Kentucky Oaks winner Cathryn Sophia will become a broodmare in Kentucky after selling at Fasig-Tipton.

Kentucky Oaks winner Cathryn Sophia sold for $1.4 million to multinational operation SF Bloodstock Monday night at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall selected mixed sale.

The 3-year-old Street Boss filly was consigned as a broodmare prospect by Taylor Made Sales, as agent for owner Cash Is King LLC.

Maryland-bred Cathryn Sophia won 6 of 9 career starts for earnings of $1,229,720, highlighted by a 2 3/4-length score in this year's Kentucky Oaks. She also won the Grade 2 Forward Gal Stakes and Davona Dale Stakes earlier in the season at Gulfstream Park. She placed in three other Grade 1 events.

"She's a beautiful mare, and brilliant," SF Bloodstock representative Tom Ryan said. "We saw her in Florida this winter. You hope that you could ever own a Kentucky Oaks winner, and tonight we do, so we're very excited about it."

Ryan said that Cathryn Sophia will remain in Kentucky for her broodmare career, and that SF Bloodstock would be deciding among "a number of stallions," with Triple Crown sire Pioneerof the Nile among one possibility.
