Harrisburg, PA---High-priced broodmares were the headliners of the first day of the mixed portion of the Standardbred Horse Sale, held Friday (Nov. 7). 

Selling for $200,000 was 3-year-old filly Royalty Forever, the full sister to 2013 Hambletonian winner Royalty For Life.
  
In foal to Muscle Hill, the #1375 sales slip was signed by Robert Lindstrom of Sweden. She was sold by the same partnership group that owns Royalty For Life. 

“She was very marketable; a beautiful filly in foal to the right stallion and everything seemed to fit,” said former co-owner, Paul Fontaine. “It was time to move her, given the fact that the stallion is just going in to stud service and the stallion line has been very hot. Yearlings are selling well.

We had her in foal to Muscle Hill and all the stars were aligned to sell her. She’s absolutely beautiful, which is much of the reason she sold so well; stunning, stunning looking filly.” 

Also selling with a $200,000 price tag was hip #1417, Fancy Filly, a daughter of Western Hanover carrying her second foal, by Somebeachsomewhere. The Dan Patch and O’Brien champion 2-year-old pacing filly champion is the sibling of eight winners out of her dam Fanciful Hanover, all of them in 1:55 or better. She’s headed to White Birch Farm in Allentown, N.J.

The day’s offerings were a mixed bag of stallion shares, broodmares, weanlings and some yearlings. They collectively sold for $5,632,000. The day’s results can be found here.

Selling resumes Saturday morning at 10 a.m. with racehorses.
