Dr. Norman Umphenour and partner Roxanne Martin, buying under the name Anzac, secured the Discreet Cat mare Lady Glamour from the Keeneland June Digital Sale June 29 for a final bid of $115,000—the top price of the sale.
Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency as Hip 12, the 2017 mare out of Repeta (Broken Vow ) finished racing in 2020 and sold in foal to Not This Time . She was a black-type performer as a 2-year-old, with a second in the Rags to Riches Stakes at Churchill Downs and a third in both the Debutante Stakes and Golden Rod Stakes (G2) at the Louisville track, for total earnings of $126,170. Her half brother Mucho Del Oro , by Mucho Macho Man , has won the past three times out at Santa Anita Park, incurring an 83 Beyer Speed Figure in his last start June 12.
“Our approach to these digital sales is more like a private sale than it is a public sale,” Mark Taylor of Taylor Made Sales said. “The consignor must work the phones and emails to get the word out that these horses are going through and reach out to the audience that will be most interested.”
Anzac sold the More Than Ready mare Felicita during the 2020 Keeneland December Digital Sale in foal to Not This Time for $250,000 to Alpha Delta Stables. The mare is a half sister to Dayoutoftheoffice (Into Mischief ) winner of the Frizette Stakes (G1), Schuylerville Stakes (G3), and second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) last year.
“They went through the breeding season and recently decided they wanted to take some of the money and reinvest in another nice mare, since they had sold their mare back in December,” Taylor said. “This mare was on the site and the mare they sold last year was in foal to Not This Time and this one was in foal to Not This Time, so it was a nice way to come full circle.”
Dan Kjorsvik paid $35,000 for King Jack , a winner in three of his four career starts, including the 2019 Gallant Bob Stakes (G2). By Jimmy Creed out of the Tapit mare Light Shine , King Jack is from the family of graded stakes winners Tar Heel Mom and Scrappy T . He was offered as a stallion prospect.
The one-day mixed sale grossed $181,500 for nine horses sold. Summary results are available by clicking here.
