Frankel weanling makes $800,000 at Keeneland November Sale

The Frankel filly, out of the dam of Gr.1-performers Nay Lady Nay and Arizona, was the highest-priced weanling to sell in North America so far this year.

Taken from the Thoroughbred Daily News, 11th November 2021:

Matt Dorman purchased the Four Star Sales-consigned  filly (Lot 144) for $800,000 under the name of his D Hatman Thoroughbreds racing division but stated that his long-term goal will be for the filly to join his Determined Stud broodmare band.

He said: "We have horses that run, so she will be in the racing program and, hopefully, improve her page and go from there. She's long-term for us." He continued: "Obviously, it's Frankel and it's a great page, a great family, and she has great conformation. She checked all the boxes."

Four Star Sales' John Greathouse said the team was pleased with Wednesday's result. Of the filly, he commented: "We got her in midsummer and she was always
a really nice horse. We were proud of how she did, how she shipped in. And she really acted nice down there and everybody seemed to like her."
