Free Drop Billy has top weanling Monday at Keeneland

November 16, 2020

A filly from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Free Drop Billy was the top weanling during the Nov. 16 session of the Keeneland November sale.

Vinery Sales, agent, was the consignor of hip No. 2656, which went to Spendthrift Farm for $72,000.

Bred in Kentucky by Nirvana Farm, the dark bay filly is out of the Stormy Atlantic mare Help the Children, whose dam Humble Clerk won the Arlington Matron (G3) and has three other stakes-winning siblings.

Free Drop Billy was very accomplished at two, winning the Breeders’ Futurity (G1) and finishing second in the Hopeful S. (G1) and Sanford S. (G3). He would go on at three to place in a trio of Triple Crown preps before retiring to Spendthrift Farm.

Free Drop Billy is standing the 2021 season for $5,000 S&N.
