Keeneland Day-1: US$1.4m Lemon Drop Kid Colt
Agent Michael Goodbody (buying for for Gainsborough Stud Management) paid US$1.4 million for a Lemon Drop Kid colt who is a 3/4 brother to European stars Divine Proportions & Whipper. The colt (consigned by Lane's End as agent & bred in Kentucky by Gary Middlebrook) is out of French-bred stakes-winning Sadler's Wells mare Myth To Reality (dam of dual French classic winner Divine Proportions & multiple Gr1 winner Whipper). Goodbody told thoroughbredtimes.com: "He's a magnificent horse with a stallion's pedigree. He's a very good individual & there's really nothing more to say but that."
