The broodmare Quiet Now was easily the highest price of the third session of the Keeneland 2011 breeding stock sale. The winning $1.85 million bid came from Claiborne Farm in partnership with longtime client Adele Dilschneider for the 6-year-old winning daughter of Tiznow.
In foal to City Zip, Quiet Now is a gray or roan half-sister to 2005 Horse of the Year Saint Liam, Grade 3 winner Congressionalhonor, Grade 2 winner Quiet Game, and listed winner Dance Quietly.
“I’ve wanted something from that family for a long time,” said Claiborne’s Seth Hancock. “She’s a nice, big mare and I loved her weanling (a colt by Tale of the Cat that brought $425,000 in the same session). It was way too much money, but we wanted her."
