Conquest Stables to disperse at Keeneland
By Martin Stevens 2:52PM 20 AUG 2016

LEADING US operation Conquest Stables is to disperse all of its stock at this year's Keeneland November Breeding-Stock Sale.

Ernie Semersky and Dory Newell, the owners behind Conquest Stables, bought their first horse after attending the 2012 Kentucky Derby and quickly became a prominent name in American racing, with most of their horses carrying the 'Conquest' name.

"Unfortunately, because of personal reasons, we have decided to step back from racing at this time," Semersky said in a statement.

"But we feel these up-and-coming horses would be at home in any international racing stable."

The dispersal will be conducted by Lane's End Farm and feature 114 lots comprising racing and breeding-stock.

The jewel of the draft looks likely to be Conquest Stables' Grade 1 winner My Conquestadory, a daughter of Artie Schiller who landed the Alcibiades Stakes at two. She is in foal to North American champion sire Tapit. My Conquestadory's Tapit colt foal will also be on offer.

Also in the catalogue will be Conquest Typhoon, a Grade 2 winner and Canada's champion two-year-old colt of 2014, Grade 2 scorer Conquest Daddyo and Grade 1-placed Conquest Eclipse.
