Grade 1 winner and producer Hookedonthefeelin and the dam of 2001 Horse of the Year Point Given are among the mares ClassicStar will disperse at this year's Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall mixed sale. The auction takes place Nov. 5 in Lexington.

Turko's Turn, 2001's broodmare of the year and dam of Point Given, will sell in foal to Storm Cat.

Other standouts in the ClassicStar draft are Regal Miss Copelan, the dam of multiple graded winner Rockport Harbor, in foal to Rockport Harbor's sire, Unbridled's Song; Win's Fair Lady, a stakes-winning full sister to multiple Grade 2 winner Graeme Hall and a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Harmony Lodge, in foal to Unbridled's Song; Ballado's Halo, a stakes-placed full sister to two-time champion Ashado, in foal to Elusive Quality; Profit Column, dam of Grade 3 winner Final Round, in foal to Final Round's sire Storm Cat; Sheepscot, dam of Grade 2 winner Navesink River, in foal to Giant's Causeway; and Stylelistick, a Grade 3-placed stakes-winner and half-sister to English champion Playful Act, in foal to Unbridled's Song.

The mares will sell through the Taylor Made agency.
