An Ontario-bred weanling sold for $500,000 Tuesday at the Fasig-Tipton November sale.
Foaled in Ontario at Anderson Farms, the chestnut filly was purchased by Shadwell Racing.
She was sired by Munnings, who has sired black type winners. Summer in Saratoga was the dam.
"She's the first foal out of a good race mare that I bought a couple of years ago," said David Anderson, owner of Anderson Farms. "We elected to breed her to Munnies, who is a very hot sire at the moment -- a lot of his offspring are running very well, especially the fillies. She was unique, having, certainly, his body type, but had a lot of legs and a lot of stretch, which I think really separated her from the rest of the weanlings."
Heading to Shadwell Racing, Anderson believes his Munnings filly will be in good hands.
"Shadwell farm is one of the top owners in the world, he said. "It's truly an honour, as an Ontario breeder, to have them come knocking on your door and want to buy some of your offspring. They use the best trainers, the best care, and this filly will have the best chance to go on to be a great racing filly for them."
As part of the sale, Anderson was part of an ownership group that sold Ontario-bred, and former Queen's Plate winner, Moira for $3 million.
