The Keeneland September Yearling sale results continued to ring up big numbers during Tuesday’s second session for the first crop from the brilliant Bodemeister, topped by a filly that went for $850,000.
Bodemeister’s two-day average, with 14 lots sold, is $312,857, best for any sire represented by his first crop in 2015.
Betz Thoroughbreds consigned the pricey filly, hip No. 452, which went to Crupi’s New Castle. The filly’s dam Mining My Own has already made her mark on history with 2009 Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Mine That Bird, as well as multiple Grade 1 winner Dullahan.
Bodemeister also had a pair of $500,000 colts on Tuesday. Hip No. 347 went to Robert and Lawana Low. From the Dromoland Farm consignment, the colt is out of a full sister to Grade 1 winners Daaher and Spun Sugar. Hip No. 360, consigned by Warrendale Sales, went to Maverick Racing and China Horse Club. The colt hails from the same family that has produced winners of the Kentucky Oaks (G1) and Blue Grass S. (G1).
The Keeneland sale continues through September 26, with Bodemeister having an additional 73 lots offered in the remaining days of the sale.
