Lane’s End Sales recently wrapped up another successful November sales season with a pair of seven-figure mares and series of big transactions that contributed to over $14.1 million in receipts.
Kicking things off was the single-session Fasig-Tipton November Sale, where Lane’s End sold the exciting prospect Gamay Noir for $1.1 million. Longtime Lane’s End client Summer Wind Farm purchased the 5-year-old daughter of Harlan’s Holiday, whose wins on the track including the G3 Obeah S. and G3 Rampart S. Gamay Noir sold in foal to Tapit.
Lane’s End kept the moment going into Keeneland November. On the first day of the marathon event, Lane’s End sold Colonial Flag to Alpha Delta Stables for $1.6 million. Reynolds Bell, agent, signed the winning slip for the graded-winning half-sister to the G1 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf heroine Shared Account.
Also on the first day of Keeneland November, Lane’s End and Bridlewood Farm hooked up for two big transactions. John and Leslie Malone’s Florida-based operation went to $900,000 for the Canadian champion Embur’s Song, a multiple graded stakes winner who sold in foal to More Than Ready.
That came just off the heels of Bridledwood’s purchase of Brazen Persuasion, in foal to Speightstown, for $700,000.
Darley Management purchased the top-priced weanling from Lane’s End November drafts, an eye-catching Medaglia d’Oro colt from the young Grade 1 winner Emma’s Encore.
Other highlights included the sale of CITY ZIP’s multiple graded performer Every Way, in foal to Tapit, who went to SF Bloodstock for $450,000.
Margaret O’Toole saw fit to go to $410,000 for Passion Overlow, a Hennessy mare with a big European page who was offered in foal to QUALITY ROAD.
Good luck to all the winning bidders, and thanks to Lane’s End’s valued clients!
