Don Munger's stakes winning filly Roveing Patrol is moving to Kentucky after giving Munger his first career stakes win. The filly won the Diane Kem Stakes at Emerald Downs on Sept. 9 and was approached with an offer from a bloodstock agent the next day.
The filly has been purchased by Paul Reddam for $100,000 and is pointing towards a possible start in the $400,000 Alcibiades Stakes (gr. 1) at Keeneland on Oct. 5. Munger told the Daily Racing Form that the decision to sell his stakes winner wasn't difficult.
“Like someone told me the other day, it's better to be sorry you sold a horse than to be sorry that you didn't. That sums it up for me. I had one once who I got offered a lot of money for and didn't take it, and two months later I had to put him down. You don't know from one day to the next whether they're going to stay sound. But she was a real nice horse to work with, she's sound, and, in fact, she was real sweetheart,” Munger said.
