Supreme sold for $800,000 on Jan. 8.
The stakes-winning broodmare Supreme may prove to be the star mare from the Fares Farm dispersal on Jan. 8 at the Keeneland January horses of all ages sale after selling to Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings for $800,000.
The 79-horse dispersal, consigned by Lane's End, agent, registered several six-figure prices throughout the day. About three-quarters of the way into the Tuesday, Jan. 8 session, Stonestreet went to $800,000 to land Supreme, a 6-year-old Empire Maker filly believed to be in foal to Giant's Causeway . The dispersal started on Jan. 8 and will continue through Jan. 10.
Supreme is out of the Maria's Mon mare Mon Belle, a full sister to Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Monarchos . It is not the first time Stonestreet has shown interest in the family. At the 2012 Keeneland September yearling sale, Stonestreet paid $900,000 to land a Smart Strike colt out of Mon Belle.
"She's a beautiful mare, a really, really pretty mare," said Stonestreet bloodstock advisor John Moynihan. "We thought she'd be a nice addition to our broodmare band. We bought the yearling in September. He looks to be one of our nicer yearlings, now a 2-year-old."
