Kentucky Oaks winner SHEDARESTHEDEVIL, a current leader in the distaff division, will be offered this fall at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale.  Hunter Valley Farm will consign the four-year-old daughter of DAREDEVIL on behalf of owners Qatar Racing Limited, Flurry Racing Stables LLC, and Big Aut Farms.

A graded stakes performer each year from 2 to 4, SHEDARESTHEDEVIL is a three-time Grade 1 winner and seven-time graded stakes winner of $2,291,458.   Last year at three, she defeated the best of her generation to win the 146th Kentucky Oaks (G1) in the fastest time for 1 1/8 miles in the race’s history.  That classic win highlighted an outstanding three-year-old season that included five graded stakes wins or placings, resulting in her being named an Eclipse Finalist for Three-Year-Old filly.

This year at four, SHEDARESTHEDEVIL has been nothing short of dominant – winning four of five starts.  She began the year with a victory in the Azeri S. (G2) at Oaklawn, and then took the La Troienne S. (G1) at Churchill Downs.  Following a third in the Ogden Phipps S. (G1), she traveled cross country to Del Mar, cruising to her third Grade 1 victory in the Clement Hirsch S.   Most recently she captured Churchill Down’s Locust Grove S. (G3) on September 18 and will now be pointed for the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1), where she will be one of race’s favorites.

“Very rarely does a multiple grade 1 winner and classic winner, in the best form of her career, come to public auction,” said consignor Fergus Galvin of Hunter Valley Farm.  “She is a remarkable talent, and at just four-years-old, can provide her next owner with a world class race mare to campaign on the sport’s biggest and brightest stages.”

A 4-year-old daughter of DAREDEVIL, the sire of multiple Classic winners, SHEDARESTHEDEVIL is out of a multiple graded stakes producing CONGRATS mare.  Her immediate family includes Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner CRAFTY C. T., and traces back to the prolific producer MUMTAZ, ancestress of nearly 70 stakes winners and 27 graded stakes winners.  These include North American and European Group 1 winners HERNANDO, PALACE MUSIC, WELL TIME, JOHANN QUATZ, and PRIZE SPOT.

“Shedaresthedevil showed talent from the start. A debut winner at two, she progressed to win Grade 1 races at three and four,” said her trainer Brad Cox. “She's a tremendous filly who is as sound and consistent as a racehorse could be.”

The Fasig-Tipton November Sale will be held on Tuesday, November 9, after the Breeders’ Cup.

Added Boyd Browning, President of Fasig-Tipton: “Buyers will have an opportunity to purchase one of the finest fillies in the world with unlimited potential both as a racehorse and a broodmare – and she could very well have a significant update from the Breeders’ Cup.”
