Maryland-bred offerings at Kentucky fall mixed sales - Maryland Horse Breeders Association

A total of 60 Maryland-breds are catalogued to the major fall breeding stock sales in Lexington, Ky. Two are headed to Fasig-Tipton’s marquee November Sale on Sunday, Nov. 4. And 58 can be found in the Keeneland November Breeding Stock sale, which runs from Monday, Nov. 5 through Friday, Nov. 16.

Not For Love’s remarkable daughter Love the Chase is Hip 218 (click for catalogue page) at the Fasig-Tipton sale. In foal to Uncle Mo, the dam of California Chrome has produced three winners from four starters to date. She last sold at the same sale in 2016 for $1.95 million in foal to Tapit. The resulting colt sold at this year’s Keeneland September sale for $1.1 million. Out of the Polish Numbers mare Chase It Down, 12-year-old Love the Chase was bred by Bowman & Higgins Stable.

Also selling at Fasig-Tipton is stakes winner Kosmo’s Buddy, a daughter of Outflanker and the Allen’s Prospect stakes-placed mare Vaulted bred by Arnold Smolen. The 13-year-old mare (Hip 247) (click for catalogue page) is the dam of 2018 Grade 1-winning juvenile Knicks Go. She was not mated for 2019.

The Keeneland sale has 26 Maryland-bred broodmares, in foal to such stallions at Quality Road, Frosted, California Chrome and current leading freshman sire Goldencents and first-ranked second-crop sire Violence. Six racing or broodmare prospects are offered, including stakes winner Ginger N Rye. Counted among the 26 weanlings are five by first-year Maryland sire Mosler. The stakes-winning son of War Front stands at Country Life Farm in Bel Air. The Mosler weanlings include a half-brother to multiple stakes winner American Dubai and a half-sister to stakes winners Moonlit Malibu and Wait It Out.

The Maryland-bred weanlings include Kosmo’s Buddy’s Broken Vow colt, thus a half-brother to Knicks Go.
