Filly brings $160K in Texas


Fillies led the way late Tuesday afternoon at Fasig-Tipton Texas's 2-year-old auction at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. At 5 p.m. Eastern, the session leader was a $160,000 Stormy Atlantic filly, the only six-figure horse at that time.

Charles A. Castille bought the chestnut filly, who sold as Hip No. 148 from Asmussen Horse Center, agent. Named Akiane, the filly is out of the Marquetry winner Win for Stacy and is a half-sister to the stakes winner Bandido. Bandido gave the pedigree a last-minute boost with his March 29 victory in the restricted Cocodrie Stakes at Delta Downs.

Hip No. 148 had breezed an eighth of a mile in 10.60 seconds on Sunday.

Rising Star Stable paid $90,000 for Hip No. 187, a Whywhywhy daughter of Cigarlighter consigned by Al Pike, agent. Named Lightlightlight, the bay filly is a half-sister to stakes-placed Silk Degrees.
