From the Keeneland Media Team:
Keeneland has announced that Grade 1 winner Paris Lights, a 4-year-old daughter of Curlin who descends from the influential broodmare Blush With Pride, has been supplemented to Book 1 of the 78th November Breeding Stock Sale, to be held Nov. 10-19. Consigned by ELiTE, agent, the daughter of the Bernardini mare Paris Bikini is cataloged as a racing or broodmare prospect.
Keeneland will accept supplements to Book 1 until the November Sale begins.
Bred by WinStar Farm and campaigned by WinStar Stablemates Racing, Paris Lights demonstrated her versatility during a four-race win streak that included the 2020 Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) over 1 1/8 miles at Saratoga and this year’s Distaff (G3) over 7 furlongs at Aqueduct. Paris Lights, who was trained by Hall of Famer Bill Mott, scored the first two victories of her career at Churchill Downs before winning the prestigious Saratoga stakes.
“Paris Lights is the whole package,” WinStar Farm President and CEO Elliott Walden said. “She has a Grace 1 race record combined with a world-class pedigree. We are excited to offer her at Keeneland as one of the most exciting broodmare prospects in the catalog.”
“Paris Lights represents a rare opportunity to purchase a Grade 1-winning daughter of Curlin at public auction,” ELiTE Founder and Managing Partner Brad Weisbord said. “As a descendant of Blush With Pride, she has a deep and active family that includes Broodmare of the Year Better Than Honour. Her win in the CCA Oaks and her stellar pedigree makes her a highly desirable addition to the November Sale.”
“Keeneland is thrilled to have the opportunity to offer Paris Lights in the November Sale,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Tony Lacy said. “Her outstanding breeding combined with race track excellence make her a valuable addition to Book 1.”
Book 1 starts at 1 p.m. ET on Nov. 10.
