Vequist winning the Spinaway | Sarah Andrew

The second Eclipse winner to be offered in the space of eight hips, Vequist (Nyquist–Vero Amore, by Mineshaft) fetched a final bid of $3.4 million from Spendthrift Farm as the Fasig-Tipton November Sale marched towards its conclusion. Consigned by Bluewater Sales, agent, as hip 253, the dark bay filly shipped up to Saratoga off a narrow debut second at Parx and romped to a 9 1/2-length victory in last year's GI Spinaway S. at Saratoga. Beaten by Dayoutoftheoffice in the GI Frizette S., Vequist turned the tables on the biggest stage, taking the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies by two lengths.
