Multiple Graded Stakes winning filly, So Many Ways (Sightseeing – Happy Scene by Dehere) has been sold to Mr. Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farms in Hokkaido, Japan, by her owner Maggi Moss, it was announced Monday.

She captured the Grade 3 Schuylerville, the Grade 1 Spinaway, and the Grade 3 Eight Belles. She completed her career on Sept. 21, winning the $ 400,000 Charles Town Oaks.

“I am grateful to Jim Schenck of Lexington, Ky., for discovering this filly, and to Franklin Smith of Elloree, S.C., for developing her,” said Moss.  “I would also like to thank Tony Dutrow for the irreplaceable memories of her wins at Saratoga, and the amazing job he did with her.  I am grateful for the exceptional job Tom Amoss did this year in understanding her and loving her as much as I did in her gutsy and amazing wins in 2013. Most of all, it is not her tenaciousness or athleticism that I will remember, but her kind and almost human personality, that made this decision so difficult.  I am confident that her new home with Mr. Yoshida, alongside Azeri, Zazu, Musical Romance and other great mares, that she will be amongst royalty and taken care of in the same loving and wonderful environment. Albeit, while it was a very difficult decision, I know she will be loved as much as we all loved her and live a life fit for the queen that she is.”
