Flay Cooks up Winners in Sales Ring

Keeneland September Yearling Sale Barn Notes

Stone Farm, agent, has consigned two seven-figure yearlings bred by acclaimed chef, restaurateur, author and television personality Bobby Flay: a filly by Tapit and a filly by Tiznow. On Tuesday, the Tapit filly out of Grade 3 winner Super Espresso, by Medaglia d’Oro, sold to Robert Krembil/Chiefswood Stable for $1 million. On Wednesday, Stonereath Stud paid $1.1 million for the Tiznow filly out of group-placed Countess Lemonade, by Storm Cat.

Flay, who attended the September Sale, is a lifelong racing fan who is involved in numerous facets of the industry. He raced More Than Real to win the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf and is among the 15 celebrity racing fans and owners who are Breeders’ Cup Ambassadors. At Keeneland, Flay won the 2006 Giant’s Causeway with Gilded Gold, owned in partnership with Robert E. Masterson and Barry Weisbord.

Flay also is on the board of directors of the New York Racing Association and the Breeders’ Cup.

When asked about Flay’s success at the September Sale, Arthur Hancock of Stone Farm said, “He cooked up a good stew.”
