For the second day in a row, Louisiana breeder Evelyn Benoit struck for a high-priced mare to breed to her stallion Star Guitar, going to $550,000 for Five Star Momma during the fifth session of Keeneland's November breeding stock sale.
A class drop proved successful in getting multiple grade I winner Stopchargingmaria back into the winner's circle when the mare lived up to her 3-5 odds to win the Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes.
Stopchargingmaria, the Alabama and Coaching Club American Oaks winner, drops into grade III company in Allaire DuPont Distaff (gr. III) at Pimlico Race Course May 15.
Winless in six starts this year, the $100,000 Monmouth Oaks (gr. III) offers grade II winner Seaneen Girl a good chance chance to get back to the winner's circle Aug. 10 at Monmouth Park.
Weigelia, a multiple graded stakes victor, sired his first winner when his daughter Brenda's Way scored at Pimlico April 12 in her initial start.
