The second-highest-priced yearling to ever sell at the Keeneland January horses of all ages sale and an apparently deep group of horses at the start of Fares Farm's dispersal helped the Lexington sale stay strong through day two Jan. 8.
Hurstland Farm's Alfred Nuckols took several moments to gather his thoughts after Regis Farms purchased his Street Sense filly for $1.45 million. The half sister to group I winner Certify and grade I winner Cry and Catch Me is the second-highest-priced newly turned yearling ever sold at Keeneland January and the highest price out of the two-day Book One catalog.
Meanwhile, the beginning of the 79-horse Fares Farm dispersal provided depth on day two. The dispersal, consigned by Lane's End as agent, saw 29 horses reach six-figure prices including 10 that reached or surpassed $200,000. Horses from the dispersal also will be offered on Jan. 9 and 10.
