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."
