Pioneerof the Nile weanlings dominate Fasig-Tipton November sale
Thursday, November 8, 2018
Led by a $1.9 million filly, Pioneerof the Nile was the dominant weanling sire at the Nov. 4 Fasig-Tipton “Night of the Stars” sale.

Taylor Made Sales Agency, on behalf of Three Chimneys Farm, consigned the dark bay youngster, who was purchased by Whisper Hill Farm LLC. The filly is the first foal out of Stopchargingmaria, who earned more than $3 million and won the Breeders' Cup Distaff (G1), Alabama S. (G1) and CCA Oaks (G1) among her eight graded stakes wins.

“How can you not be pleased with that?,” Three Chimneys' Chris Baker said after watching dam and daughter sell. “The weanling was exceptional. When you sell horses like those, for us, it's bittersweet, because we loved her. We saw all the things the market saw in her. But to get that kind of result, it's hard not to be over the moon about it.”

Earlier in the sale Pioneerof the Nile's hip No. 109, consigned by Bedouin Bloodstock, would ultimately be the second-highest price weanling of the sale when Oxo Equine went to $600,000 for the bay colt. 

The colt, out of Love the Chase, attracted plenty of attention being a half-brother to two-time Horse of the Year and Kentucky Derby (G1) champ California Chrome. 

“We are sad to see him go,” said Neal Clarke of Bedouin Bloodstock, who raised and sold the colt for breeder SF Bloodstock. “We hated to sell him as a foal. We think he will do quite well as a yearling if they decide to sell him. He is a beautiful horse, a very smart, classy horse.”
