Fasig-Tipton: Three mares bring $150,000 each on Monday


LEXINGTON, Ky. – A quick burst of bidding for stakes-winning females gave Fasig-Tipton’s Kentucky winter mixed sale a trio of session-leaders Monday in Lexington.

Stakes winner Legally Blanca, cataloged as Hip No. 20 in the Paramount Sales consignment, kicked off the early run when auctioned for $150,000 to Fred Allor. Legally Blanca sold as a racing or broodmare prospect. She is a 6-year-old by Northern Afleet who last year equaled Parx Racing’s five-furlong track record of 56.36 seconds. She has $172,690 in earnings.

Paramount Sales also sold Hip No. 27 for $150,000. That was the 7-year-old Jump Start mare Littlemiss Allison. Robert Vukovich bought Littlemiss Allison, who was cataloged in foal to Street Boss. The mare has $277,433 and is a full or half-sister to three other stakes winners.

Late in the afternoon, a third mare brought $150,000 when Polo Green Stable’s Star Worship, in foal to War Front, brought that final bid from Red Diamond Bloodstock. The stakes-placed Orientate mare is 7.

At 3 p.m., those were the session leaders. Two others had brought six figures by that stage. Agent Jack Jones Jr. signed for the $100,000 Stephanie Got Even, a stakes winner by Stephen Got Even consigned by the Lane’s End agency. The 5-year-old daughter of Chateaumist is Grade 2-placed and went through the ring as a broodmare prospect.

Hip No. 21, the 2010 Schuylerville winner Le Mi Geaux, brought $100,000 from Woodford Thoroughbreds. Three Chimneys sold the 4-year-old First Samurai filly as a broodmare prospect on behalf of J. Kirk and Judy Robison.

The one-day auction was to conclude Monday evening.
