Keeneland January sale: Five hips to watch on Day Five


Hip No. 1584, Lenglen, 4-year-old filly, by Langfuhr – Double Jeopardy, by Horse Chestnut, consigned by Darby Dan Farm, agent.

Selling as a racing or broodmare prospect, Lenglen found the winner’s circle once in nine starts during her debut campaign last year for earnings of $10,154. She is out of Horse Chestnut mare Double Jeopardy, who has produced three winners from two to start. Where her real potential lies, though, is as a broodmare prospect. Her dam is a half-sister to multiple Grade 2 winner and young sire Gone Astray, as well as German Group 3-placed winner Contentious. Her third dam is champion Inside Information, who herself was the dam of champion Smuggler.

Hip No. 1633, Pegasus’s Window, 5-year-old mare, by Andromeda’s Hero – Bedroom Window, by Linkage, property of Quiet Time Farm.

This New York-bred broodmare prospect was the last of 15 foals out of dependable mare Bedroom Window. Females out of the dam have proven to be successful producers in their own right, with five producing foals that have either won or placed in stakes races. On the racetrack, Pegasus’s Window won one of six starts for earnings of $9,776.

Hip No. 1740, a 3-year-old filly, by Pure Prize – Vickey Jane, by Royal Academy, consigned by Select Sales, agent.

This unraced broodmare prospect is a half-sister to Grade 2-placed stakes winner Yankee Bravo, out of the Royal Academy mare Vickey Jane, who has produced three winners from as many to race. She is from the family of Grade 1 winner and sire Siphon, Grade 2 winners Spring House and Cool Conductor, and Brazilian Group 1 winners Verinha, Chan Tong, and Ivoire.

Hip No. 1820, a yearling colt, by Pollard’s Vision – D’Enough, by D’Accord, consigned by Patricia Clark, agent.

A half-brother to Grade 1 winner and sire D’Wildcat, this Illinois-bred colt is out of the stakes-placed winning D’Accord mare D’Enough, who has produced six winners from as many to race. He is from the family of Grade 2 winner Sail to Rome.

Hip No 1839, El Gato Bueno, 6-year-old mare, by El Corredor – One Bad Cat, by Mountain Cat, consigned by Bluewater Sales, agent.
