John Malone's Bridlewood Farm was the last one standing after a prolonged bidding war to land multiple graded stakes producer Baffled, going to $3.5 million for the mare Monday night at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall selected mixed sale.

The 11-year-old Distorted Humor mare, Group 3-placed during her own racing career, sold in foal to Tapit for a full sibling to her multiple Grade 1 winner Constitution. She is also the dam of English Group 2 winner Boynton and Grade 3 winner Jacaranda.

Taylor Made Sales Agency consigned Baffled as agent.

"What can I say??” Bridlewood manager George Isaacs said. “She's got it all - looks, triple-graded stakes producer in foal to the best stallion in America. Say no more. She's what we're looking for. We're trying to develop a serious breeding program geared toward the commercial market, and she's definitely going to get a good colt.”

Baffled is a half or full sibling to three stakes winners, led by Grade 1 winner Emcee.
