Groupie Doll sold at Keeneland Sales

Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Champion sprinter Groupie Doll has been sold at Keeneland's November Breeding Stock Sale. Mandy Pope's Whisper Hill Farm bought the 5-year-old mare for $3.1 million.

"She was gorgeous," Pope said. "Obviously, she won $2.4 million, she's a champion, maybe a champion two years in a row. She's elegant. She was calm and cool, nothing ever ruffled a feather whatsoever with her. She just sits there royally and regally taking everything in stride like, 'OK, I'm here. I'm cool.'"

Groupie Doll won her second straight Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at Santa Anita last Saturday to cap her award winning career. She was voted the 2012 Eclipse Award as champion Female Sprinter and is likely to gain a second crown for 2013.

She was trained by Buff Bradley who owned the mare with his father Fred Bradley, Carl Hurst and Brent Burns.

Groupie Doll earned $2,478,850 with 11 wins in 21 career starts.
