HnR buys back Envied at Keeneland Nov 2022
Hank Nothhaft’s HnR NothhaftHorseracing purchased HnR homebred by American Pharoah for $220,000 at Keeneland November. Envied is out of HnR race horse and broodmare Halljoy by Halling.
Envied, campaigned by HnR, earned black type at Louisiana Downs placing in the Happy Ticket Stakes and at Colonial Downs in the Tyson Gilpin Stakes.
Upon retirement and as part of a risk mitigation strategy, HnR used a foal share arrangement to breed Envied to Justify. In order to retain 100% ownership in Envied, HnR placed Envied in the Keeneland November auction via Ballysax Bloodstock for a potential buy back..
Due to strong interest in Envied, particularly by some Japanese bidders, HnR paid up for Envied at a $220,000 price tag. Hank Nothhaft stated, “We are quite happy to retain her at this price, look forward to foaling her Justify colt in the spring, with current thinking of breeding her back to Justify.”
So, Envied is by Triple Crown winner & Breeders’ Cup Classic winner American Pharoah. Her breeding partner Justify shares the same achievements.
