Gamine Sells for $7 Million

Gamine sells for $7 Million

Champion sprinter Gamine, now in foal to Quality Road, topped the Fasig-Tipton November Breeding Stock Auction, selling for a cool $7 million to Coolmore’s M.V. Magnier. Gamine won nine races of her eleven career starts, including the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint and the 2020 Acorn, earning more than $1.7 million.

Technically, Gamine never finished off the board. She was third in the 2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint and third in the 2020 Kentucky Oaks, however, she was disqualified from the Oaks after testing positive for betamethasone. Although she had been administered the drug under the care of a veterinarian 18 days before the race (Betamethasone is a permitted medication in Kentucky but at least a 14-day withdrawal time is mandated). Any level of detection on race day is a violation.

Gamine sold to Coolmore’s M.V. Magnier for a staggering $7 million. Unbelievable how fast the auctioneer speaks.

One of her most impressive races came in the 2020 Acorn Stakes where she won by 18 3/4 lengths in 1:32.55, fastest in the 90-year history of the race and just off the track record.

  1. Wow. I had no idea she did this. This is one classy mare, look at her in the auction ring. She just SHOUTS class. Look at her expression in the ring. WOw.

  2. Oh my gosh, yes. She’s beautiful. Just the right blend of femininity, refinement and toughness. Wow. I need to look at her in a conformation shot, but whew…I’m looking in my mind at half a dozen stallions. Tapit? Frontline? Woof.
