With Arrogate’s scintillating victory over Horse of the Year California Chrome in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic fresh in the minds of buyers, the dams of both horses are among the top horses to watch during Fasig-Tipton’s November sale.
The value of a Medaglia d'Oro filly consigned to the Keeneland September yearling sale increased after her half brother Arrogate romped to a Travers Stakes (gr. I) triumph in track-record time.
Win machine Wasted Tears produced another victory on the Lone Star Park turf with a repeat win in the $200,000 Ouija Board Distaff Stakes (gr. IIIT) May 31, though it wasn't as easy as her 3-10 odds suggested it would be.
Seven stakes, including the $300,000 Lone Star Park Handicap and the $200,000 Ouija Board Distaff Handicap (both gr. III), top Lone Star Million Day on May 31 at the Grand Prairie, Texas track.
