Pomona, CA (October 17, 2018)-After 28 years as the final sale at the Barretts Fairplex complex winded its way through the last few hip numbers of the supplemental catalog, agent David Meah bid $75,000 for California-bred La Nez (Hip 313) to top the sale. La Nez is an 11-year-old stakes-winning daughter of Storm Creek—Iza Bay, by Iza a Saros. Adrian Gonzalez’s Checkmate Thoroughbreds sold the mare in foal to Danzing Candy.

“She’s a really good racehorse in foal to Danzing Candy, and we’re a big believer in that stallion,” said Meah, whose wife, Anna, is about to launch their new training stable at Santa Anita Park. “Danzing Candy got a lot of talented mares in his first book, and she could be one of the top mares.”

Danzing Candy a multiple Grade 2 stakes winner of over $700,000, in his eleven starts, stood his first season in 2018 to a full book and was standing for $5,000 as property of a syndicate.
