Grade 1 Winner Al's Gal Consigned to Keeneland Nov.

E. P. Taylor Stakes winner is in foal to Medaglia d'Oro.

Al's Gal, winner of the 2016 E. P. Taylor Stakes (G1T) at Woodbine, will be offered in foal to leading sire Medaglia d'Oro  at Keeneland's 2017 November breeding stock sale. Al's Gal will be consigned to the sale by James Keogh (Grovendale), agent.

Al's Gal won eight of her 27 starts and retired with earnings of $749,775. In the E. P. Taylor, she bested a field of 12 fillies and mares with a hard-fought win from off the pace.

"She is good-looking, sound, and honest," said Tom Ryan of SF Bloodstock. "She is in foal to Medaglia d'Oro, who has sired five grade 1 winners so far this year. His Keeneland Book 1 average is over $600,000."

A 6-year-old daughter of English Channel , Al's Gal is a full sister to stakes winner Ann of the Dance and a half sister to Brazilian group 2 winner May Be Now.  

"Keeneland is pleased to have the opportunity to offer Al's Gal, a young mare with demonstrated talent and class, in the November Sale," said Keeneland vice president of racing and sales Bob Elliston. "She will be a highly sought-after addition to any number of major breeding programs."

The Keeneland November sale runs Nov. 7-18.
