Kentucky Yearlings Day-1: US$1.4m Awesome Again Filly
Clarence Scharbauer (now 82 & returning to the Keeneland September sale for the 1st time in 11 years) paid US$1.4 million for an Awesome Again filly (out of Hawkster mare Maggy Hawk) consigned by Gainesway (as agent for Jess Jackson's Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings). The filly is a half-sister to champion Afleet Alex. Scharbauer (whose wife & daughter raced 1988 US Horse-Of-The-Year Alysheba) told thoroughbredtimes.com: "I think this one's a racehorse. She's my pick of all the fillies in the sale. I liked the bottom side real well. I came here looking for a colt, but I got a filly too."
