Saturday Insights: Pricey City Of Light Colt Gets Going at Keeneland

Solevo at OBS last spring | ThoroStride/Matt Goins


6th-KEE, $100k, Msw, 3yo, 6 1/2f, post time: 3:40 p.m. ET
SOLEVO (City of Light) is the second foal to the races out of the stakes-placed Pleasant Mine (Mineshaft), who was acquired by Windylea Farm New York for $200,000 with this foal in utero at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. The Kentucky-bred dark bay colt made a solid return on that investment when hammering for $170,000 at the 2021 Fasig-Tipton July Sale and fetched $685,000 from trainer Cherie DeVaux at last year's OBS April Sale after breezing a furlong in :10 1/5. The colt's third dam produced GI Carter H. hero Swagger Jack (Smart Strike). Moreau (Speightstown) is a maternal grandson of Danehill (Danzig)'s MGSW full-sister Harpia, whose daughter Unreachable (Giant's Causeway) is responsible for this year's G1 February S. winner Lemon Pop (Lemon Drop Kid) and Equivoque (Good Magic), a good-looking debut winner at this track Apr. 8.
