Elite Sales consigned Adorable Miss, who sold for $585,000 to Bluewater Sales as agent for an unnamed client.

No one can say Bradley Weisbord and Liz Crow of Elite Sales don’t know how to make an entrance.

The duo debuted their venture at Monday’s Fasig-Tipton sale and finished with five of the day’s six most expensive offerings.

Publicly launched in May, Elite Sales specializes in consigning horses in training and broodmare prospects fresh off the track.

Leading the group was the auction’s second-highest-priced offering, Adorable Miss, a multiple stakes-winning Kitten’s Joy filly who sold to Bluewater Sales as agent for an unnamed client for $585,000. Adorable Miss was previously owned by Mathis Stable and trained by Todd Pletcher.

“Everybody raves about how Todd Pletcher takes care of his horses, so she’s an easy one,” Weisbord said about Adorable Miss prior to the sale. “Hopefully, her new owner will be able to campaign her in Grade 1s and Grade 2s this summer. I think it’s too close to get to the Lake George or the San Clemente, given she just ran on July 4, but the next series of races, she’ll be dead live for.”
