Paul Tackett talks about My Conquestadory's half sister, Hip 736, whom he is consigning in the Fasig-Tipton October Sale. Paul says this filly has had many lookers after just a day and a half and the filly reminds him of My Conquestadory in the shoulders and head.
Debuting filly My Conquestadory surprised eight male rivals with a big stretch move to capture the $205,544 TVG Summer Stakes (Can-IIT) by 3 1/4 lengths Sept. 14 on the turf at Woodbine.
Buyers and consignors talk about how they are dealing with the sharp downturns in the market at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale and other auction-related issues.
