Champion Midnight Bisou in Foal to Tapit Supplemented to Book 1 of Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale
Keeneland has announced that champion and $7.4 million earner Midnight Bisou, a 7-year-old daughter of Midnight Lute who is in foal to Tapit, has been supplemented to Book 1 of the 79th November Breeding Stock Sale on Nov. 7. Midnight Bisou is consigned by Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa.
Midnight Bisou won the $1 million Cotillion (G1) and Santa Anita Oaks (G1) in addition to three other graded stakes at 3. She was named the champion older dirt female at 4 in 2019 following a dominating campaign that produced seven wins in eight races. Among her seven graded stakes wins that year were victories in the Personal Ensign (G1) at Saratoga, Ogden Phipps (G1) at Belmont and Apple Blossom Handicap (G1) at Oaklawn.
Midnight Bisou returned in early 2020 to finish second in the $20 million Saudi Cup against males and win the Fleur de Lis (G2) at Churchill Downs.
Winner of 13 races – all stakes – in 22 starts over four seasons, Midnight Bisou earned $7,451,520 during her illustrious racing career.
Out of Grade 3 winner Diva Delite, by Repent, Midnight Bisou is a half-sister to recent Champagne (G1) runner-up and FanDuel Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) candidate Verifying.
Diva Delight, who is in foal to Gun Runner, also is cataloged to Book 1. Out of the winning Tour d’Or mare Tour Hostess, she is consigned by Hunter Valley Farm, agent.
Book 1 starts Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. ET. Keeneland will accept supplements to Book 1 until the auction begins
