Grade I winner Island Fashion, who is in foal to 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper, sold for $950,000 around noon during the Jan. 12 opening session of the Keeneland January horses of all ages auction in Lexington. Naohiro Hosoda of the Shadai Corp. wrote the name of Katsumi Yoshida, the owner of Northern Farm in Japan, on the sale ticket.
Island Fashion was scratched from Sunday's El Encino Stakes (gr. II) and will point to next Sunday's Santa Monica Handicap (gr. I) instead, trainer Marcelo Polanco said Sunday.
