consignment to the 2020 Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearlings Showcase. Frommer then consigned the filly
to the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Spring Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training, where Miller, acting as agent, bought her for $120,000. With a win and a third in three starts, Liam’s Dove has earned $68,900.

“She fell out of there and I saw that we were all pretty much in a straight line,” said winning rider Kyle Frey. “So, I clucked to her a little bit and got a good spot up front. On the backside I saw her ears go up, and that’s when you know they’re happy. We just went on with it from there and she got it done.”
