Roy and Gretchen Jackson of Barbaro fame paid $2.3 million for grade I winner Pussycat Doll Sunday during the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November select mixed sale in Lexington. They purchased the 5-year-old daughter of Real Quiet through Headley Bell of Nicoma Bloodstock.
"We're just looking to upgrade broodmare-wise and thought she had all the qualities we wanted, so we thought we would try to buy her," Roy Jackson said. "We have looked at a number of mares and thought she was one of the five or six we wanted. She had nice conformation, and she was the first one on our list. We don't really know what we'll do (race or retire her), but she'll be a broodmare for us eventually."
John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency, agent, consigned Pussycat Doll, who raced for Mike Pegram. She won the 2007 Santa Monica Handicap (gr. I), the 2006 Humana Distaff Handicap (gr. I), and the 2005 La Brea Stakes (gr. I).
