Miki Strikes For Pink Sands at Keeneland


Pink Sands  | Keeneland

Pink Sands (Tapit–Her Smile, by Include), a two-time graded winner for Gainesway Stable and Andrew Rosen and offered in foal to Into Mischief, took the lead late on the opening day of the Keeneland November Sale, realizing a final bid of $2.3 million from Japan's Masahiro Miki. Consigned by Gainesway as agent, the 6-year-old daughter of GI Prioress S. victress Her Smile (Include) was brought along patiently by Shug McGaughey and registered her first stakes victory in the 2019 Lady's Secret S. at Monmouth Park. Winner of the GIII Rampart S. at Gulfstream in December 2019, Pink Sands added the GII Inside Information S. just after the turn of the calendar. Miki was active at Fasig-Tipton Tuesday night, purchasing both Brave Anna (War Front) and Aunt Pearl (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) for an even $3 million.
