NOVEMBER SALE TO TEST LONG-TERM MARKETS

The important 2012 Keeneland November breeding stock sale is the first major international mixed sale this season.

By Joe Nevills The road to recovery for the North American bloodstock market has featured many small steps over the course of the past few years. Those steps have gotten larger in 2013, with record-setting sales throughout the 2-year-old and yearling sale seasons and a return to a form not seen since the market crash of the late 2000s in the industry’s bellwether auction, the Keeneland September yearling sale. Next, the industry’s long-term futures market – broodmares and weanlings –

will be tested in the Keeneland November breeding stock sale Nov. 5-14 in Lexington, Ky. Each session of the 10-day sale begins at 10 a.m. Eastern. A total of 3,602 horses were cataloged for this year’s sale, down 9 percent from 3,958 last year. Included in this year’s catalog, before outs, are 1,739 broodmares and broodmare prospects, 1,364 weanlings, 481 horses of racing age, 10 yearlings, and eight stallions. As the first major international mixed sale this season, the Keeneland November sale will be a key measuring stick for a segment of the market that often is

the slowest to react to change, both from industry trends and from outside stimuli. With that said, the breeding stock sector will have ground to make up once the headline-grabbing seven-figure horses leave the ring and the rank-andfile of the middle market begins to take shape, as buyers and sellers continue to recover from the economic crash of 2008 and the auction market’s bottoming out in 2010. Geoffrey Russell, Keeneland’s director of sales, said time has helped heal those

Continued from page 13 wounds, and that another year of distance should maintain the positive trajectory. “The magic year of 2008 that we seem to go back to had such a huge effect on everybody, but it made people who are into long-term investments [scarce]; they didn’t want to own there for a while, so we had a lot of mares that were sold,” Russell said. “I think now that we’re getting further away from 2008, we’re starting to see people wanting to reinvest into broodmares and look to the long term. Having successful yearling sales for the past few years, it gets the confidence to come back into the market for people who are into long-term investments.” A common thread at this year’s major auctions has been a renewed willingness among buyers to go after what they want, especially for horses at the top end of the market. This, in turn, has trickled down to the middle and lower levels, as illustrated by the strong median figures at this autumn’s yearling sales. Russell said he expected buyer interest to make the leap into the next segment of the market at the Keeneland November sale. He also noted that the success of weanling-to-yearling pinhooks in 2013 could motivate buyers of young horses to return in force. “It’s slightly different, but I think the buying enthusiasm is strong at the moment, so I think that will carry on,” Russell said. “Yes, we’re going away from the yearlings and into the production

area, and there’s a lot of people who don’t buy mares and foals – they just want to buy the offspring – but the enthusiasm of the market is very good.” An increased demand for breeding stock would indeed be a positive indicator of the market’s recovery. However, the relatively slow reflexes of the mixed sector, compared with yearling and juvenile markets, where horses are closer to reaching the racetrack, means that the supply probably will need time to catch up to that demand. As the industry changed through the lean years, numerous farms culled their broodmare bands and elected to keep a tight grip on the very best stock they had. Reiley McDonald of Eaton Sales predicted that this would put a premium on highquality broodmares during the November sales. “I’d have to expect that the broodmare market’s going to be strong just because it seems as if fewer and fewer really good mares are coming to market anymore,” McDonald said. “It seems as if this business has grown in the number of people with large amounts of capital behind them, and those people want to be in the breeding business and don’t want to sell their horses that have been good broodmares for them, or sell good racemares that are potentially top broodmares.” Even venturing into the middle and lower markets, the clearance rates of this year’s sales and the number of horses attracting several bidders gave consignors hope that the momentum will carry

into the breeding stock portion of the sales calendar. “All the yearling sales were positive, and I think it’ll have to transfer into November on every level of the market,” said Pat Costello of Paramount Sales. “The middle market was strong in September, so I think people will want to replenish mares.” The ever-looming factor leading up to both Keeneland November and the FasigTipton Kentucky select fall mixed sale that precedes it, is the impact that the Breeders’ Cup will have on the catalog updates. The fallout from the marquee races will be felt twofold when the focus shifts to the auction ring. The first and most directly affected group will be the horses who will ship in after competing in a Breeders’ Cup race. A win or strong effort on that stage can greatly spike buyer enthusiasm on a horse. Among the horses entered in the Breeders’ Cup who are cataloged in the Keeneland November sale are champion Groupie Doll (Filly and Mare Sprint), Lady of Shamrock (Filly and Mare Turf), Renee’s Titan (Filly and Mare Sprint), Street Girl (Distaff), Worldly (Marathon), and Laugh Track (Sprint). “If you ever want to see what a Breeders’ Cup win can do, just look at Royal Delta,” Russell said, referencing the twotime champion mare who sold to Ben Leon at the 2011 November sale for $8.5 million

Continued from page 15 just days after winning the Ladies’ Classic. “She was going to be very expensive, but I think the [price] was obviously based on the fact that she won at the Breeders’ Cup the Friday beforehand.” The second group subject to the ripple effect of the Breeders’ Cup will be the broodmares and weanlings who are producers or siblings of Breeders’ Cup runners. While the potential price swing is perhaps not as dramatic as for the horses who run in the races themselves, a timely major update never hurts when trying to sell a horse.

Also of note, the November sale will feature a horses-of-racing-age portion Nov. 12, largely consisting of offerings who competed for WinStar Farm, Stonestreet Stables, and Adena Springs. These will be offered as racing or breeding prospects. “WinStar started that a couple years ago, and this year we have the Adena Springs consignment in there, too, so the horses-of-racing-age segment has shaped up very well,” Russell said. “It’s really gained momentum.” Last year’s Keeneland November sale finished behind the 2011 edition in average, median, and gross receipts, but it

lacked the benefit of two record-setting dispersals that helped propel trade two years ago: those of the late Edward P. Evans’s Spring Hill Farm and the late Prince Saud bin Khaled’s Palides Investments NV, which sold Royal Delta. A total of 2,414 horses sold last year for revenue of $143,025,600, down 30 percent from the 2011 sale. The average sale price of $59,248 represented a 27 percent decline, while the median fell 8 percent to $22,000. The sale was topped by Pure Clan, a multiple Grade 1-winning Pure Prize mare who sold to Borges Torrealba Holdings for $4.5 million. She went through the ring in foal to Bernardini.

Dispersals among Keeneland highlights By Nicole Russo A star-studded catalog for the Keeneland November breeding stock sale got a bit of added sparkle with the dispersals of two prominent breeding operations responsible for some of the standout fillies and mares of the past five years – E. Paul Robsham Stables and the estate of the late Eric Kronfeld. The Robsham family has been involved in racing for three decades, and Joyce Robsham continued to operate the stable following the death of her husband, Paul, in 2004. She has now elected to disperse her breeding stock; the group of 24 horses cataloged, with Lane’s End as agent, includes Grade 1 winner Awesome Maria. “It’s a terrific group of horses,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Walt Robertson said. “The percentage of mares that have either won or produced major stakes horses is just fantastic. It tells you that over the years, they only kept what worked. They have a strict culling process.” Kronfeld, best known for breeding 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, died in May at age 71 following a battle with cancer. His family has elected to disperse his breeding and young racing stock, including Eblouissante, a winning half-sister to Zenyatta. Eight horses are cataloged and will be consigned by Don Robinson’s Winter Quarter Farm near Lexington, Ky., which boarded Kronfeld’s stock and foaled and raised Zenyatta. “I think it’s a huge opportunity for the Thoroughbred industry and breeders,” Robinson said. “It’s pretty exciting to offer under other circumstances, but [had Kronfeld not died], Eblouissante would have retired [to Winter Quarter], and we would have had a number of foals from her. It’s kind of like selling the farm – that’s what’s very sad. You’re not selling the crop – you’re selling the farm.” Paul Robsham was a prominent real estate developer and philanthropist, and he and Joyce became involved in Thoroughbred racing in 1983. The couple bred and raced the Private Account mare Pretty Discreet, the winner of the Alabama Stakes in 1995. She became their foundation mare, producing Grade 1 winners and young sires Discreet Cat and Discreetly Mine, as well as the unraced Discreetly Awesome, the dam of Awesome Maria. That mare, by Maria’s Mon, earned $1,114,875 while capturing seven graded stakes, including the Grade

Discreetly Awesome, in foal to Malibu Moon, and Awesome Maria, in foal to Giant’s Causeway, are part of the dispersal. Also included are Discreetly Awesome’s 2-year-old filly by Street Cry, her yearling Bernardini colt, and her weanling Smart Strike filly. Other Robsham dispersal horses include Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes winner R Heat Lightning, in foal to Bernardini, and her weanling Medaglia d’Oro filly. The Robshams also campaigned last year’s Kentucky Oaks runner-up, Broadway’s Alibi, who will be offered in foal to Smart Strike. Kronfeld, the owner of a New York-based investment company, became involved in the racing industry in 1975 with the purchase of two horses in England. Among his early successes was Mrs. Penny, a dual champion in England. Kronfeld’s association with Robinson began in the 1980s, when the owner sent mares to board at Winter Quarter – including the winning Forli mare For the Flag. The stakes-producing mare foaled the Kris S. filly Vertigineux toward the end of her broodmare career, and the latter went on to produce three standout runners in succession. After producing stakes winner Where’s Bailey and multiple Grade 1 winner and millionaire Balance, Vertigineux produced Zenyatta, a champion three seasons in succession while winning 19 of 20 starts for Jerry and Ann Moss. Eblouissante was Vertigineux’s sixth foal and the last owned by Kronfeld. He

privately sold the mare to Coolmore in 2008, when she was carrying the Bernardini filly, and negotiated a deal to keep the foal. Eblouissante, trained by John Shirreffs, won her first two career starts, both in California, before finishing last of six in the Grade 3 Shuvee Handicap on July 20 at Saratoga after becoming unruly in the gate. The filly, who has posted four works since, is offered as a racing or broodmare prospect. “This particular filly, I think, is just extraordinary,” Robinson said of Eblouissante. “She probably couldn’t be bought if she were a stakes winner. She’s by the right sire, she’s gorgeous, she’s big and beautiful, and John Shirreffs will tell you she has a ton of ability. It’s just a tricky family to train, and she’s always been with, I think, the best guy in the universe to ever train that family.” In addition to Eblouissante, the dispersal includes four young, unraced fillies whom Kronfeld had planned to campaign. This group includes 2-year-olds Pine and Dandy (Lemon Drop Kid), who is from the family of Horse of the Year Havre de Grace and Grade 1 winner Riskaverse, and Lady Catelyn (Malibu Moon), who is from the family of Grade 1 winners Pleasant Home, Point of Entry, and Pine Island. “It’s just a terrific honor that they have chosen us [to offer the consignment],” Robertson said. “I just wish Eric was still here. He left us in a hurry. He’s been a friend of mine for a long time.” For more on the breeding programs of Robsham Stables and Eric Kronfeld, please visit www.drf.com/breeding.

Weanlings from New sires Arrive By Patrick Reed A diverse group of young sires whose first crops arrived this year will be represented at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November and Keeneland November sales, a roster that includes three Eclipse Award winners and a proven 1 1/4-mile to 1 1/2-mile classic dirt horse who each have more than 18 weanlings cataloged. Drosselmeyer, the upset winner of the 2010 Belmont Stakes and the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Classic, leads all first-crop weanling sires at Keeneland with 29 foals cataloged and also has one offered at Fasig-Tipton. The 6-year-old Distorted Humor horse had stamina to spare when racing for owner WinStar Farm and reached his peak form, aside from his Belmont win, at age 4. Those attributes make Drosselmeyer, who now stands at WinStar, a sire whose first crop might be best perceived as long-term investments by buyers with Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup aspirations. The reverse would be true for Uncle Mo, the champion 2-year-old male of 2010 who now stands at Ashford Stud. The 5-yearold son of Indian Charlie was the textbook definition of a ready-made racehorse in 2010, when he achieved two triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures in his first three starts and tallied two impressive Grade 1 wins in that span. He has 26 weanlings cataloged at Keeneland and three at FasigTipton.

Drosselmeyer will be represented by 29 weanlings at Keeneland’s November sale. Three-time Eclipse Award winner Gio Ponti has 19 weanlings cataloged at the November sales (16 at Keeneland, three at Fasig-Tipton). Castleton Lyons’s 7-year-old son of Tale of the Cat is one of two prominent turf horses whose first crop arrive

at the sales this fall, with the other being Ashford’s Cape Blanco. That Irish-bred 5-year-old, 2011’s champion turf male, is by the incredibly successful Galileo and has 21 weanlings cataloged at Keeneland along with one at Fasig-Tipton.

Fasig-Tipton offers premier stock By Patrick Reed Fasig-Tipton’s one-session November sale, to begin on Monday at 4 p.m. Eastern at the company’s Newtown Paddocks headquarters in Lexington, Ky., arrives on the heels of North American horse racing’s showcase event and heralds what is always a hectic, eventful two weeks in the auction sector. The November sale habitually brings to market several broodmare prospects fresh off performances in the previous weekend’s Breeders’ Cup races and is held just prior to Keeneland’s lengthy November breeding stock sale. This year’s edition will occur the night before the 10-day Keeneland sale begins and contains a bevy of accomplished racemares heading into their second careers as well as a group of weanlings, several from first-crop sires. North American sales have enjoyed their best year in recent history as they recover from a deep and painful market correction that affected the entire Thoroughbred industry in 2008-10. This summer and fall’s yearling auctions have posted encouraging results, to say the least, and many within the industry expect that momentum to carry on through the breeding stock sales, as buyers begin to take a long-term view toward the prospect of an even stronger economic climate in the years ahead. The Jockey Club’s release of foal-crop and mares-bred statistics for 2013 indicated that the decline in North American breeding activity, though still evident, has slowed. This offers added support to the notion that equilibrium of sorts between buyers and sellers is being reached, which should continue to strengthen the market. The Fasig-Tipton November sale is unique due to its brevity and its concentration of top-class broodmares but still should give an early indication of how the breeding stock sales season will play out (the first sizable mixed sale, held by the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co. in mid-October, posted healthy gains in nearly every category, albeit at a lower market level). The general sense among consignors is one of confidence in the North American bloodstock market’s recovery, tempered with a realistic outlook about the larger economy and its nagging problems. “It was nice to see some new names buying some of those seven-figure horses [at the Keeneland September yearling sale], but I think the most positive thing I

The stock markets are at an all-time high, or close to it, but it doesn’t feel to me like the economy is rolling like it should, so I don’t think we’re going to see massive gains. But I expect [the November sales] to be really strong – as strong as we’ve seen in the last five or six years.” Those sensational results at the recent

Keeneland September sale have created a strong tailwind heading into both the Fasig-Tipton and Keeneland November auctions, especially for consignors with elite horses to offer. That should help maintain a high level of trade as buyers seek to replenish their stables with both young, well-bred foals and the mares who can produce them, with an eye on next year’s yearling sales. “We’re excited,” said Meg Levy of Bluewater Sales. “I think the good stuff that’s happened this summer and fall in the

You need the factory.” This issue went to press before the Breeders’ Cup on Friday and Saturday, but regardless of the results, Three Chimneys will be bringing a strong group of fillies and mares to the Fasig-Tipton November sale. Among other notables, it is consigning Grade 2 winner Authenticity, a 6-year-old Quiet American mare entered in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff, and Mizdirection, a 5-year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast and the defending winner of the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, who was entered in that race again. Both are offered as racing or broodmare prospects. A variety of additional stakes-winning broodmares or broodmare prospects are sprinkled throughout Fasig-Tipton’s November catalog, and one Grade 1 winner who should vie for the sale’s top price will be the Bluewater-consigned In Lingerie, a $700,000 earner by classic winner and stamina-influence sire Empire Maker. In Lingerie is offered in foal to two-time European Horse of the Year Frankel, who stood his first season as a stallion this year and attracted a star-studded book of mares from around the world. Grade 1 winner Mi Sueno, by Pulpit, will be offered in foal to Frankel by Bluewater as Hip No. 195.

Mastercraftsman, a dual Group 1 winner at age 2, has sired 24 winners, including four stakes winners, in his first crop.

JOHN P. SPARKMAN Sea The Stars, Europe’s Horse of the Year in 2009, naturally dominated the hype machine surrounding prospects for leading European freshman sire this year, and, indeed, he has done well enough, with 10 winners through last Monday, including Group 3 winner My Titania. However, the standout among first-year sires in Europe has been the horse who came closest to beating Sea The Stars during his undefeated 3-year-old season: Mastercraftsman, who forced the champion into an all-out drive for his one-length victory in the Group 1 Juddmonte International Stakes. Mastercraftsman almost certainly sealed freshman sire honors in Europe for 2013 on Oct. 26, when his sons Kingston Hill and Craftsman won the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy and the Group 3 Killavullan Stakes, respectively. By Danehill Dancer out of Starlight

Dreams, by Black Tie Affair, Mastercraftsman was bred in Ireland by Paul Shanahan’s Lynch Bages and purchased privately by the Coolmore partnership of Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor, and Derrick Smith, for whom Shanahan serves as racing manager. The precocious Mastercraftsman won his first start at 2 at The Curragh in May 2008 and returned to that course almost two months later to capture the Group 2 Railway Stakes. Both wins came over yielding ground that never really suited him. Mastercraftsman showed a much better turn of foot on firm ground a month later, running away with the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes and beating Art Connoisseur by 4 1/2 lengths. In his next start, heavy going bogged him down again in the Group 1 National Stakes at seven furlongs, and he just held on to beat Shaweel by a nose. That third hard race might have taken too much out of him because he did not show his true form three weeks later at Longchamp, finishing fourth behind winner Naaqoos in the Group 1 Prix JeanLuc Lagardere. Despite that defeat, Mastercraftsman

was rated as Europe’s champion 2-year-old male, but he did not have a prep race before the 2000 Guineas the following spring. The tall, leggy colt did not appear comfortable coming down the hill into the Dip, and by the time he began to rally up the final hill at Newmarket, Sea The Stars was gone, and Mastercraftsman finished fifth, beaten 4 1/4 lengths. With Sea The Stars awaiting the Epsom Derby, Mastercraftsman had a much easier task in the Irish 2000 Guineas, and he duly romped to a 4 1/2-length win over Rayeni. Next, in the Group 1 St. James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, Mastercraftsman showed his Newmarket form was all wrong by beating Delegator (who finished second behind Sea The Stars in the English Guineas) by a neck. Mastercraftsman’s trainer, Aidan O’Brien, had been trying to beat Sea The Stars all season, sending out Fame And Glory to run second to the champion in the Epsom Derby and Rip Van Winkle to occupy the same position in the Group 1 Eclipse Stakes. Mastercraftsman made

Continued from page 21 Sea The Stars work harder than he had all season in the Juddmonte International at York at about 1 5/16 miles, as he followed his pacesetters Georgebernardshaw and Set Sail before taking the lead smoothly two furlongs out, with Sea The Stars trailing. For almost a furlong, Sea The Stars could make little impression on Mastercraftsman, but he finally wore him down inside the last 100 yards to win by a length. Mastercraftsman tried Sea The Stars once more in the Irish Champion Stakes, but on softer going was beaten five lengths in third, with Fame And Glory second. Mastercraftsman subsequently easily handled Dundalk’s synthetic surface in the Group 3 Diamond Stakes, which served as a prep for the Breeders’ Cup, contested in 2009 over Santa Anita’s Pro-Ride track. In the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, Mastercraftsman broke slowly from his inside post and never was able to find a way out. The colt stuck his head inside pacesetter Midshipman at the eighth pole but then had to check when the hole closed and finished an unlucky fourth behind Furthest Land, beaten 1 1/2 lengths. Mastercraftsman retired to Coolmore Stud’s Irish headquarters in 2010 with the reputation as the best son of Danehill Dancer, England’s leading sire in 2009. Physically, though, he has little in common with his compact, muscular sire. Standing about 2 1/2 inches taller than Danehill Dancer, Mastercraftsman is a massive, powerful individual, perhaps a touch upright in his pasterns, and more closely resembles some of the leggier high-class stayers along his female line. Shanahan purchased Mastercraftsman’s dam, Starlight Dreams, in foal to Luhuk, for only $40,000 at the 2001 Keeneland November breeding stock sale, with Kate Conroy signing the ticket. Her third foal, Genuine Devotion, by Rock of Gibraltar, had already won the Grade 3 Locust Grove Handicap at Churchill Downs by the time Mastercraftsman came along, and Mastercraftsman’s full sister Famous, a $1.46 million Goffs yearling, later placed in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes. Starlight Dreams’s half-brother Matahif, by Wassl, was a stakes winner in England, and two of her half-sisters were stakes producers, but the real attraction for an ambitious breeder like Shanahan was her more distant female family. Her dam, Reves Celestes, by Lyphard, was a half-sister to English highweighted stayer

Another half-sister, Le Vague a l’Ame, by Vaguely Noble, was the dam of Grade 1 winner River Memories, by Riverman, and the family traces back to foundation mare Dangerous Dame, by Nasrullah, the ancestress of Broad Brush, Exceller, Capote, and many others. Mastercraftsman’s combination of race record, conformation, and pedigree guaranteed a large and varied book at Coolmore, and his first Northern Hemisphere crop of 131 2-year-olds already includes 24 winners through last Monday. Four of them are stakes winners, headed by Kingston Hill, Craftsman, and Group 3 Prestige Stakes winner Amazing Maria. Bred in England by Ridgecourt Stud, Kingston Hill is the fifth foal but only the second winner out of Audacieuse, a talented daughter of the great sire and broodmare sire Rainbow Quest. Trained in France by Elie Lellouche, Audacieuse placed twice at 2 but came into her own at 3, winning her maiden in her second sophomore start. Subsequently unplaced in a couple of Group 3 events, she returned to winning form in the Prix de Liancourt at Longchamp at about 1 1/4 miles in the autumn, beating Slippering by five lengths. Unplaced again behind Petrushka in the Group 1 Prix de l’Opera, Audacieuse closed out her career with another easy win going

about 1 5/16 miles in the Group 3 Prix de Flore at Saint-Cloud. Audacieuse is a half-sister to Group 3 winner Waiter’s Dream, by Oasis Dream, and multiple stakes winner Lord Jim, by Kahyasi, and her dam, the winner Sarah Georgina, by Persian Bold, is a half-sister to French classic winner Danseuse du Soir, by Thatching, and two other stakes winners from a family tracing back to the great Orby mare Orlass. Orlass is the ancestress of innumerable top European racehorses, including Hethersett, Providential, Narrator, Saraca, and American standout Droll Role. As we have learned all too often, one crop does not a sire make, but there is every reason to think that Mastercraftsman’s early success will continue. He has shuttled each season to the Southern Hemisphere, and it will be no surprise if his progeny find comparable success Down Under, given the almost complete dominance of the Danehill male line in the Antipodes. Whether that will make Mastercraftsman a better sire than his more heralded contemporary Sea The Stars is another matter entirely. Mastercraftsman was a dual Group 1 winner at 2, while Sea The Stars was only a Group 2 winner as a juvenile, so the latter’s progeny are expected to improve more with age. Still, given Mastercraftsman’s head start, Sea The Stars will have to be very good to catch him, as he did in the Juddmonte International.
