Washington breeder Theiline (Ty) Scheumann has returned La Brea Stakes (gr. I) winner Downthedustyroad to trainer Bob Baffert's Santa Anita barn after buying her for $1.5 million at the Keeneland January mixed sale.
Keeneland closed out its 2007 January horses of all ages sale by establishing a record gross for the first sale of the year while the average and median both fell from last year's comparable numbers.
