Havre de Grace is the $10 million girl

Havre De Grace top story

Havre de Grace sold for $10 million at the Fasig-Tipton November sale Monday night, the highest sale price for a horse since 2008.

The 2011 Horse of the Year was bought by Mandy Pope of Whisper Hill Farm. The 5-year-old mare was from Rick Porter’s Fox Hill Farm.

 

She is one of only a handful of horses to ever sell for $10 million or more. The world record for a horse at public auction was set in 2006 when The Green Monkey sold for $16 million.

Havre de Grace is only the second reigning horse of the year to sell at public auction and the first in a quarter century. Lady’s Secret sold for $5.4 million in 1987.

 

The daughter of 2005 Horse of the Year Saint Liam won nine of 16 career starts with nearly $2.6 million in earnings. She earned more than $1.6 million of that total during her championship campaign, winning five of seven races, including the Woodward against males. She finished fourth in the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Classic and won her only race in 2012 before being retired in April due to an ankle injury.

Holy crap. That's quite a bit of money for a broodmare.
