American Pharoah filly turns good profit for Powerstown in Newmarket

The filly was purchased by Tom Whitehead of Powerstown Stud through Chad Schumer for just $30,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October Sale.

She was one of two juveniles by the Triple Crown-winning American Pharoah catalogued to the Tattersalls Craven Sale, yet was the only one to sell when eliciting a bid of 110,000gns from Victoria de Sousa.

The filly is the first foal out of the ultra tough Iplaytricks, a multiple stakes scorer and a ten-time winner overall.

The next sale on the European breeze-up circuit, the Goffs UK Sale, takes place in Doncaster next week. Schumer Bloodstock will be also be represented at the OBS April Sale in Florida.
