KARAKONTIE’S multiple graded stakes winning daughter Princess Grace is set to join his stakes winning daughter Karak in Australia after China Horse Club went to $1.7 million to secure her at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale.
Offered by Taylor Made Sales Agency, the ultra-consistent 5-year-old earned more than $1.4 million in her career with seven wins and six other top three finishes in 14 starts for $1.4 million in earnings. China Horse Club’s Michael Smith told Blood-Horse that Princess Grace will now embark on a racing career down under before her retirement to their broodmare band.
“(She was an) A-plus physical, Very consistent form. We’re going to take her to Australia and try and make her a group 1 winner, and then to the breeding shed,” Smith said. “She’s got another 12 months of racing in her and then she’ll be a beautiful addition to the broodmare band.”
