A  Union Rags  colt purchased by agent Ben Glass on behalf of Gary and Mary West for $250,000 was the top-priced horse sold during the Sept. 20 session of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Produced from Town Flirt, a daughter of Speightstown  who earned $160,736, the colt was bred in Kentucky by KatieRich Farms, which consigned him to the Keeneland auction as Hip 3265.

The colt’s second dam, Open Flirt, by A.P. Indy, produced stakes winner and $252,660 earner Financial Modeling, and his third dam With a Wink was a grade 2 winner who produced three stakes winners.

“Ben selected him and loved this horse,” said Des Ryan, who signed the sale receipt on behalf of Glass. “I think we were pretty much stretched (on price).”

“I thought he was a very nice colt, and Union Rags is a popular stallion,” said KatieRich’s Mark Hubley. “He had a tremendous amount of vet work by all the leading agents. If you have the right horse, there is still a lot of money around.”

The colt highlighted a strong session for KatieRich, which had four sell for a total of $414,000.

Another yearling sold Thursday by KatieRich was Hip 3096, a Tale of the Cat  filly produced from Lisa’s Booby Trap purchased by Valorie Lund for $110,000.

Lisa’s Booby Trap was named after trainer Timothy Snyder’s late wife, Lisa, who said before her death she would be reincarnated as a horse. Lisa’s Booby Trap was reportedly bought by Snyder for $4,500, which included his life savings of $2,000. The remainder was to be paid from proceeds of the filly’s first win.

Blind in one eye, Lisa’s Booby Trap overcame that infirmity as well as flat-footedness to win 10 of her 18 starts, including the restricted Loudonville Stakes at Saratoga Race Course, and earned $182,440.

The journey of Lisa’s Booby Trap and her trainer inspired the book “The Ghost Horse: A True Story of Love, Death, and Redemption” by Joe Layden and was the subject of an episode of “Dateline NBC.”

KatieRich purchased Lisa’s Booby Trap privately following trainer Snyder’s death in March 2015.

Tales from the Crib: Instilled Regard: Kentucky Derby.Com 4/29/18

April 30th, 2018|Comments Off on Tales from the Crib: Instilled Regard: Kentucky Derby.Com 4/29/18

By: Kellie Reilly/Brisnet.Com

Kentucky Derby (G1) contender Instilled Regard was bred by KatieRich Farms within its first decade of operation in the Bluegrass, but as a grandson of incoming Hall of Famer Heavenly Prize, his pedigree is old-school.

Larry and Karen Doyle’s nom de course, KatieRich, is a combination of their children’s names. Initially a New York-based racing stable, KatieRich took on new life after the Doyles purchased a Midway, Kentucky, cattle farm in 2007 and converted it into a Thoroughbred nursery. KatieRich has already bred several stakes winners including Faithfully, runner-up to Paradise Woods in the Zenyatta (G1) and third to Stellar Wind in the Clement L. Hirsch (G1), and Comfort, second to Frosted in the 2016 Whitney (G1). And Grade 3-placed turf performer Call Provision, bred in New York, is knocking on the door.

Instilled Regard, however, has brought the breeding operation to another level.

His dam, Enhancing, is a royally bred daughter of Forestry and Heavenly Prize. She was acquired privately, as part of a package from the Phipps Stable, after failing to win in three starts as a juvenile. Enhancing managed to break her maiden at Beulah Park for KatieRich and trainer Mark Hubley, finished fifth in a Mountaineer allowance, and called it a career.

Of course, Enhancing’s real appeal was as a broodmare prospect thanks to her Phipps family. Dam Heavenly Prize, the champion three-year-old filly of 1994, captured eight Grade 1 races over the course of her career. She went on to become an outstanding producer responsible for Good Reward and Pure Prize (both sires). Heavenly Prize is herself a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Oh What a Windfall, and among her other maternal relatives are Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) hero Dancing Spree, Dancing Forever, Finder’s Fee, and Furlough.

Considering how deep the female line goes, it’s not a surprise that Heavenly Prize’s daughters can hand that genetic gold mine down to their foals even if they didn’t show it themselves on the racetrack. Three of her daughters are graded stakes producers. Just Reward is the dam of Phipps homebred Persistently, who famously shocked Rachel Alexandra in the 2010 Personal Ensign (G1). The other two went to KatieRich – Distinctively, dam of the aforementioned Faithfully, and Enhancing.

The decision to breed Enhancing to Instilled Regard’s sire, Arch, was a clever one, and not just because he was a Claiborne stallion and the Phipps clan long-time Claiborne residents. It echoes a pedigree pattern found in Arch’s best son, Blame. The champion who thwarted Zenyatta’s perfect record in the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), Blame is out of a mare by Seeking the Gold, and his second dam (granddam) is by Nijinsky II. Heavenly Prize is herself by Seeking the Gold and out of a Nijinsky II mare.

Instilled Regard was foaled on April 6, 2015, and proved a lovable character from the start.

Instilled Regard in his awkward phase as a youngster

“He was very sweet-natured and easy going. Never any trouble,” recalled Tammy Ingebritson, KatieRich’s farm manager.

“He was so mild-mannered and sweet.”

The only thing the yet-unnamed colt would do, on occasion, was want to break free and run during his sales prep.

“Every now and then, he would decide he’d want to take flight,” Ingebritson said. “When we’d hand walk him in the field, he’d be, ‘I want to take off.’”

In the summer of his yearling year, Instilled Regard still looked babyish and backward. That put him at a disadvantage compared to the show-stoppers in the exclusive Book 1 of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. A later spot in the catalog would have helped him, but his pedigree bumped him up.

“As a yearling at the Keeneland sale, he was still immature and had not grown into himself yet,” Ingebritson said. “His pedigree landed him in Book 1, a tough spot for an immature colt. His neck and body had not stretched out yet.”

When he toured the sales ring, bidding maxed out at $110,000, below the reserve price that KatieRich had set for him. But a private sale was later concluded on the Keeneland grounds.

What a difference six months made. Prepared by consignor Tom McCrocklin, agent, for the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s March Sale, the dark bay colt turned heads with a blistering quarter-mile work in :20.80 at the under tack show. The time was fast, but his manner of going was particularly impressive.

Now the son of Arch and Enhancing had become a hot property. In a complete turnaround from Keeneland September, a bidding war erupted and did not cease until Larry Best’s OXO Equine prevailed over Mike Ryan – at $1.05 million.

“Hell of a horse,” Ryan said in the Thoroughbred Daily News recap. “He makes the hair stand up on the back of your head.”

To put that quotation in context, Ryan is the bloodstock agent who bought Derby rival Good Magic and 2016 Derby victor Nyquist, and co-bred 2017 Derby winner Always Dreaming.

Ingebritson summed up how far Instilled Regard has come:

“A plain brown wrapper and a bit of an ugly duckling who has clearly turned into a swan.”

Pedigree Insights: Instilled Regard: TDN 1/15/18

When a two-year-old son of Arch sold for $1,050,000 in Florida last March, the successful bidder, Lawrence Best of OXO Equine, commented that the youngster was “a very good-looking horse” and a hard, hard runner, while Mike Ryan, the underbidder, was sufficiently impressed to describe the colt as a “hell of a horse,” before adding that “he makes the hair stand up on the back of your head.”

That’s quite a compliment from a man of Ryan’s vast experience and it is beginning to look as though his instincts were right. The Arch colt–Instilled Regard–now boasts a record of 5-2-2-1 and this progressive performer was impressive in winning the GIII Lecomte S.

The Lecomte may only be a Grade III, but its past winners include several which have gone on to better things, including Oxbow (2013 GI Preakness S.), Ron The Greek (three Grade I successes, including the Santa Anita H. and Jockey Club Gold Cup) and Hard Spun (2007 GI King’s Bishop S., after finishing second in the GI Kentucky Derby and third in the Preakness).

The surprising aspect of Instilled Regard’s story is that this very well-connected colt had RNA’d at only $110,000 just six months before he sold for roughly ten times that amount. His pedigree is solid and carries the Claiborne hallmark, even though he was bred by KatieRich Farms. His sire Arch spent his stallion career at Claiborne, as did Seeking The Gold, Nijinsky and Riva Ridge, the stallions responsible for Instilled Regard’s second, third and fourth dams, all of whom were bred by Ogden Phipps.


Instilled Regard is a member of the penultimate crop by Arch, who died in January 2016 at the age of 21. Arch’s overall record as a stallion can be gauged from the way his fee fell and then recovered very well. Having been forced into retirement by problems with an ankle, the son of Kris S. started his career at a fee of $20,000 in 1999. By his fourth and fifth seasons his fee was down to $15,000 but by 2004 and 2005 he was available for $5,000 and $7,500, respectively.

The straight-talking Seth Hancock commented in 2003 that “Arch is not doing what we hoped he might do, but you can’t say he’s that big a disappointment because no son of Kris S. made it. I thought with his female family he would overcome that, but so far he hasn’t and it doesn’t look like he will.”

Anyone could have been forgiven for thinking that Arch’s days at Claiborne were numbered but he pulled off a remarkable recovery, to the extent that his fee began to rally and his last three years were spent at a fee of $40,000.

It turned out that a bit of patience was required with some of Arch’s best winners (which wasn’t too surprising in view of Arch’s own record, which included just one start as a 2-year-old). For example, his first crop contained Les Arcs, a gelding who won the G1 Golden Jubilee and G1 July Cup as a six-year-old in 2006. His second crop was led by Prince Arch, winner of the GI Gulfstream Park Breeders’ Cup H. as a four-year-old in 2005 and more recently we have seen Grade I victories for the six-year-olds Hymn Book (Donn H. in 2012) and Grand Arch (Shadwell Turf Mile in 2015).

However, his fourth crop contained a pair of fillies who shone as 3-year-olds, with Pine Island taking the GI Alabama S. and Arravale the GI Del Mar Oaks and the GI E.P. Taylor S. Pine Island and Arravale both scored over a mile and a quarter, as had Arch when he gained his biggest success, in the GI Super Derby.


With Roberto and Danzig as his grandsires, Arch was very capable of siring smart turf performers, but Instilled Regard is the latest in a lengthy line of good dirt runners, headed by Blame, 2010’s champion older male whose victories included that stunning defeat of Zenyatta in the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic. The list also features such as It Tiz Well (last year’s GI Cotillion S.) and Archarcharch (GI Arkansas Derby). His total of Graded/Group winners now stands at 36, which is pretty good going considering that most of his early crops numbered fewer than 50 named foals. It is worth adding that Blame and Hymn Book are members of his 7,500-dollar 2006 crop.

Naturally for a stallion based at Claiborne, Arch was mated to a lot of mares sired by Mr Prospector or his sons, with daughters of Seeking The Gold being by far the most popular option. There are now 80 foals of racing age bred this way and among them are Blame and his fellow Grade I winner Pine Island, as well as the GIII Iowa Derby winner Bent On Bourbon and the Listed winner Albasharah. These four stakes winners represent only an unexceptional 5% of the sample, but now we have Instilled Regard with a second dam by Seeking The Gold.

Needless to say, this second dam by Seeking The Gold isn’t any old daughter of the 1988 Dwyer S. and Super Derby winner. She is Heavenly Prize, an eight-times Grade I winner at the ages of two, three and four who was 1994’s champion 3-year-old filly.

This is truly a blue-blooded pedigree. Instilled Regard’s fifth dam is Lady Pitt, America’s champion 3-year-old filly of 1966. Lady Pitt had the type of record it’s hard to imagine nowadays, as she notched up 14 starts as a juvenile and another 16 at three, when her wins included the Mother Goose S. and the CCA Oaks. She raced 47 times in all.

Although Lady Pitt’s sons included The Liberal Member, winner of the GI Brooklyn H., it was largely her daughters who ensured that her name lives on. Three of them produced graded stakes winners, including her Buckpasser fillies Bank Of England (dam of the Reviewer colt Comptroller) and Queen Pot (dam of the smart European miler King of Clubs).

However, it was Lady Pitt’s Riva Ridge filly Blitey–the fourth dam of Instilled Regard–who made the biggest impact. Herself a winner of the GII Maskette H. and GII Test S., Blitey produced Grade I winners to three different stallions–Nijinsky, Easy Goer and Mr Prospector. Her Nijinsky colt Dancing Spree was fast enough to win the GI Carter H. and GI Breeders’ Cup Sprint, in addition to the GI Suburban H. over a mile and a quarter, while his sister Dancing All Night took the GII Long Island H. over a mile and a half. Instilled Regard’s third dam, Oh What A Dance, was an unraced sister to Dancing Spree and Dancing All Night.


Oh What a Dance also enjoyed Grade I success as a broodmare with Heavenly Prize’s sister Oh What A Windfall, who took the Matron S. Another sister to Heavenly Prize, the Grade I-placed Dancinginmydreams, produced Dancing Forever, a Rahy colt who landed the Grade I Woodford Reserve Manhattan H.

Heavenly Prize also did sterling work, notably with two sons sired by Storm Cat. One of them, Good Reward, won the Grade I Hollywood Derby and GI Manhattan H., while the other, Pure Prize, landed the GII Kentucky Cup Classic H. Without a Grade I win to his name, Pure Prize started out at a fee of $7,500 but succeeded in siring Grade I winners in both North and South America.

Instilled Regard’s dam Enhancing is a daughter of Forestry, which makes her a three-parts-sister to Pure Prize and Good Reward. Another daughter of Forestry has already produced a Kentucky Derby winner–Nyquist–so there is reason for hoping that Instilled Regard, with plenty of stamina in his pedigree, has more to offer on the road to Churchill Downs.

When agent Mike Ryan first saw Hip 1630, a Curlin  colt bred and consigned by KatieRich Farms, he was reminded of another son of Curlin that he purchased with Niall Brennan a few years ago.

“He reminded me a lot of Palace Malice . (He had) a lot of leg—a beautiful quality to him,” Ryan said of the yearling colt he purchased for $450,000 during the Sept. 17 sixth session of the Keeneland September yearling sale.

“He reminded me a lot of him (Palace Malice), just very smooth, light on his feet, (with a) great line of mechanics to him. Nothing I could really fault him on,” he added. “I knew when I saw him on the farm Aug. 24 …  he wasn’t going to be cheap. He oozes quality.”

The colt, who is out of the winning A.P. Indy mare False Impression and comes from the extended female family of 2012 Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Believe You Can, has big shoes to fill as 2013 Belmont Stakes (G1) winner Palace Malice finished his career with six graded stakes wins and more than $2.6 million in earnings.

“I wouldn’t say he’s a bargain, but we’re very happy to have the horse (Hip 1630). We didn’t steal him by any means. He was well sold, but at the same time we got a good horse,” the agent said.

Ryan, who has been active throughout the September sale so far, made six other purchases during the Sunday session, including a Scat Daddy filly, Hip 1653, for $400,000 out of the Hermitage Farm consignment.

“The good ones are getting a little scarcer, but the there are still a lot of nice horses here today.”

Rising Stock, KatieRich Farms Becoming Known for Quality Consignments: BloodHorse 9/2/17

September 2nd, 2017|Comments Off on Rising Stock, KatieRich Farms Becoming Known for Quality Consignments: BloodHorse 9/2/17

By: Lenny Shulman

LARRY DOYLE IS NOTHING IF not a numbers guy. So when the former Wall Street stockbroker and money manager looks over the results from last year’s Keeneland September yearling sale, he takes a measure of assurance and pride that his plans for his KatieRich Farms are coming to fruition. Among the leading consignors by average, there is KatieRich, named for his and wife Karen’s two children, having sold nine yearlings for an average of $204,556.

Those graduates, now 2-year-olds and in the care of trainers such as Shug McGaughey and Bob Baffert, seem poised, along with KatieRich graduates from previous sales, to make a name not only for themselves but for the Doyles’ operation near Midway, Ky., which is on track to burst forward after being conceived just a decade ago.

A native of Long Island, Larry Doyle in his formative years hitchhiked to Belmont Park with an older brother, enhancing his love of numbers through handicapping. Taking his numeric skills to Wall Street, Doyle, now 59, took a job in 1981 with Thomas Mellon Evans, the owner of that year’s dual classic winner Pleasant Colony. Working closely with Evans’ accounting team, Doyle was able to immerse himself in the business aspect of the horse racing industry, and as his career trajectory rose, he took the jump into Thoroughbred ownership.

 “Being a stockbroker by trade, then evolving into money management, you get some preparation for the horse business, but the horse business is a bit more challenging than the stock market,”
Doyle noted. “In fact, the stock market is like tic-tac-toe compared to the horse business. “You make some money and then you say, ‘Let’s go try our luck in a negative return business and see how we do,’ ” he said with a laugh. Doyle has managed to keep a positive attitude, though, buffered by the fact that John Malone, whose Liberty Media stock Doyle has been invested in for more than 30 years, has made a huge investment in Thoroughbreds with his purchase of Bridlewood Farm near Ocala, Fla.

“It’s been rewarding being a shareholder with him,” said Doyle. “He’s a remarkable and brilliant man, and I’m curious how long he stays in racehorses.”

 Doyle began in racehorses in 2000 when he purchased the Carson City filly Miss City Halo at Keeneland September and the Clever Trick filly Miss Mary Apples for $37,000 a year later. Miss Halo City won the Martha Washington Stakes at 3, and Miss Mary Apples showed promise when second in the Schuylerville Stakes (G2) at 2. Hampered by a breathing problem, Miss Mary Apples placed in four other stakes and ran up $171,172 in earnings. Both Miss City Halo and Miss Mary Apples remain in the KatieRich broodmare band today, with Miss Mary Apples enjoying success when her first foal, Miss Red Delicious (by Empire Maker), became a two-time stakes winner of more than $200,000 and her Pure Prize filly, Dr. Diamonds Prize, a stakes winner of more than $240,000.

Doyle boarded his mares at an outside farm during his early years in the breeding end of the industry, and in 2007 he and Karen decided to search for a small farm to call their own. The timing didn’t seem to work in their favor initially, but all’s well that ends well. In the teeth of a strong real estate market, there wasn’t a lot of inventory, so they bought a 330-acre cattle farm on Leestown Road, considerably more land than they had in mind.

The financial crisis that became known as the Great Recession came along a year later, putting farms for sale wherever one looked. However, the Doyles ended up quite pleased with their parcel, which they converted into a showplace farm under the direction of president, head trainer, and any other title that comes along Mark Hubley, and the construction expertise of Robert “Elmo” Richardson,  a mason who oversaw construction of the barns and roads on the KatieRich property.

Key positions at the farm today are filled by manager Tammy Ingebritson and foremen David Ramirez and Orlin Baires. (more…)

Lisa’s Booby Trap’s First Foal Sells for $135,000

August 14th, 2017|Comments Off on Lisa’s Booby Trap’s First Foal Sells for $135,000

By Joe Nevills

Lisa’s Booby Trap’s first foal was shown 65 times at the Fasig-Tipton sale.

It’s been seven years since Lisa’s Booby Trap came from Finger Lakes and scored an underdog victory in the Loudonville Stakes at Saratoga, but her name was still heard Saturday when her first foal, a Big Brown colt, sold to SGV Thoroughbreds for $135,000 at the Fasig-Tipton New York-bred yearling sale.

Lisa’s Booby Trap earned a cult following for succeeding in spite of her humble beginnings – she’s blind in one eye and has a club foot – and those same factors create another uphill battle when it comes to marketing her foals.

That challenge has been taken by Mark Hubley, president of KatieRich Farms, which bought Lisa’s Booby Trap in summer 2015 following the death of Tim Snyder, the massive mare’s longtime owner and trainer. She resides on the KatieRich property in Midway, Ky.

“There have been some people that have been aware of who Lisa’s Booby Trap is, and others not,” Hubley said prior to the sale. “She’s probably more popular with the fans than the pinhookers and bloodstock agents.”

Hubley and Snyder’s friendship reached back to their time at Finger Lakes in the 1980s. When Lisa’s Booby Trap was reaching the end of her ontrack career, Hubley contacted the trainer to discuss breeding plans, such as potentially entering a foal-share agreement to send the mare to higher-quality stallions, or consigning her at auction. However, they never came together on a deal.

After Snyder’s death in March 2015, Hubley was contacted about buying the mare with the Big Brown colt that sold Saturday in-utero. Though he was her first foal, it was the second year of her broodmare career after a visit to Disco Rico failed to produce a foal the previous season.

“I bought her in foal, so I didn’t do the mating,” Hubley said. “She’s going to go to good stallions. She’s got a Tale of the Cat weanling who is also very big, and Tale of the Cats are generally not that big. She’s in foal to Hard Spun, and that thing ought to be a giraffe.”

Hubley said the Big Brown colt was shown about 65 times Friday, the auction’s first full day for inspections.

“I think he brings a lot, especially for a first foal,” Hubley said. “He’s got a lot of substance and good size. He’s got a good temperament. We’ve got fancier colts in the September sale, but I think he compares very favorably with anything we have.”

Steven Venosa of SGV Thoroughbreds said the colt would eventually be trained by New York-based George Weaver. While he was well aware of the mare’s story, Venosa said the colt sold himself.

“We kind of factored that in, but we just thought he was the best physical in the sale,” he said. “We liked the horse a lot, and that’s why we bought him.”

KatieRich Farms had a Productive Day at Keeneland September Saturday

Getting ‘Rich’ at KEESEP

Larry and Karen Doyle’s KatieRich Farms had a productive day at Keeneland September Saturday, selling four yearlings for a combined $1,545,000, including the $650,000 Ghostzapper colt (hip 1231) who went to Dickman Legacy Ranch.

“We’re very happy–they did a great job on the farm,” offered Larry Doyle while overseeing one of his other offerings in the back ring. “[Farm manager] Tammy [Ingebritson] did a terrific job raising the horse and bringing him up. I think they got a really nice horse.”

Doyle said he purchased hip 1231’s dam Formal Affair (Dynaformer), a half to GI Blue Grass S. hero The Cliff’s Edge (Gulch), privately several years ago. Her Harlan’s Holiday filly sold for $190,000 at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga two years ago.

“I was [expecting a nice price]–maybe not $650,000, but maybe in the $400,000 [range],” Doyle said of the price tag for the Ghostzapper colt. “Our reserve was $250,000, but I thought it would go a lot higher–there was a lot of action on the horse.”

Doyle’s operation has done well in previous years later in the sale. KatieRich sold a $700,000 Smart Strike filly to top Session 6 at this auction in 2014.

Among KatieRich’s other Saturday offerings was hip 1274, the last Tapit to go through the ring during this year’s sale. Agents Hanzly Albina and Nick Sallusto purchased the colt for $475,000 on behalf of an undisclosed client.

“He’s just a beautiful example of what his good sire can do,” said Albina. “His body was unbelievable, beautiful walk–the usual.”

Sallusto noted that the colt, whose third dam is Hall of Famer Personal Ensign (Private Account), was a candidate to be resold at a 2-year-old sale next year. His dam was sold by KatieRich for $530,000 in foal to Curlin at the 2015 Keeneland November Sale.

KatieRich’s third well-sold yearling was hip 1334, a More Than Ready half-sister to recent Kentucky Downs Juvenile S. runner-up Parlor (Lonhro {Aus}). The May 9 foal went to Justin Casse, Agent for Joe Minor’s JSM Eqine, for $390,000.

KatieRich also sold a Tapit filly out of GISW Her Smile (Include) at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale in August. –@BDiDonatoTDN
