Mr. John Oxley, owner of the 2001 Kentucky Derby Winner Monarchos and Champion Beautiful Pleasure, has campaigned numerous top class horses. When asked about the decision to sell Pretty City Dancer and La Coronel Oxley was quoted saying, “I've had so much fun at the yearling auctions the past few years that I felt it was time to generate some revenue to reinvest in the yearling market. It was not an easy decision for me, but I am very excited about the future of our stable.”
