Keeneland sales date for Oaks winner Plum Pretty

PLUM PRETTY, the winner of last year's Kentucky Oaks, is to be sold as a broodmare/racing prospect at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

The daughter of Medaglia D'Oro, who was unsold as a yearling at $100,000, will be consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency on behalf of owner John Fort's Peachtree Stable.

She is out of the A.P. Indy mare Liszy, herself a daughter of  Keeneland's Alcibiades Stakes winner Silent Account who descends from the family of champions Sir Ivor, Menow and Alcibiades.

"From a conformational standpoint, Plum Pretty exemplifies everything you look for in a classic racehorse: size, strength, balance and great depth of shoulder to go along with her remarkable presence," Fort said. "She has won at the highest level and still has a lot of race left in her. This is just a wonderful filly."

Her trainer Bob Baffert added: "She was such a pleasure to have in the barn, winning the Kentucky Oaks and the Apple Blossom which are Grade 1 races.  She was a brilliant racehorse and has a tremendous presence about her... a real ‘wow' factor."

"We are very fortunate to include Plum Pretty in our November sale," said Walt Robertson, Keeneland's vice president of sales. "She's an impeccably-bred, classic winner and we are delighted to include her in our catalogue."

The November sale starts on Tuesday, November 6.
