Gainesway offering brings $1.2M at Keeneland first session


Sunday, September 11, 2011 |
Gainesway consigned the first seven-figure horse of the 2011 Keeneland September yearling sale when a colt sold on behalf of his breeder Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings LLC brought $1.2 million during the Sept. 11 opening night of the two-week sale. The price was the second-highest of evening.

The colt, hip No. 63, is by Street Cry and out of graded stakes winner Forest Music, who is the dam of one other foal, Maclean's Music, noted for earning a 114 Beyer Speed Figure in his debut this spring. Forest Music won the Grade 2 Honorable Miss H. and the Grade 3 Miss Preakness S.

George Bolton, who campaigns some horses in partnership with Stonestreet, was the winning bidder.

Gainesway’s Michael Hernon said the final price exceeded expectations.

“I am blown away,” Hernon said. “That was well beyond our expectations, not to say that it was unrealistic. He was a super nice looking horse. He’s very well related, he is out of a major running mare. He is super athletic and he’s by a top stallion. This is the sort of thing can happen here at Keeneland.”
