Song and Danz hits a high note at Keeneland
Song and Danz became the second highest price of the day - after $625,000 buy Negligee - during the opening session of Keeneland’s January mixed sale when she sold to Anderson Farms for $400,000. The nine-year-old Unbridled’s Song mare is the dam of Grade 3 winner Necessary Evil.
“I hoped she would bea little cheaper, but that’s what I thought she was worth,” said David Anderson. “I thought she was a great individual, and obviously Necessary Evil doesn’t need any explanation. Hopefully we will get a correct foal and we’ll go from there.”
Song and Danz was offered in foal to Tapit by Allied Bloodstock, agent for Don Ameche III. She will be sent to Anderson Farms in Ontario, Canada, but will be bred back to a Kentucky stallion.
Anderson’s father, Bob, was involved in the thoroughbred industry for decades but died last November. David Anderson has now turned his focus to the family farm.
“I’m trying to carry on with the breeding programme and trying to step things up a little bit,” he said. “I’m just trying to improve things, and we need to assess our broodmare band and see where we are at. That’s the kind of mare I want toput in our programme going forward.”
