September Sale graduate Global Campaign earns Seller Bonus for Peter Pan victory

Keeneland sales alumni finished 1-2 in three graded stakes – the Man o’ War (G1), Peter Pan (G3) and Beaugay (G3) – on Saturday at Belmont.

Only a neck separated September Yearling Sale alumni Channel Maker and Arklow in the Man o’ War. 

With his victory in the Peter Pan, 2017 September Sale graduate Global Campaign earned a $5,000 September Sale Seller Bonus for WinStar Farm, the colt’s owner at the time of sale. September Sale alumnus Sir Winston ran second.

The Keeneland September Sale Seller Bonus Program, initiated by Keeneland in 2017, offers cash rewards to sellers (owners at the time of sale) of horses sold at the September Sale that win Grade/Group 1, 2 or 3 stakes as a 2- or 3-year-old. Sellers receive cash rewards based on the following criteria: $10,000 Seller Bonus for your first Grade/Group 1 stakes win; $7,500 for your first Grade/Group 2 win; and $5,000 for your first Grade/Group 3 victory. 

Homerique, offered at the November Breeding Stock Sale, won the Beaugay in her North American debut. Finishing second was September Sale graduate Competitionofideas

At Santa Anita, September Sale graduate Causeforcommotion was a 9-length winner of the Santa Barbara (G3).
