Ponche de Leona, dam of Mucho Macho Man, failed to meet her reserve Monday night at the Fasig-Tipton sale.

Pilfer, dam of multiple Grade 1 winner To Honor and Serve, sold in foal to Bernardini for $1.95 million to Borges Torrealba Holdings at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall mixed sale Monday night.

Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, Pilfer, an 11-year-old stakes winner by Deputy Minister, is carrying a full sibling to To Honor and Serve, her only winner to date.

To Honor and Serve is a six-time graded stakes winner from ages 2 to 4, with his Grade 1 victories coming in the 2011 Cigar Mile Handicap and the 2012 Woodward Stakes. The millionaire colt concluded his career with an unplaced effort in the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Saturday at Santa Anita and will enter stud in 2013 at Gainesway Farm.

Out of the stakes-winning Miswaki mare Misty Hour, Pilfer is a half-sister to Grade 2 winner India and stakes winner Sing Softly.

Two hips later, Ponche de Leona, dam of another of 2012’s leading older males, Mucho Macho Man, failed to meet her reserve, being bought back on a final bid of $1.4 million.

The stakes-winning Ponche mare, consigned by Blake-Albina Thoroughbred Services, agent, was offered in foal to Tapit.
