Keeneland Day-1: US$1.6m Gone West Colt
Agent Seth Senkin (acting for B. Wayne Hughes) paid US$1.6 million for a Gone West colt who is a half-brother to Gr1 winner & sire Golden Missile. The colt (consigned by Gainesway Stud) is out of multiple Gr3 winner Santa Catalina (by Cure The Blues). Senkin told thoroughbredtimes.com: "He's a very nice individual with a good look, & he's by a sire of sires. He just had a really nice way about him. We looked at him 4 times & he showed class every time. Mr Hughes has a particular interest in horses with sire potential."
