Keeneland Book Three Produces $500,000 American Pharoah Colt

The Keeneland September Yearling Sale might have moved into Book Three, but there are still plenty of nice horses to be had including a powerful American Pharoah colt that sold for $500,000 to be the third highest priced horse sold in the seventh session of this marathon sale.

Consigned by Mt Brilliant Farm, he was bought by Ben Glass as agent for Gary and Mary West and is from AP Indy mare You Make Lovin Fun, a half-sister to Grade II winner Classic Elegance and to the dam of Grade I Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can.

“We like American Pharoah,” Glass said. “We actually just had an American Pharoah born in Australia yesterday, a half-brother to Fighting Mad. We like the family and we like the colt. He looks like he’ll take a lot of training--he looks like a tough son of a gun.”
