Negligee, Canada’s champion juvenile filly in 2009, sold for $625,000 on Monday at the Keeneland January sale.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Negligee, the first of three Grade 1 winners set to sell Monday at Keeneland’s January sale, went for $625,000 to an unidentified buyer represented by agents Adrian Regan and Fergus Galvin of Hunter Valley Farm.

Hill 'n' Dale Sales agency sold the filly, Canada’s champion juvenile filly in 2009.

The 4-year-old Northern Afleet filly sold as a broodmare prospect and is "definitely retired," Galvin said.

"She’s for an existing client of myself and Fergus's, and I don't know what the plans are yet," Regan said after signing the ticket. "It was a little more than we wanted, but it was probably a fair price. You know, two years ago, she’d have made a good bit more."

Negligee won 2 of 9 starts, including the 2009 Alcibiades, and also placed in the Grade 2 Sands Point Stakes and two other stakes races. She earned $381,379.
