We will offer a dozen broodmares and broodmare prospects and three yearlings at the Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale beginning on Monday, January 7, in Lexington.
Leading our consignment is Wonderously, a daughter of Awesome Again who from four foals to race has produced 2012 stakes winner Baffle Me, by First Samurai, and stakes-placed, seven-time winner Locksley Hall, by Songandaprayer. Now 13, Wonderously is a half sister to multiple graded stakes winner Forest Music, who was Grade 1-placed, and is a daughter of stakes-winning track record-setter Defer West, by Gone West.
Wonderously is Hip 1028. Her yearling colt by Pomeroy is Hip 1755.
Our consignment also features some of the first mares in foal to exciting young stallions. Hip 55, the mare Kith N Kin—who is from the immediate family of Blushing Groom and whose first foal, Kidding, has earned more than $127,000 with five wins to date—is in foal to versatile multiple Grade 1 winner Paddy O’Prado.
Capilla Bonita, who sells as Hip 310 and is out of a Grade 2-winning half-sister to Storm Cat, is in foal to multiple champion Gio Ponti.
Two other mares, Hsi Wang Mu, Hip 1557, and Cuz You Never Know, Hip 1812, are in foal to Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and Donn Handicap (G1) winner Albertus Maximus.
Our first horses will be housed in Barn 9 at Keeneland, with later hips in Barns 37 and 4.
