September 25, 2017

LEXINGTON, KY (Sept. 25, 2017) – Paola Queen, winner of the 2016 Test (G1) at Saratoga, has been consigned by Elite Sales as a broodmare prospect to the 2017 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

Paola Queen displayed her exceptional racing ability with a powerful win in the Test, rallying from off the pace in deep stretch to defeat a quality field of 3-year-old fillies. She finished in the money in half of her 10 starts, including second in the Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2), while racing at the top of her division. 

“She is a beautiful specimen,” Tom Ryan of SF Bloodstock said. “The Grade 1 Test has always been an indicator of class and brilliance. All combined makes her very special.”

A 4-year-old filly by Flatter, Paola Queen is out of the multiple stakes-winning Kafwain mare Kadira.

“Paola Queen is an exciting broodmare prospect for the November Sale – a beautifully bred Grade 1 stakes winner,” Keeneland Vice President of Racing and Sales Bob Elliston said. 

Keeneland’s November Sale, the most important auction of its kind in the world, runs Nov. 7-18.
