Just Jules sells as a yearling | Keeneland Photo


4th-BAQ, $90K, Msw, 2yo, f, 1 1/16mT, 2:12 p.m.

The expectations for JUST JULES (Justify) are high given her $1.05m price tag as a yearling at Keeneland September last year. Purchased out of a partnership by her breeder, the filly is a half to GSW Ballet Dancing (Medaglia d'Oro) and MGSP Untreated (Nyquist). This is also the family of champion 2-year-old filly Halfbridled (Unbridled). Just Jules is drawn inside for trainer Bill Mott.

A homebred for Peter Brant, Belle Gambe (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) is out of Unaided (GB) (Dansili {GB}), who Brant picked up for a near-sale topping 1,250,000 € out of Arqana's 2019 December Breeding Stock Sale. The mare has already produced North America's champion turf female in Uni (GB)(More Than Ready) and is from the family of G1SW and sire Invincible Spirit (Ire) (Green Desert) along with fellow sire Kodiac (GB) (Danehill). Chad Brown trains while Irad Ortiz, Jr. picks up the mount. TJCIS PPS
