Great Filly for California

2.5% Remaining

2.5% $30,500

    • From second crop of City of Light

    • Out of a graded stakes winning Empire Maker mare

    • City of Light 2yo filly recently won 500k stake

This filly hails from the second crop of Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) and Pegasus World Cup (G1) victor City of Light. Out of a graded stakes winning daughter of Empire Maker, with a little bit of luck on the racetrack she could have tremendous residual value.

City of Light sired his first stakes winner recently when filly Chop Chop captured a 500k race at Kentucky Downs.

Her dam Keri Belle was a hard-knocking turf mare who competed primarily in Southern California for John Shirreffs and Jerry & Ann Moss (also own Zenyatta). A consistent performer, her key win came in the 2016 Megahertz Stakes (G3T) at Santa Anita.

John Sadler said, “It’s no secret I’m a big fan of City of Light. I love the filly and can’t think of a better fit for California. With her sire and dam being so successful out here, she was really a no-brainer filly for us to go after.”

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2024.
