“Nothing but Net”is how Thoroughbred Daily News described the sale of this handy filly. Consigned by Hunters Valley Farms Agent and purchased by Big Steps Training for $250,000, the Sulis filly was the filly sale topper for day 3 Keeneland Mixed Breed Sale. Advised by Bloodstock Agent Carl McEntee, Hank Nothhaft’s HnR Nothhaft Horseracing LLC purchased Sulis carrying her first foal-this Harlan Holiday filly-for $105,000 at this sale last year.

With that Winstar residents sad passing last week, the filly proved in her “virtual” second time through the ring to more than double what she and Sulis brought twelve months ago.
