Elite Sales to Offer Midnight Bisou at Fasig-Tipton November Sale
Elite Sales Press Release
Midnight Bisou, the top-rated older female in North America, will be offered by Elite Sales at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale's Night of the Stars on Nov. 4. Campaigned by Bloom Racing, Madaket Stables, and Allen Racing, Midnight Bisou is a five-time Grade 1 winner and an 11-time Graded stakes winner from seven furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. She is undefeated in 2019 and has never finished off the board in 17 career starts while earning $3,245,000.
"Very rarely is an in-form, young, set-to-be crowned champion offered at public auction," said Elite Sales' Bradley Weisbord. "Here is an opportunity to buy the best filly in training, a five-time Grade 1 winner, and a superstar physical. We're honored that Bloom Racing has chosen Elite to consign her."
This year Midnight Bisou has proved unbeatable in a spectacular season, most recently winning the Personal Ensign S. (G1), running down Elate in a dramatic stretch duel in the third meeting between the two distaff stars with Midnight Bisou prevailing on each occasion. She has also won the Ogden Phipps S. (G1), the Apple Blossom H. (G1), the Azeri S. (G2), the Molly Pitcher S. (G3), and the Houston Ladies Classic S. (G3) in 2019.
Last year at three, after breaking her maiden in the Santa Ynez S. (G2) at Santa Anita, Midnight Bisou rattled off wins in the Santa Ysabel S. (G3), the Santa Anita Oaks (G1), the Mother Goose S. (G2), and the Cotillion S. (G1). Additionally, she placed in four Graded stakes, including a second-place finish in the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) and third-place finishes in the Kentucky Oaks (G1), the Alabama S. (G1), and against older mares in the Breeders' Cup Distaff (G1).
She has recorded five triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures: 104, 103, 101, 101, 100.
By Midnight Lute, Midnight Bisou is out of Florida Oaks (G3) winner Diva Delite. Now four, Midnight Bisou was purchased as a juvenile by Jeff Bloom.
"Midnight Bisou has truly been a dream come true for me, my family, and our partners," said Bloom. "She exemplifies class, beauty, and elegance, and she consistently displays unrivaled determination and dominance on the racetrack. She has an incredibly intelligent eye and confident presence, combined with an engaging and warm personality. She has taken us all on the ride of a lifetime and has forever changed our lives."
