Gainesway leads way on day 2 at Keeneland


Wednesday, January 11, 2012 |
Gainesway consigned seven of the top 11 broodmare prices during the second day of the Keeneland January sale, leading all consignors for the session.

Topping the list was the $450,000 bid from Eaton Sales for the Grade 3 winner Touching Beauty, a 5-year-old daughter of Gainesway stallion Tapit. She is a full sister to the stakes winner Noisy Feet.

Close behind was hip No. 623, the 6-year-old mare Art Princess, who has a 2011 foal by Tapit. Art Princess, who is a half-sister to the multiple Grade 1 winning Tapit filly Zazu, was purchase for $400,000 by Katsumi Yoshida.

Hip No. 604, Zealous Cat, sold for $350,000 to Glen Hill Farm. The 6-year-old mare is in foal to Tapit. She is a half-sister to Pohave, winner of the Grade 1 Triple Bend Breeders' Cup Invitational H.

A pair of Gainesway consignees brought $300,000: Grand Portege, a half-sister to Preakness (G1) winner Shackleford and Grade 1 winner Lady Joanne, went to Xavier International Bloodstock; and the stakes-winning mare Parisian Affair, who went to Eaton Sales, agent.
