Grade 1 Winner Juju’s Map Cataloged to Book 1
Grade 1 Winner Juju’s Map Cataloged to the Nov. 7 Book 1 of the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale
Keeneland has announced that Grade 1 winner Juju’s Map, a 3-year-old daughter of Liam’s Map, has been cataloged to the 79th November Breeding Stock Sale and will be offered Monday, Nov. 7 during the prestigious Book 1. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent, Juju’s Map is cataloged as a racing or broodmare prospect.
Juju’s Map is one of the outstanding runners bred and raised by Fred Hertrich III, who in his own name or in partnership with John D. Fielding bred six Grade 1 winners of 2021. She is by Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Liam’s Map, whose dam, Miss Macy Sue, by Unbridled’s Song, also produced successful young sire Not This Time.
Juju’s Map possesses a quality female family. Her dam, the Flatter mare Nagambie, is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Fault. Juju’s Map also is from the family of multiple Grade 1 winner Bast and Grade 2 winners Mananan McLir and Fioretti.
Racing for Albaugh Family Stables, Juju’s Map at 2 was among the most talented fillies of her generation. She captured her maiden victory by 53⁄4 lengths as the 3-5 favorite in a performance that launched her into elite company for her next start, Keeneland’s Darley Alcibiades (G1). The 2-1 favorite for the race, she swept to the lead on the far turn and cruised to a 41⁄4-length victory while covering 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.52 – the fastest time for the stakes on the dirt since Racing Hall of Famer Silverbulletday won in 1:43.52 in 1998.
The NetJets Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at Del Mar was next, and Juju’s Map finished second to eventual champion Echo Zulu. Juju’s Map was a finalist for the Eclipse Award as champion 2- year-old filly.
Book 1 begins at 1 p.m. on Nov. 7 after Keeneland hosts the Breeders’ Cup World Championships Nov. 4-5.
