Beautiful Filly by Red-Hot Sire
A beautiful, captivating filly with the right sire at Keeneland September, where the City of Lights were red-hot commodities across a wide range of top buyers. Coolmore, Mike Repole, Mandy Pope, Lane’s End, all entrenched at the top of the Thoroughbred market, converged to battle for City of Light’s yearlings, a rare level of esteem for a young sire.
Christophe Clement felt the same way and was eager to put together a group including West Point, Cheri Manning, and Rob Masiello to bid in this lovely bay filly.
“She is the alpha,” West Point’s Jason Blewitt noted back at the barn at the consignment of Stonehaven Steadings, which had a banner Wednesday at Keeneland, selling four of the 25 hips, including this filly.
The new filly’s dam side traces back to a heady Argentine family. The dam Canny was a stakes runner, and her full brother was a Graded stakes winner in New York.
I love the filly and I am so happy that West Point, Rob Masiello, and Cheri Manning were able to partner and get her bought.Christophe Clement
