Midnight Bisou Hammers for $5M at FTKNOV As Co-Owner Allen Buys Out Other Partners

Midnight Bisou | Fasig-Tipton

Superstar and champion Midnight Bisou (Midnight Lute–Diva Delite, by Repent) was a predictably popular item at the Fasig-Tipton November 'Night of the Stars' Sunday, but in the end she'll go to a familiar face, as Chuck Allen, partner on the mare during her racing career, bought out the other partners and brought the hammer down at $5 million. The 5-year-old sold as hip 185, consigned by ELiTE Sales. A five-time graded stakes winner and dual Grade I winner as a sophomore, the $80,000 OBS April buy earned a runaway divisional championship at four with a remarkable seven graded stakes tallies and four top-level successes. She added the GII Fleur de Lis S. and was runner-up in the $20-million Saudi Cup this term before being retired while prepping for the Breeders' Cup. She had 13 wins, all in graded stakes, from 22 outings, never finished out of the money and is the highest-earning U.S. dirt mare in history with $7,516,520 in the bank.
