I would think Finley's, Bellavais and Mrs McDougal would be among the candidates to top.

Just started looking at Keeneland January and hip #3, Dance Play, only 2 years old and was bred! I hate to see this! Obviously her body wasn't
ready to conceive as she is not in foal.

Some interesting older broodmares in this sale.
#48 Galileo's Star (2000) Lil E. Tee x June Gale- dam of Uncontested, in foal to Tiznow
#55 Glow Ruby Go (1999) Rubiano x Tiara Glow - dam of Riding the River
#299 Zarzuela (1999) Seattle Slew x Hard to Copy by Mr. Prospector - not many Seattle Slew mares available for sale nowadays, but she hasn't produced much. Last sold for $33k at KEENOV08 so I have a feeling she'll RNA
#579 Pretty City (1998) Carson City x Pretty Special - dam of Lear's Princess and Pretty City Dancer, i/f to Empire Maker
#588 Receivership (2000) End Sweep x Alarming Prospect - dam of Palace, i/f to Medaglia d'Oro

#579 Pretty City (1998) Carson City x Pretty Special - dam of Lear's Princess and Pretty City Dancer, i/f to Empire Maker

She's reaching that age where pensioning is just around the corner, but it would be worth buying her just for the foal she's carrying. And then pension her.

April foal too, so no reason to breed her back.

These old gals in the sales do often go for cheap (<$10k) with buyers knowing they have limited future opportunities, but her, Galileo's Star and Receivership should at least reach mid 5 figures.
