Book Five of 2014 Keeneland September Sales Should Spark Buyer Interests

Book Five of 2014 Keeneland September Sales Should Spark Buyer Interests: Book 5 of the Keeneland Sale (on Friday, September 19, 2014) is the second to last book, and sometimes, it may be the last time the buyers get to visit the sale until next year. Book 5 really caught my eyes with some really “neat” pedigrees. Let’s jump right in!

Keeneland September Sale 2014 Book 5

Friday’s edition of the 2014 Keeneland September Sale features a few colts and fillies worth a second glance.

Hip 3196 – Pioneer of the Nile filly, out of the Anasheed mare Lil Indy, already has a name! Named Indynile Princess, this filly has a lot of potential! Her sire is a younger sire, which has already proven to be a very good sire. This filly is out the half sister to multiple graded stakes winner, Flat Out, who recently retired to stud at age 7. This filly should love dirt, and likely middle distances, but could stretch out with the right training, as she has the right pedigree.

Hip 3210 – This Hard Spun colt is likely to find the turf to his liking. Why? His dam is a half sister to Winter Memories, the multiple graded stakes mare, who loved the grass. This colt’s second dam, Memories of Silver, was also a multiple graded stakes winner. The distaff line here is very healthy and ripe with winners. Hard Spun gets those distance runners, and this colt could very likely find the longer the distance, the better.

Hip 3226 – this filly, named Tale of Indy, is by the Pulpit stallion, Ice Box. What I like about this filly is that she is inbred 3Sx3D so A.P. Indy. We know the inbreeding is likely to work, as we have graded stakes winner I Spent It bred on the same cross. This filly is out of a Tale of the Cat mare, which should lend some speed to all the stamina up top. This filly will likely relish the two turn dirt races.

Hip 3235 – this First Dude filly will likely be found on the front end of her races, when she gets there, that is. She is out of the Phone Trick mare, New York Jessica. The appealing thing about the distaff line here is, that New York Jessica, is half to the multiple graded stakes winner, Unbridled Belle. This filly should find the traditional dirt to her liking, and be able to carry her speed two turns.

Hip 3312 – this City Zip colt would be a likely candidate for sprint races. Not so fast though! This colt is out of the Fusaichi Pegasus mare Sea Pegasus. Sea Pegasus is out of a Seattle Slew mare. In the bottom half of the pedigree, there are two Kentucky Derby winners, one being the winner of the 1977 Triple Crown. The 2nd dam, Seattle Classic, is also a half sister to Dance Smartly, winner of the Canadian Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup Distaff, and Smart Strike, grade one winner and champion sire. This colt should balance out well and find the mile distance to his liking, or maybe a little further. Dirt should be his preferred surface.

Hip 3335 – this Super Saver filly is likely to turn some heads. Her dam, Smart Society, is by the recently deceased, Beau Genius. While this filly has 5 half siblings, 3 of them have races, but none have won. The 2nd dam here though, produced multiple graded stakes winners Colonel John and the flat racer turned steeplechaser Mr. Hot Stuff. This filly is likely to find middle distances to her liking and would likely take to any surface.

Hip 3336 – This Northern Afleet filly has quite a lovely pedigree for the distance lovers. Out of the Candy Ride mare Smoothe as Candy, she has quite a distaff line. Her dam is a full sister to graded stakes winner Chocolate Candy. The distaff line of this filly would also show up in the champion Twirling Candy. The most interesting and exciting thing in the pedigree, though, is the 4th dam Won’t Tell You. Won’t Tell You produced the 1978 Triple Crown winner, Affirmed.

Hip 3434 – This filly by Drosselmeyer should be well received. She is out of the A.P. Indy mare Brilliant Disguise, who also is a half sister to multiple graded stakes winner Jersey Town. While Brilliant Disguise was unraced, her dam, Jersey Girl, was a multiple graded stakes winner. She took the Mother Goose Stakes (G1), the Test Stakes (G1), and the Cicada Stakes (G3), among others. Brilliant Disguise has proven that the Distorted Humor sire line works with her, as she has produced a winner by Distorted Humor. This filly has a very good distaff line and should find the two turn dirt races to her liking.
