Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale
LEXINGTON, Ky.– 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 is a third-generation Taylor Made Sales grad following Unbridled’s Song and her sire, Liam’s Map,” Taylor Made CEO Mark Taylor said. “She has lived up to the family legacy both on the track and with her absolutely gorgeous conformation!”
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 5¾ 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 4¼-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.
“Juju was a tremendous filly that gave our family so much excitement,” Albaugh Racing Manager Jason Loutsch said. “She ran eight times and was on the board in all eight. Winning a Grade 1 at Keeneland is something we will never forget.
“She has such a big heart, great mind and lots of speed. We can’t wait to see her babies on the track.”
“We are excited to welcome Juju’s Map back to Keeneland, where she sold as a yearling and won our premier race for 2-year-old fillies,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Tony Lacy said. “Her top-class breeding and precocity on the race track make her a valuable offering in Book 1 of the November Sale.”
Book 1 begins at 1 p.m. on Nov. 7 after Keeneland hosts the Breeders’ Cup World Championships Nov. 4-5.
