KEENELAND NOVEMBER BREEDING STOCK SALE
6 - 16 November 2012

Propelled by a $350,000 racing prospect by Tapit who sold as the last horse of the day, the sixth session (Sunday 11 November) of the Keeneland November Sale realized significant gains from a year ago. In all, 265 head sold for $10,740,300, good for an average of $40,529 that was up 24.1%. The median of $32,000 saw a similar gain, up 28% from 2011’s corresponding session. The RNA rate was 22.1%.

Topping the session was the Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales-consigned Moro Tap (Tapit), who book-ended Sunday’s trading as hip 2053. The 2-year-old gray or roan colt, who finished second in his debut at Calder a month ago, touched off a bidding duel between trainer Mike Maker, representing Sky Chai Racing and Terry Raymond, and bloodstock agent Ben McElroy, with the former team coming out on top. The final price on the colt was a full $100,000 more than last year’s $250,000 session topper.

Moro Tap was being sold on behalf of Joe Appelbaum and Carlos Morales’ Off the Hook operation and partner Grupo 7 C.

“We liked everything about him,” Maker, who did his bidding out back while Raymond stood alongside, said of Moro Tap. “We are obviously a big fan of Tapits, and he’s a 2-year-old going into this 3-year-old season.”

Maker trained one of Tapit’s biggest stars to date, last year’s champion juvenile Hansen. Sky Chai co-owned Hansen with the horse’s breeder, Dr. Kendall Hansen.
