In 2020, Keeneland celebrated the success of longtime consignor, David Anderson when he made fireworks with this Medaglia d’Oro filly.

Trusting Your Instincts
David Anderson’s Anderson Farms has been selling at Keeneland September for many years. So, when he believed he had a million-dollar prospect, he knew he had to bring her to the 2020 Keeneland September Sale. He trusted his instincts and the decision paid off.
A Seven-Figure Sale
That prospect, a filly by Medaglia d’Oro, sold for $1.6 million to Sheikh Hamdan’s Shadwell Estate Company Ltd. She was the sale’s third-highest-priced yearling overall.
Founded by David’s late father, Bob, Anderson Farms has had a steady stream of star September Sale graduates, like Canadian Horse of the Year Wonder Gadot and Grade 1 winner Hard Not to Love.
All in the Family
At the 2017 September Sale, David sold Group 1 winner Sergei Prokofiev for $1.1 million to Coolmore’s M. V. Magnier. Entering stud this year, Sergei Prokofiev is a half-brother to the $1.6 million filly sold to Shadwell in 2020 – a sign of her bright future ahead.
