Gainesway Farm enjoyed an unforgettable Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale this year as the leading consignor of the elite auction with 12 yearlings sold including the $2.6 million sales topper.
Now, they hope to continue the same success at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton Night of the Stars Sale on Nov. 9 with a consignment that features three graded stakes winners including the speedy and precocious Perfect Alibi (Sky Mesa – No Use Denying, by Maria’s Mon). The Grade I winner campaigned by Tracy Farmer will be offered in foal to super-sire Into Mischief.
“I’ve spent the past 20 years developing our yearling sales at Gainesway and it’s been a real goal of ours to expand and try to be as competitive in the November market as we are in the yearling market,” Gainesway’s Brian Graves explained. “For the Farmers to give us a Grade I winner in foal to Into Mischief means a lot to us and we’re extremely appreciative for the chance.”
For Graves, Perfect Alibi offers everything breeders will be looking for in the days following Breeders’ Cup weekend.
“She’s an absolute collector’s item,” he said. “A Grade I-winning 2-year-old and in foal to North America’s leading sire. You don’t get your hands on many of these kinds of broodmares that were so good at two. Speed and precocity make some of the best producers and combined with her physical-she’s got balance, stretch and size- she’s a broodmare that anybody would like to have.”
