Malibu Moon had a personal sales-best during the first Thursday session of the Keeneland September Yearling sale, which runs Sept. 13-25.

Jacob West, bidding on behalf of Robert and Lawana Low, went to $610,000 for hip No. 977, a colt bred and consigned by KatieRich Farms.

“He was kind of representative of what they look for,” West said of the yearling. “He looks like a big two-turn horse out of a mare who could run by a stallion they love. He vetted clean and was a beautiful specimen.”

The bay colt is out of Fantasy of Flight, who placed in five graded stakes.

KatieRich acquired Fantasy of Flight privately during her racing career. She had a Malibu Moon filly sell for $425,000 at the 2018 September sale.
