Pioneerof the Nile filly brings $575,000 at Saratoga Yearling sale
Monday, August 7, 2017
Pioneerof the Nile, sire of two juvenile champions, was represented by a $575,000 filly during the first night of the Aug. 7-8 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearlings sale.

Pioneerof the Nile most famous son, multiple champion American Pharoah, went through this same auction four years ago before achieving racing immortality with his triumphant Triple Crown campaign in 2015.

Monday’s session featured a trio of Pioneerof the Nile’s youngster, all of them bringing at least $300,000, with an average price of $458,333.

Hip No. 38 was her sire’s top seller on the day. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales, she went to Juddmonte Farms. The bay filly is out of the graded stakes-placed Tapit mare Rashnaa.

Hip No. 79, consigned by Four Star Sales, went for an even $500,000 to Spendthrift Farm. The gray roan filly’s dam Tap of the Day is a full sister to leading sire Tapit and from the same family as millionaire Madefromlucky.

Rounding out the trio was hip No. 35, a colt consigned by Woodford Thoroughbreds and purchased by Crupi’s New Castle Farm for $300,000. The colt’s dam Queen Joanne is a half-sister to 2-year-old champion Stevie Wonderboy.
