Multiple Grade 1 winner Miss Temple City will be offered at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale on Monday, November 6 in Lexington, Kentucky. The five-year-old mare will be consigned as a racing/broodmare prospect by Select Sales, agent.
The globe-trotting Miss Temple City is among the most accomplished turf females in recent memory. Trained by Graham Motion, she defeated males twice in Grade 1 company in 2016 in the Maker's 46 Mile and Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland – the only female to ever win either race. In winning both races in the same year, she joined Wise Dan as only the second horse in history to complete such a remarkable sweep. Among those she defeated in the Shadwell Turf Mile was subsequent Breeders' Cup Mile (G1) winner Tourist.
Miss Temple City most recently won yesterday's Kentucky Downs Ladies Turf Stakes (G3) to push her earnings to nearly $1.7 million.
“What an incredible ride it has been with Miss Temple City,” said Bob Feld, who bred Miss Temple ity and co-owns her as part of The Club Racing LLC, along with Sagamore Farm and Needle In A Haystack LLC. “From the day she was born she was truly a star, but to watch her amazing career unfold into such a remarkable racehorse is incredible.”
A versatile and durable mare, five-time stakes winner Miss Temple City has won at six different race tracks from ages two to five, at distances ranging from 5 ½ furlongs to 1 1/16 miles on turf. Her historic campaign included three consecutive trips from 2014-2016 from her American home-base to compete at Royal Ascot. Those performances included a game fourth place finish in the Coronation S. (G1), where she was beaten just two lengths by top rated French three-year-old Ervedya and multiple European Champion Found.
A daughter of Dynaformer's track record breaking son Temple City, Miss Temple City is out of the stakes placed Artax mare Glittering. She is a full-sister to graded stakes winner Pricedtoperfection.
“Select Sales is truly honored to consign a mare as special as Miss Temple City at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale,” said Amy Bunt, Director of Sales for Select Sales. “Very few race mares have had such a historic and international racing career as she. Her accomplishments, pedigree, and beautiful conformation make her uniquely suited to fit any number of major breeding programs throughout the world.”
Miss Temple City is eyeing a fall campaign that could include a race on opening weekend during Keeneland's fall meet and another potential tilt at the Breeders' Cup at Del Mar.
