The colt is aiming for Keeneland September according to Wayne Sweezey but he told me it's going to be a challenge to get Mandy to actually send him to the sale.

I thought it was this sale that he was entered (but, yes, good luck getting Pope to sell).

The Plum Pretty was going to Saratoga and both the Aloof and Grace are entered in September. From the big four (Betterbetterbetter didn't have a foal last year), only Groupie's is the one not getting entered anywhere. This all comes from what he told me for the TDN article I wrote about the mares/their foals/yearlings last month.

That must've been the article I read, just remembered the sale wrong. ;-)

Sweezey said the Plum Pretty is the only one he's pretty confident she'll send to a sale. She loves the mare but isn't as attached as she is to the others. It'll be interesting to see if this one hits the reserve since last year's colt didn't.

Clearly she's not too worried about getting some of her money back in yearling sales. ;-)

I guess we can look back and say you were wrong again, Ken/Chris.
