20 F American Pharaoh X Letgomyecho

$1.4Million American Pharoah Filly Tops Keeneland September Day 1

The 2021 Keeneland September Yearling Sale is underway in Kentucky and setting the pace during the first session was a filly by American Pharoah from Letgomyecho that sold for $US1.4million ($A1.9million).

Consigned by Betz Thoroughbreds, the star filly was bought by Northshore Bloodstock.

She is a half-sister to recent Group I Spinaway Stakes winner Echo Zulu as well as Group I winner Echo Town and Group III winner J Boys Echo being from good producing Group II winner Letgomyecho, who has left eight winners.

Alan Quartucci of Northshore purchased the filly for owner Joe Allen and said she most likely will go to trainer Shug McGaughey.

“She looks like a real runner,” Quartucci said. “She has a fantastic pedigree that’s still going forward every day. The filly who won in Saratoga (Echo Zulu) was amazing. (The yearling) was the whole package.”

American Pharoah is currently in Australia for Coolmore standing at a fee of $49,500.
