Into Mischief Filly, Uncle Mo Colt Energize Opening Session at Keeneland

Hip 92 | Keeneland 

The opening session of the Keeneland September Sale picked up considerable steam at its midway stage when a filly by Into Mischief and a colt by Uncle Mo made seven-figure prices back-to-back. The Gainesway-consigned hip 92 is a daughter of Grade III winner Delightful Joy (Tapit), a $700,000 purchase by International Equities Holding at Keeneland January in 2017 and also the dam of Window Shopping (American Pharoah), winner of this year's GIII Summertime Oaks for Perry and Ramona Bass and Richard Mandella. Hip 92 was hammered down to Sheikha Hissa's Shadwell Racing for $2.3 million. Next in the ring was hip 94, an Uncle Mo colt out of Diva Delite (Repent) consigned by Hunter Valley Farm. The colt is not only a half-brother to champion and multi-millionairess Midnight Bisou (Midnight Lute), but also of the MGISP Verifying (Justify). That $775,000 KEESEP grad also won this year's GIII Indiana Derby. When the dust settled, the partnership of West Point Thoroughbreds, Woodford Thoroughbreds and Chuck Sonson were the successful bidders on hip 94 at $1.35 million. David Ingordo acted as agent.
