Kentucky Oaks winner Plum Pretty is to be sold at Keeneland



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.
