John Fort's Plum Pretty, winner of the 2011 Kentucky Oaks (gr. I), will be offered at the upcoming Keeneland November breeding stock sale as a racing/broodmare prospect, the Lexington oval announced Sept. 18. She will be consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency.
"We are very fortunate to include Plum Pretty in our November sale," said Walt Robertson, Keeneland's vice president of sales, in a release. "She's an impeccably-bred classic winner, and we are delighted to include her in our catalog."
The 4-year-old filly is by champion sire Medaglia d'Oro and out of Liszy, by A.P. Indy. A multiple graded stakes winner conditioned by Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, she won the Kentucky Oaks in a thrilling stretch duel for Fort's Peachtree Stable, besting a stellar field of 13 other fillies. Her other victories include the Apple Blossom Stakes (gr. I) at Oaklawn Park, Cotillion Stakes (gr. II) at Parx Racing in a stakes record 1:41.19, and the Sunland Park Oaks, which she won by 25 lengths.
"From a conformational standpoint, Plum Pretty exemplifies everything you look for in a classic racehorse: size, strength, balance and great depth of shoulder to go along with her remarkable presence," Fort said. "She has won at the highest level and still has a lot of race left in her. This is just a wonderful filly."
Plum Pretty has accumulated more than $1.6 million in lifetime earnings, with five wins, finishing on the board in 10 of 12 starts.
