Perfect Happiness Brings $200K at Keeneland's October Digital Sale


Perfect Happiness | Coady

Three-year-old filly Perfect Happiness (Majesticperfection–Divine Happiness, by Divine Park), a blowout allowance winner with an 86 Beyer Speed Figure at Ellis Aug. 2, brought $200,000 from Flurry Racing Stables as a racing or broodmare Prospect at Keeneland's October Digital Sale Thursday.

The Brereton C. Jones homebred, a runaway maiden winner at Oaklawn in January, finished second for trainer Larry Jones in her two most recent trips to the post in optional claimers at Churchill Downs. She previously RNA'd for $22,000 as a Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall yearling. Consigned by Jones's Airdrie Stud as hip 5007, the bay is out of a half-sister to MSW and stakes producer Spring Rush (Wild Rush).

Buyer Staton Flurry has had previous success purchasing horses of racing age at Keeneland–he paid $280,000 for recent GI Kentucky Oaks heroine Shedaresthedevil (Daredevil) at last year's Keeneland November sale. Perfect Happiness will join the Brad Cox barn already occupied by Sunday's GI Juddmonte Spinster S. entrant Shedaresthedevil.

The digital sale's top yearling was a $10,000 Klimt colt (hip 1350) consigned by Hunter Valley Farm, Agent XIV and purchased by Dale Desruisseaux.

Seven total sellers grossed $243,000, while another 53 offerings failed to meet their reserves.
