Pioneerof the Nile Filly Sells for $825,000

Reprinted from Bloodhorse

A Four Star Sales-consigned filly by Pioneerof the Nile brought $825,000 from Mick Ruis’ Ruis Racing during the mid-point of the Sept. 13 second session of Book 2 of the Keeneland September yearling sale.

The striking filly was bred by Three Chimneys Farm and is out of the stakes-winning, grade 1-placed R Gypsy Gold. The mare was purchased for $625,000 from the dispersal of E. Paul Robsham Stables at the 2013 Keeneland November sale. Her 2015 yearling by Medaglia d’Oro sold to agent Steven Young at last year’s September sale for $775,000.

The filly’s second dam, Broadway Gold, is a half sister to grade 1 winner and sire Dialed In.

The price is the highest for a filly so far in the session, far in advance of a Scat Daddy filly at $650,000 earlier in the session.
