Figures crash at Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed

FIGURES plummeted at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale on Monday, with 206 horses selling for $2,392,900.

The sale was reduced by a session to a single day of trading, which contributed to the 63 per cent drop in aggregate. However, the average plunged 43 per cent to $11,616 while the median declined 29 per cent to $5,000.

The only positive note was the clearance rate, which rose by nine per cent to 84 per cent.


The Argentine Group 2 winner Solarana, whose half-sister So Shiny captured the UAE 1,000 Guineas on Friday, topped the sale when selling from Bluewater Sales to Dr Naveed Chowhan for $130,000. The daughter of Mutakddim had been bought back for $110,000 at the Keeneland November Sale last year.

Craig and Holly Bandoroff's Denali Stud paid $125,000 for Grade 2 winner Spectacular Moon, a daughter of Migrating Moon who is in foal to Speightstown.

Unsurprisingly, Speightstown, who has sired three individual stakes winners since the turn of the year, was in demand throughout the day, with Dixiana Farm paying $120,000 for the stakes-placed Pine Bluff mare Joyce Ann alongside her recently born Speightstown foal.

Speightstown was also responsible for the highest-priced yearling, ahalf-brother to stakes winner Proceed Bee, who was bought by MJO Farm for $82,000.
