Tapit weanling filly brings $700K at Keeneland Day 3


Wednesday, November 09, 2011 |
The second-most-expensive horse at the Keeneland November auction's third day was a $700,000 Tapit weanling filly. Hip No. 783, the chestnut filly is out of the unraced Unbridled mare Piedras Negras.

Demi O’Byrne acquired the  filly for Coolmore Stud from Three Chimneys Sales, agent for John and Marsha Antonelli. The weanling is a half sister to 2007 Victory Ride S. (G3) winner La Traviata, who raced for Susan Magnier, wife of Coolmore managing partner John Magnier.

"She (La Traviata) was a very fast filly; she was just unlucky with what happened to her," said M.V. Magnier, one of John and Susan's sons. "Demi and  loved the (Tapit) filly and we bought her to race her."

Tapit's second-highest seller of the session was the 5-year-old mare Autumn Ash, with a winning bid of $280,000 from Carolyn Vogel. Van Meter Sales, Agent, consigned the gray mare who is a half-sister to Spinster S. (G1) winner Pampered Princess.
