LEXINGTON, KY (October 8, 2012) – Fans will have the opportunity to meet 2011 Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Plum Pretty on Sunday, October 14, when she will be paraded in the Paddock before Keeneland’s fifth race.
Owned by John Fort’s Peachtree Stables, the recently retired Plum Pretty is a multiple graded stakes winner who won the Kentucky Oaks in a thrilling stretch duel, besting a stellar field of 13 other fillies. Her other victories include the Apple Blossom (G1) at Oaklawn Park, the Cotillion (G2) at Parx and the Sunland Park Oaks, which she won by 25 lengths. The 4-year-old daughter of Medaglia d’Oro earned more than $1.6 million, with five wins and on-the-board finishes in 10 of 12 starts.
She is cataloged in Keeneland’s upcoming November Breeding Stock Sale and will be consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency as agent.
