Doninga Farm up for sale


LEXINGTON, Ky. - David and Ginger Mullins, whose sales agency sold the $2.8 million top filly from a one-horse consignment at Keeneland's 2002 July sale, have put their Doninga Farm on the market.

The 113-acre property is located on Greenwich Pike near Lexington. Realtor Bill Justice has the listing.

The Mullinses have dissolved their business partnership, but both will remain active independently in the Thoroughbred business. The farm will remain under the operation of longtime manager Jody Sparks until it sells. After that, Sparks will open his own operation and will continue to board horses on behalf of David Mullins, Ginger Mullins, and their clients. David Mullins will continue to sell horses under the name of David Mullins/Doninga Bloodstock.

"After the farm sells, Jody Sparks will move to another property and will continue to prepare our horses in the same great manner as always," David Mullins said.

The Mullinses' Doninga operation enjoyed much success in recent years. In addition to the $2.8 million Storm Cat-Amelia Bearheart filly they sold to Eugene Melnyk at Keeneland July last year, they consigned $2.2 million Canadian champion Saoirse to the 2001 Keeneland November breeding stock sale.
