Hip 258 | Keeneland

A colt by international super-sire War Front out of GI Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can (Proud Citizen) lit up the board on day two at Keeneland September Tuesday when hammering for a thus-far sale-topping $2.9 million to Godolphin as Sheikh Mohammed continued his raid on the marquee sale. Consigned by breeder Brereton C. Jones and Airdrie Stud Inc., Agent, the dark bay colt is a half to SW/GSP Believe In Royalty (Tapit) out of a dam who took the Oaks in 2012. Catalogued as Hip 258, he is Believe You Can’s third foal, following the aforementioned Believe in Royalty, a $900,000 buy at this sale in 2016, and Birdy Num (Tapit), who went for $1 million here two Septembers ago.
