Finally getting a chance to watch Stellar Wind. What a lovely mare she is, she's very elegant... except her funny eyes. She was very well-behaved considering they didn't have her in a lip chain. Very excited to see an AP foal from her!

That's absurd, if the live money was anywhere near the $3.1 mil RNA.

$1,650,000.
ETA: She sold to Dr. Masatake Iida. Anyone familiar with who this is?
Dr. Masatake Iida is an owner-breeder in Japan.

He purchased Lady Joanne(USA) before.
He has some broodmares in the US to be bred to US stallions and now races 2yo filly Dream It Is(USA)(by Shackleford) in the US, too.

She is a nice mare. Looks exactly like More Than Ready. I think Dr. Iida got a good one.

Hip 2814, Airoforce, a G2W Colonel John colt, goes to Jeff Jeans of Texas for $12k. He could run again if he clears the vet's list. If not, he'll stand in a regional market such as Indiana or Louisiana. #KeeNov

He's a really nice looking horse (trying not to be swayed by his dapples), I'm surprised he sold that low.

I watched some of the last part of Session 8 and was surprised that so many of these stallions and geldings sold for so little. I also was interested in what Ocean Knight would bring and am glad he was an OUT.

Morse Code is a 4 year old colt who comes from an excellent family. He's only had six starts and was in the money three times. He went for a claimer's price.

Joe Nevills‏ @DRFNevills
Hip 2861 Morse Code, a winning Tapit colt, half to Honor Code, Noble Tune, Lady Serena & Declarationofpeace, goes to David Meah as agent for a partnership for $32k. He'll go to the California barn of Richard Baltas and they'll try to boost his stallion credentials. #KeeNov

Wildcat Red is a MGSW Horse that they shipped to Meydan in 2017, which seemed to wipe out his year. I know he's tailed off but he earned over $1mil in his career.

Joe Nevills‏ @DRFNevills
Hip 2810, Wildcat Red, a G2W D'Wildcat horse, goes to @buck_pond_farm for $45k. Could run again, but long-term plan is to stand him at stud. #KeeNov

Airoforce is by Colonel John out of a Cuvee mare, but has a pretty solid female family. Horse was good at 2 and Highly regarded early on at 3, but He's a turf horse with more of a dirt pedigree. Dad was exported to Korea, so that doesn't really help.... but $12,000!?!?

I love Long On Value. He looks awesome.

Homage, a half-brother to Congrats and Flatter by War Front was just $9k. Maybe being the last horse of the sale hurt his price.
