Flatter had a profitable day at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale when his grade I-winning daughter Paola Queen fetched $1.7 million and was the fourth highest-priced horse sold during the second session on Nov. 9.
Offered as Hip 274 by Brookdale Sales, agent, the 3-year-old filly was bought by SF Bloodstock. Paola Queen scored her big win in the Aug. 6 Test Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga Race Course and also finished second in the Gulfstream Park Oaks (gr. II) this year for Grupo Seven C Stable and trainer Gustavo Delgado.
Bred in Kentucky by CFP Thoroughbreds, Paola Queen was bought for $180,000 from the Hermitage Farm consignment at the 2014 Keeneland September yearling sale.
Paola Queen was produced from the multiple stakes-winning and grade III-placed Kafwain mare Kadira, a half sister to stakes winner and group II-placed Our Channel, both of whom were produced from grade II winner Raw Gold.
Paola Queen is one of 5 graded stakes winners in 2016 for her sire Flatter, who will stand for $35,000 in 2017.
