Gainesway Sales, Tapit ultra strong in Book 1 at KEENOV


Thursday, November 07, 2013 |

Gainesway Sales and its marquee sire Tapit both posted seven-figure results in Book 1 of the Keeneland November Sale.

Gainesway consigned the second highest-priced in-foal mare on Wednesday, Day 2 of the Sale, when young Grade 1 winner Ask the Moon sold for $1,800,000 to Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings. Just a few hips earlier, a mare in foal to Tapit became his fifth million-dollar mare in three days, when Arena Elvira sold for $1,500,000 to Audley Farm.

Mares in foal to Tapit have been among the most highly sought-after at both Kentucky Breeding Stock Sales. Through three days at Keeneland and Fasig-Tipton, 11 mares in foal to Tapit have been offered, and all 11 have sold, for an average price of $1,172,273.

Gainesway Sales also sold the highest-priced weanling filly on Wednesday, when a daughter of Tapit sold for $550,000 to B.T.S.I., agent. Gainesway sold 100% of its offerings in Book 1, four mares and two weanlings, for an outstanding average of $525,333.
