Gainesway had the highest priced in-foal mare and highest priced broodmare prospect during Wednesday’s opening session of the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.
Leading all consignors by average with more than five sold, at $758,069 Gainesway saw their nine sold bring a gross of $6,830,000 – second among all consignors.
TAPIT’s daughter Pink Sands led the way when purchased by Masahiro Miki for $2.3 million. In foal to Into Mischief, the dual graded stakes winner was campaigned by Anthony Beck and Andrew Rosen during her racing career. Read more about her time in the ring here.
TAPIT’s multiple stakes-placed Mind Out was another $1 million mare when Dana Bernhard went to $1.2 million to secure her. Making TAPIT the only stallion to sire two seven-figure horses on Wednesday, Mind Out is a half-sister to Canadian champion Miss Mischief and to the dam of multiple Grade 1-placed Rowayton, from the family of Letruska. The filly is one of the first broodmares for the Bernhards, who have just started assembling a broodmare band. Read more from Blood-Horse about why they liked her here.
Gainesway also sold the $725,000 Achalaya to Thirty Year Farm and TAPIT’s broodmare daughter Tapit Today to Winchell Thoroughbreds for $650,000 among their others sold.
TAPIT led all sires by gross at $5,470,000 for six sold and was the leading sire by average among stallions with five or more sold at $911,667.
