Broodmare prospect Careless Jewel, who captured the 2009 Alabama Stakes (gr. I), brought $1.95 million Nov. 7 during the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November select mixed sale. Eric Guillot bought the 4-year-old daughter of Tapit for Mike Moreno’s Southern Equine Stables.
John Sikura’s Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency, agent, consigned Careless Jewel, who raced for Donver Stable. She also won the 2009 editions of the Fitz Dixon Cotillion Stakes (gr. II) and the Delaware Oaks (gr. II).
“Mike and I are all about having foundation mares and this is one that fits our bill," said Guillot, who is Southern Equine's trainer and general manager. "Her body, her length, her pedigree, and her race record are what we look for. She’s going to be a nice addition to the Southern Equine broodmare band.”
Careless Jewel is out of the unraced Hennessy mare Sweet and Careless, who is a half sister to grade I winner Subordination (by Mt. Livermore) and added-money winner Domination (by Prized).
