Keeneland Nov Day-13: US$100,00 Kitalpha Colt
In the US auction ring, Dr Lisa Lex paid top price of US$100,000 for a weanling colt by Kingmambo’s full-brother Kitalpha (out of dual stakes-winning 14-year-old Mr Sparkles mare Sparklin Lil) during the final session at the 13-day Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale in Kentucky. The colt (consigned by War Horse Place) is a half-brother to stakes-winning 6YO sprinter Twin Sparks (Twining-Sparklin Lil) who established a world-record of 1min 6.49sec for 6 furlongs on dirt, when blitzing his rivals by 11.25-lengths in winning the Caballos Del Sol Handicap at Turf Paradise in Arizona last weekend.
