Foals popular on Keeneland day four

BUYERS clearly had their eyes on weanlings during the early stages of Thursday’s session of the Keeneland November breeding stock sale, which is the second day of Book 2.

The top lot so far is a Rock Hard Ten colt who sold to Scott Ford’s Westrock Stables for $300,000. The weanling is out of the unraced Fusaichi Pegasus mare Regard, who is a half-sister to stakes winner Give Notice.

Westrock is based in Little Rock, Arkansas. Denali Stud, agent for Berkshire Stud, consigned the weanling.

Immediately after that, a weanling colt by Tapit sold to Ben Glass, agent, for $260,000. The grey or roan colt is out of the winning Mr Greeley mare Rhumb Line, who is also the dam of Group 2-placed runner Art Princess. He was consigned by Gainesway, agent.

Glass was not finished buying Tapit weanlings. Later in the day, he purchased a Tapit filly for $210,000. Out of the winning Grand Slam mare Slammingpartygirl, the filly was consigned by Gainesway, agent for Eldon Farm Equine.

Ahh, a three-year-old daughter of Saint Liam, is the top selling broodmare of the session thus far. She sold to Stoneway Farm for $200,000. Out of the Deputy Minister mare Ministrada, Ahh is a half-sister to graded stakes winners Rahystrada and Lone Star Sky. She was offered in foal to Indian Charlie by Eaton Sales, agent.

Be Smart, who was also consigned by Eaton Sales, failed to meet her reserve when bidding stopped at $290,000.

The session-topper on Wednesday came late in the day when multiple stakes winner Lady Alexander sold to Keith and Ginger Myers’ Coteau Grove Farms. The Louisiana operation paid $410,000 for the four-year-old Exchange Rate filly, who was consigned by Three Chimneys Sales, agent.

Lady Alexander was offered as a racing or broodmare prospect, and is slated to remain in training.
