Wickedly Perfect, winner of the Darley Alcibiades Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland in 2010, returned to Keeneland and brought $800,000 during the opening session of the January horses of all ages sale in Lexington. The 3-year-old daughter of Congrats made a mid-afternoon appearance in the auction ring Jan. 10.
Naohiro Hosoda, acting on behalf of Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farm in Japan, signed the sale ticket for Wickedly Perfect, who was offered as a racing or broodmare prospect. A bone chip in a knee ended Wickedly Perfect’s 2010 campaign following her Alcibiades triumph in October and the gray or roan filly had to undergo surgery.
“There are quite a few nice looking fillies, and I think yes (she was our pick of the sale),” Hosoda said.
