Foerever Partners, brought top price at early portion of Keeneland's first sale session.
Forever Partners, winner of the 2002 Colleen Stakes, sold for $410,000 Monday during the first few hours of the Keeneland January horses of all ages sale in Lexington.

Frank Stronach purchased the 4-year-old daughter of Not For Love, who was offered as a racing or broodmare prospect. Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent, consigned the filly.

"She was a very, very fast filly and very talented," said Dan Hall, the general manager for Stronach's Adena Springs Farm in Kentucky. "She also has all the physical qualities that we like. She's very well balanced, and she has a great hind leg. She's a beautiful filly."

Hall said Forever Partners might be bred to Golden Missile, an Adena Springs stallion.

Forever Partners, who also finished second in the Spinaway Stakes (gr. I) and third in the Miss Preakness Stakes (gr. III), is a half-sister to added-money winner Pal's Partner (by Rakeen). Their dam, My New Pal, is a 13-year-old winning daughter of Saratoga Six.

Forever Partners raced for Skeedattle Associates, which purchased her for $50,000 at the 2001 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern fall yearling sale.
