I'm hoping they decide to withdrawal her and bring her back next year. They can always sell her next year.

Hronis is also selling Hard Aces. Do they have a big stable?

There are some old favorite mares of mine in this sale. I need a winning Powerball ticket, STAT.

Unrivaled Belle, Pure Clan, Evening Jewel, Unzip Me, Cotton Blossom...

It's the strongest Keeneland November I've seen in a long time. They must have rivaled Fasig on their sales pitch.

Horses I've been following that now look like they are done racing... Kid Cruz, Norumbega, Top Billing. All had good careers, were more promising than their record shows, but had injuries. All could be nice stallions regionally.
Someone in Ontario should buy Reload - his half brother Philanthropist was an absolute stand-out stallion there, and Reload would fit well in Ontario's breeding program.
Also, Bedford Land - Casse did a great job of doing nothing with her.

My goodness, what an awesome group of horses. Looks like I'll be doing some deleting in my Virtual Stable after this one.

I'm sure many are in and could be withdrawn.

...and I agree, I wish I had MPM... Mandy Pope Money... and I'd go on a shopping spree!! :lol:

Speaking of Mandy Pope, are there any fillies/mares in the catalog that she may want to add to her high-class harem? ;)

There are several Phipps family mares in the sale, all of which have the expected gilt-edged pedigrees. The Distaff winner Pleasant Home is in the sale (I thought they sold her years ago!) and also a Bernadini-My Flag filly I've got to see.

Secret Gesture, Circling and Easter are all Galileo mares i/f to War Front. She's loved those in years past. Secret Gesture seems like she's calling Coolmore's name though.

Isn't this like owning 20 Louis Vutton bags and never branching out to Chanel? I hope girl got more variety than that.

I would be shocked if Coolmore bought Secret Gesture. They sell more Galileo mares in foal to War Front than they buy, with Mandy Pope usually buying them.

surprised they would want Lady Eli to keep racing after they saved her life once.

You can never have enough Galileos when you're Coolmore. Especially when they're in foal to War Front and you don't own them. (I should say Sadler's Wells lined horses in general)

I think she branched out to Chanel when she bought a $10-million mare and the other crazy expensive horses in the paddocks at Timber Town. (Not to say I don't agree with you. Not sure how well those Galileos are going to work out for her in the long run at North American sales.)

I personally hope that Mandy buys Stellar Wind to add to her fancy broodmare band.
