Dam of Dennis’ Moment Added to Fasig-Tipton November Sale

From the Fasig-Tipton Media Team:

Dam of DENNIS’ MOMENT & Foal added to The November Sale

TRANSPLENDID, the dam of leading two-year-colt DENNIS’ MOMENT, and her weanling filly by INTO MISCHIEF, have been supplemented to the Fasig-Tipton November Sale.  They will be consigned by Ballysax Bloodstock, agent for Grantley Acres.

A nine-year-old daughter of ELUSIVE QUALITY, TRANSPLENDID’s current two-year-old DENNIS’ MOMENT is one of the top colts of his generation.  He quickly made a name for himself this summer, breaking his maiden by a remarkable 19 ¼ lengths at Ellis Park on July 27.  He followed up that performance with another facile victory in the Iroquois S. (G3) at Churchill Downs on September 14.  Most recently, he went off as the odds on favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1), but was compromised by a terrible stumble leaving the gate.

TRANSPLENDID, who is catalogued as hip 221, will be offered in foal to MORE THAN READY.  UNI’s win in yesterday’s Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) was the seventh Breeders’ Cup victory by a son or daughter MORE THAN READY – making him the #1 ranked sire all time by Breeders’ Cup wins.

TRANSPLENDID will be preceded in the ring by her weanling filly (Hip 220) by INTO MISCHIEF, sire of yesterday’s Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (G1) winner COVFEFE.  INTO MISCHIEF is currently North America’s top ranked sire.

“Transplendid and her 2019 Into Mischief filly are strong late additions to the catalogue,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “Dennis’ Moment has already stamped himself a special horse, and as of this morning, is the co-second favorite in Kentucky Derby future wagering pools – which demonstrates what high regard the public holds him in despite his poor racing luck in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.  There is substantial upside with this mare and foal package.”

These entries may now be viewed online and will also be available via the equineline catalogue app.  Print versions will be available on site at Fasig-Tipton.

The Fasig-Tipton November Sale will be held on Tuesday, November 5, in Lexington, Kentucky. The sale will begin at 3 pm.

The horse broke well today,” Gaffalione said. “I had the horse inside, Dunph, going to the lead and then (Gun It) showed a little bit of speed. When I saw they were intent on going I just tried to get him back and got him to relax. He came back to me nicely and settled well down the backside. Got a little keen going into the far turn and wanted to move a little early. But I didn’t want to take too much away from him so I tried to sit as long as I could. He was waiting on horses down the lane but I kept him at task and there was plenty of horse there.”

“Mark (Casse, the trainer) and his team have done a great job,” Gaffalione said. “They’ve had a ton of confidence in this horse the whole way. It’s just an honor to be able to ride the horse. He’s just so professional, trains great and he’s a pleasure to be around.”
