Du Pont stock to be dispersed


The estate of the late Allaire du Pont will disperse her remaining Bohemia Stable mares and weanlings, starting at Keeneland's November breeding stock sale, according to Mark Reid of Walnut Green, which will handle the consignment.

The estate will offer a total of 13 mares and weanlings, led by Bohemia's homebred Grade 1 winner and millionaire, Shine Again. A 12-year-old Wild Again mare, Shine Again is in foal this year to Bernardini. She won the 2001 and 2002 Ballerina Handicaps and placed in 16 other graded stakes.

Shine Again, a daughter of the Two Punch mare Shiner, is cataloged to the Keeneland November sale.

Among the horses set to sell at Fasig-Tipton's Midlantic December mixed sale are stakes-winner Crafty Toast, a 14-year-old Crafty Prospector-Give a Toast mare currently in foal to Eddington; Crafty Toast's weanling colt by Artie Schiller; Ready to Love, a 3-year-old Not For Love-Ready mare in foal to Dance With Ravens; and a weanling Eurosilver out of Why the Wind.

The dispersal will wrap up at Keeneland's January sale. That consignment will include Grade 2 winner Shiny Band, an 11-year-old by Dixieland Band, in foal to Harlan's Holiday; multiple graded-placed Up We Go, a 13-year-old Waquoit mare and dam of Grade 1-placed Down, in foal to Not For Love; the 14-year-old Miswaki mare Why the Wind, dam of stakes-placed Why You, in foal to Yes It's True; Shine Again's 2009 Mr. Greeley colt; Crowned's 2009 Include filly; a 2009 Harlan's Holiday-Let's Coast filly; a 2009 Yes It's True-Up We Go colt; and a 2009 Stevie Wonderboy filly out of stakes-placed Why You.

Bohemia Stable bred and raced five-time Horse of the Year Kelso, who is buried at du Pont's Woodstock Farm in Chesapeake City, Md. "They're going to hold on to the farm, because it's been a family retreat," Reid said of du Pont's family. "They're selling part of the front acreage, but the bulk of Woodstock Farm that produced all the Bohemia runners will stay in the family."
