Uncle Mo half-sister tops Keeneland Friday session

GROSSE POINTE ANNE, a half-sister to last Saturday's Breeders’ Cup Juvenile hero UncleMo, topped the Friday session of Keeneland’s November breeding stock sale when purchased by WinStar Farm for $400,000.
A three-year-old filly by Silver Deputy out of the stakes-placed Arch mare Playa Maya (who herself was bought for $1.65 million by Coolmore at Fasig-Tipton on Sunday), Grosse Pointe Anne was offered as a broodmare prospect.

The day’s second-highest price tag of $195,000 belonged to the five-year-old Vindication mare Modification, in foal to Spring At Last.

Modification is out of the stakes-winning Afleet mare Swift Alliance, and is a half-sister to stakes winners Sky Alliance, Classic Alliance and Prime Ruler. Betz Thoroughbreds was the buyer.
Turnover on Friday was $10,349,100 (down 4.5 per cent on last year), for an average of $37,361 (down 11 per cent) and a median of $27,000 (down 16 per cent).

Through the first five days of the Keeneland November breeding stock sale, 1,120 horses have been sold for $118,752,100, for an average of $106,029 and a median of $60,000.

During the corresponding period last year, 1,049 horses brought $129,721,200, for an average of $123,662 and a median of $70,000.
