Stellar Wind To Headline Keeneland November
In sales news, it has been announced by Lane's End Sales that it will consign six-time Gr1 winning mare and Eclipse Champion Stellar Wind as part of the Keeneland November Sale, reports thoroughbreddailynews.com. The John Sadler trained superstar is three-for-three at Gr1 level this year with an overall record of 10 wins and 3 placings from only 15 starts and $2.2 million and change in earnings. Sadler commented on the announcement, "Stellar Wind is without a doubt one of the classiest horses I've ever been around, and is everything you could want in a racehorse and a broodmare prospect." Owner Kosta Hronis of Hronis Racing was reflective, "It's been an absolute privilege to campaign a mare of Stellar Wind's caliber. Stellar Wind has brought me and my family many thrills, and with the GI Breeders' Cup Distaff at Del Mar this year, we're hoping there might be a few more." With a page that includes Gr1 Met Mile winner Mor Spirit as well as Gr1-winning 2YO Great Hunter, Stellar Wind is sure to attract the attention of a worldwide buying bench at Keeneland's marquee breeding stock sale.
