A 'Smooth' Start To Keeneland November


Satin and Silk is a half-sister to 'TDN Rising Star' Materiality | Horsephotos

The Eaton Sales-consigned Satin and Silk (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}–Wildwood Flower, by Langfuhr) got the opening session of the Keeneland November Sale off to a quick start, hammering to Claiborne Farm for $1.4 million in the first half-hour of bidding. Cataloged as hip 13, Satin and Silk was bred by John Gunther and was purchased by M. V. Magnier for 900,000gns ($1,237,289) at the 2018 Tattersalls October Book 1 Sale. A daughter of SW & GSP Wildwood Flower, Satin and Silk is a half-sister to 'TDN Rising Star' and GI Florida Derby hero Materiality (Afleet Alex) as well as GSW & MGISP My Miss Sophia (Unbridled's Song), whose son Annapolis (War Front) was named a 'Rising Star' on Saratoga debut this summer before adding the GII Pilgrim S. Annapolis would have been one of the favorites for the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, but was forced to scratch before the race with an ankle chip. Satin and Silk was offered in foal to the Gunther-bred Triple Crown winner Justify.
