Recent Maryland Million Ladies winner Zonda and multiple stakes winner Enchanted Ghost, entered as racing or broodmare prospects, were the highest-priced Maryland-breds among the four that sold at Fasig-Tipton’s November Sale on Tuesday, Nov. 5 in Lexington, Ky.

The most expensive, at $500,000, was Zonda, purchased by Live Oak Stud. Breaking her maiden in her career debut in May, the 3-year-old filly managed fourth-place finishes in the Christiana Stakes and Fasig-Tipton Virginia Oaks, with fifth-place finishes in the Light Hearted Stakes and Bald Eagle Derby, and an allowance win in August. In her most recent start she drew off in the $125,000 Maryland Million Ladies on Maryland Million Day Oct. 19. Campaigned by Matthew Schera, who plucked her out of the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga select yearling sale for $155,000, Zonda has a record of 8-3-1-0, with $159,407 in earnings.

Bred by Caroline Stautberg’s Willow Oaks Stable, Zonda is one of five winners from her dam Winning Season, who is a daughter of the multiple graded stakes winner Topicount. She was consigned by South Point Sales Agency Agent IX

Ghostzapper’s 4-year-old daughter Enchanted Ghost, consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency Agent III, was purchased by Double Bridges for $335,000. Racing for Mens Grille Racing after being selected out of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale for $75,000, Enchanted Ghost broke her maiden in her fourth start, was third in her stakes debut in her first start at 3 in the Marshua Stakes, and followed up with wins in the 2018 Wide Country Stakes and this year’s Maryland Racing Media Stakes. The 4-year-old filly, who last raced in June, has earned $262,182 from 17 starts, with four wins.

Bred by George Louis Doetsch Jr., Enchanted Ghost is one of two winners for her dam, the Grand Slam mare Uniformly Yours. The mare’s other runner is 2-year-old filly Selflessly, winner of the Miss Grillo-G2 at Belmont in September and a recent fifth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf-G1.
