Goldikova owners spend $825,000 at Keeneland

FRESH  off their brilliant mare Goldikova’s third consecutive Breeders’ Cup Mile victory, the Wertheimer brothers were active at the Keeneland November sale.

They went to $825,000 for Just Reward, the dam of grade 1 winner Persistently. A 4-year-old Smoke Glacken filly, Persistently is best known for defeating 2009 American Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra in this year’s Personal Ensign Stakes.

Out of champion Heavenly Prize, Just Reward is a half-sister to grade 1 winner Good Reward, grade 2 winner Pure Prize, and stakes winner Cosmic. The Wertheimers declined to comment on their purchase of the 11-year-old Deputy Minister mare.

Claiborne Farm, agent, consigned Just Reward on behalf of Phipps Stable, which is reducing its stock.  She is in foal to Malibu Moon.
