the ticket.

"Hennessy is a great broodmare sire, and Barbara had a little affection for her. She is beautiful and she fits what we are trying to do," he added.

Sumptuous sold at the 2006 Keeneland September yearling sale for $400,000. Out of the graded stakes winning Dehere mare Belle of Perintown, she is a half-sister to grade 3 winner Strike it Rich.

"We still own her mother," explained Moynihan. "Her mother is one of our most favorite mares at the farm. She always has pretty babies, so we are hoping her daughter will have pretty babies for us too."

Lane's End is serving as consignor for the dispersal of Evans' Spring Hill Farm. Sumptuous was offered in foal to Quality Road.
