Stephanie's Kitten wins the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf.

According to The Blood-Horse, Ken and Sarah Ramsey struck a deal today regarding the mare Stephanie's Kitten with Northern Farm of Japan, owned by the Yoshida family.  The Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf Champion was sold privately for $2.8 million after being bought back for $2.95 million the previous evening at the Fasig-Tipton November sale.

Mr. Ramsey told The Blood-Horse that he “saw the sale was down last night and that only one horse in the sale brought $3 million, so I thought that was where the market is now and accepted the offer.”

Ramsey had been considering keeping the 6-year-old earner of $4.29 million and breeding her himself, but ultimately accepted the Yoshida's offer as a “business decision.”  He had offered Stephanie's Kitten at last year's Fasig-Tipton November sale, but declined to sell at $3.95 million, and went on to win over $1.6 million with her this year.
