Puca, Dam of Kentucky Derby Mage, Sold Post-RNA to Stewart

Puca | Keeneland

Puca (Big Brown), the dam of GI Kentucky Derby winner Mage (Good Magic), was originally reported as unsold at $2.8 million, but Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin told members of the press in the post-session debrief that John Stewart, who made a giant splash at Fasig-Tipton Tuesday evening, had acquired the 11-year-old mare for $2.9 million post-RNA. Arvin told the press that the sale would not be included in the Book 1 statistics. Consigned by Case Clay Thoroughbred Management and offered carrying a full-sibling to Mage, former 'TDN Rising Star' Puca has an unblemished record as a stakes producer, as her first foal Gunning (Gun Runner) was twice-placed in black-type company, whle the mare's current colt Dornoch (Good Magic), was second in the Sapling S. and recently broke his maiden in emphatic style at Keeneland this fall. Robert Clay's Grandview Equine acquired Puca with the filly that would become Gunning in utero for $475,000 at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton November Sale.
