Email

Hip No. 72, Inglorious, b. m., 2008, by Hennessy—Noble Strike, by Smart Strike, consigned by Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency, agent.
Canada’s champion 3-year-old filly of 2011 sells as a broodmare prospect, following an on-track career that was highlighted by a victory in the Queen’s Plate Stakes, a Canadian classic. The 5-year-old mare has won five of 16 career starts for earnings of $1,421,222, with five career stakes wins and five more graded stakes placings in the U.S. and Canada. Bred in Ontario by Arosa Farms, Inglorious is out of the stakes-winning Smart Strike mare Noble Strike, whose three winners from as many foals to race also includes 2012 Prince of Wales Stakes winner Dixie Strike and stakes-placed winner Sebastian’s Song. She is from the family of Grade 2 winner Abigailthewife and Grade 3 winner Krieger.

Hip No. 73, In Lingerie, b. m., 2009, by Empire Maker—Cat Chat, by Storm Cat, consigned by Bluewater Sales, agent.
In Lingerie would be an attractive offering regardless of her covering sire. The 4-year-old mare is a Grade 1 winner by a commercially fashionable sire and out of a mare who commanded $1.3 million as a yearling. In fact, In Lingerie was offered at last year’s Fasig-Tipton November sale and finished below her reserve with a $2.2 million bid. What makes her an even bigger blue-chip broodmare this time around is the fact that she sells in foal to European Horse of the Year Frankel. Bred in Kentucky by Colts Neck Stables, In Lingerie is out of the Grade 2-winning Storm Cat mare Cat Chat, who is the dam of two winners from four foals to race. Her second dam is champion Phone Chatter, and her page also includes Grade 1 winner and sire Dixie Chatter and Grade 3 winner Rumor.

A Grade 1-winning racing or broodmare prospect who has tallied seven wins in 20 career starts for earnings of $1,252,679. The 5-year-old mare notched her biggest win earlier this year when victorious in the Grade 1 Santa Margarita Stakes at Santa Anita; she has three other graded stakes wins and eight graded stakes placings. Bred in Ontario by William D. Graham, Joyful Victory is out of the winning Wild Again mare Wild Lucy Black, who is the dam of four winners from five foals to race. Her most successful family members include champion Roving Boy, Grade 1 winner A Wild Ride, and Grade 3 winner Artie Hot.

Hip No. 103, Careless Jewel, gr. or ro. m., 2006, by Tapit—Sweet and Careless, by Hennessey, consigned Bluewater Sales, agent.
The Grade 1-winning mare returns to Fasig-Tipton November in foal to Bodemeister after selling at the 2010 sale for $1.95 million.

Rhumb Line’s foals also include stakes winner Corinthian’s Jewel and Group 2-placed winner Art Princess. The winning 13-year-old mare was bred in Kentucky by Dixiana Farm and Joseph Cornacchia, and is from the family of Grade/Group 3 winners Herecomesthebride, Renewed, and China Empress.

Hip No. 145, She’s a Tiger, b. f., 2011, by Tale of the Cat—Shandra Smiles, by Cahill Road, consigned by Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency, agent.
