Black-type producer tops Heiligbrodt dispersal

THE dispersal of Heiligbrodt Racing Stable, attached to the Fasig-Tipton July Sale, saw all 73 horses offered change hands for an average of $40,404 and a top price of $240,000.

That was for the 15-year-old mare Richbabe, a daughter of Illinois Derby winner Richman and a triple winner as a juvenile. Despite her age she has only had two runners, one of which is Grade 3 Debutante Stakes winner Richwoman. Agent Ciaran Dunne signed for the mare.

Also popular was the two-year-old Driscoll, by Candy Ride. The unraced colt is out of No End In Sight, whose only runner to date is stakes winner and Grade 3-placed Kinsolving. James L Stone signed the ticket for $105,000.

There were two other six-figure lots: the War Front three-year-old filly Spoils and the six-year-old stakes-winning mare Sax Appeal. Spoils was knocked down to Fleetwood Bloodstock for $100,000. She is the first foal of the winning mare Conquistadorelite.

Sax Appeal was a winner each year from her juvenile season to her five-year-old year. She was sold in foalto Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver to Jonathan Thorne for $100,000.

The dispersal was offered by Bluewater Sales and grossed $2,949,500.
