She Says It Best Sold Privately by Bowling and Partners

She Says It Best, winner of the 2005 Darley Alcibiades Stakes (gr. II), has been sold privately after being retired from competition following an injury. The price was $500,000, according to Carl Bowling, who bred the 3-year-old daughter of Stormy Atlantic and campaigned her with trainer Vickie Foley and partners.

Reynolds Bell Jr. Thoroughbred Services purchased She Says It Best for a partnership that was represented in the transaction by Randy Gullatt, the manager of Steve Davison's Twin Creeks Farm near Versailles, Ky.

She Says It Best, who suffered a slab fracture in her left front knee on Jan. 21 during a workout at Gulfstream Park, had been scheduled to be sold during the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky winter mixed sale in Lexington Feb. 12 and 13.

She Says It Best captured four of her eight career races and earned $382,918. She won the Anna M. Fisher Debutante Stakes at Ellis Park and finished second in the Golden Rod Stakes (gr. II) and the Pepsi Bassinet Stakes.
