Playa Maya, the dam of 2010 Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (gr. I) winner Uncle Mo , sold for $1.65 million Nov. 7 during the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November breeding stock auction in Lexington. M.V. Magnier signed the sale ticket for the winning 10-year-old daughter of Arch.
Magnier is the son of Coolmore Stud managing partner John Magnier.
Consigned by Craig and Holly Bandoroff’s Denali Stud, agent for Respite Farm, Play Maya finished third in the 2004 Dade Turf Classic Stakes at Ellis Park and the 2003 Lagniappe Stakes at Delta Downs.
“She is a very nice mare,” M.V. Magnier said. “Uncle Mo was very impressive on Saturday, wasn’t he? He looks like a proper horse.”
Uncle Mo (by Indian Charlie) also captured this year’s Champagne Stakes (gr. I) and is undefeated in three career races.
Playa Maya is in foal to Broken Vow . She is out of the winning Dixieland Band mare Dixie Slippers, who is a half sister to grade III winner Woods of Windsor (by Woodman).
