Alex G. Campbell Jr.'s BERNADETTE THE JET (American Pharoah) dropped the hammer for $425,000 as a yearling at the 2018 Keeneland September Sale. The chestnut has been training steadily at Fair Hill under the tutelage of classic winning conditioner Graham Motion. Bernadette the Jet, a half-sister to GI Preakness S. third place finisher Social Inclusion (Pioneerof the Nile), RNA'd for $485,000 at this year's Fasig-Tipton March sale after breezing an eighth in :10.2.
