The Cal-bred filly was consigned by Andy Havens' Havens Bloodstock Agency for Shields Thoroughbreds. Havens Bloodstock was the sales top consignor, selling 28 head for $763,200, to average $27,257.Brocklebank said the filly, a full sister to stakes winner Race For Glory, would be sent to Utah and possibly offered in the March 2007 Barretts 2-year-olds in training sale. "We'll just see what happens," he said. "I just loved everything about her and I loved her brother. Hopefully, the next guy will love her as much as I did."
