LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A filly from Triple Crown winner American Pharoah has set a new record during the Keeneland September Sale.
Keeneland announced the yearling was sold for $8.2 million Wednesday. Mandy Pope's Whisper Hill Farm made the record bid.
Clarkland Farm in Lexington consigned the filly. Her dam is stakes-winning mare Leslie's Lady.
The bid is the highest at the September Sale since John Ferguson bid $11.7 million to acquire Kingmambo colt Meydan City in 2006.
