Diva Delite, dam of five-time grade 1 winner Midnight Bisou, will be consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent for Breeze Easy, at The November Sale in Lexington, Ky., Nov. 4. She will be offered in foal to undefeated Triple Crown winner Justify .
Midnight Bisou, a 2015 daughter of Midnight Lute , is compiling an Eclipse Award-caliber season with six wins in six starts. Her victories include the prestigious Apple Blossom Handicap (G1), Ogden Phipps Stakes (G1), and Personal Ensign Stakes Presented by Lia Infiniti (G1). She also won the Azeri Stakes (G2), Molly Pitcher Stakes (G3), and Houston Ladies Classic Stakes (G3) this year.
Midnight Bisou was also a division leader as a 3-year-old, capturing the Santa Anita Oaks (G1) and Cotillion Stakes (G1). Remarkably, all 11 of her wins—including her maiden victory in the Santa Ynez Stakes (G2)—have come in graded stakes company. She has never been worse than third in a 17-race career that has included 16 stakes. She has earnings of $3,245,000.
Diva Delite, a graded stakes winner by Repent, is also the dam of Stage Left, who placed at 2 in last year's Sapling Stakes.
"We can't wait to bring Diva Delite to the market," Taylor Made's Alex Payne said. "She's shown her ability to throw a future Hall of Fame filly like Midnight Bisou already, and the best is yet to come for her."
Diva Delite will be one of the first mares offered in foal to Justify, a son of Scat Daddy who had six victories by a combined 23 3/4 lengths from seven to 12 furlongs. The foal Diva Delite carries is free of any inbreeding within four generations, according to Taylor Made.
