Munnings Fillies On Top at Fasig-Tipton New York
published by: COOLMORE 8/15/23
"It was a huge Fasig-Tipton New York-Bred Yearlings Sale for Munnings this week as the only stallion to have two yearlings in the top five spots on the leaderboard.
The stallion’s most expensive was the most expensive filly of the sale when Preferred Equine snapped her up for $340,000 from Denali Stud. The Old Tavern Farm-bred filly is out of the Malibu Moon mare To The Moon Alice, who is a half-sister to Grade II Mother Goose winner Unchained Melody."
“She was a standout individual in the sale,” said Wesley Ward, who signed on behalf of Preferred Equine. “She made Ben McElroy's short list, so I came over to look at her. She is the sale topper so far for fillies, so there were a lot of people interested in her. Ben is a great judge of a horse and we were happy he tipped us off and we got her. She looked like the best filly that we saw in the sale.”
To The Moon Alice is the dam of one winner from two to race and is a half-sister to the dam of the stakes placed J C’s a Legend and out of Grade III winner Love Match.
