Nereid, winner of the 2011 American Oaks (G1), sold for $1.3 million to Baumann Stables early in Monday’s opening session of Keeneland’s January Horses of All Ages Sale.
Consigned as a broodmare prospect by Don Robinson’s Winter Quarter Farm, Nereid is a five-year-old mare by Rock Hard Ten out of the Belong to Me mare Dowry. In addition to her win in the American Oaks, Nereid finished second in the Rodeo Drive (G1) and third in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1) and Del Mar Oaks (G1).
Prior to Nereid’s sale, the graded stakes-placed Maristar brought a final bid of $500,000 from Three Chimneys Farm. A six-year-old daughter of Giant’s Causeway, Maristar is out of champion Jewel Princess, and is a half-sister to stakes winner One Nice Cat. She was consigned by Gerard Butler Racing.
