Filly leads Fasig-Tipton sale


A 4-year-old stakes-winning filly by King of Kings had brought the highest price of the final session of the two-day Fasig-Tipton winter mixed sale in Lexington, Ky., as of 5 p.m. Monday.

The filly, Sweet Win, was purchased by North Hills Management out of the Denali Stud consignment for $370,000. Denali Stud was acting as agent for an undisclosed seller.

Sweet Win, out of the St. Jovite mare Win for Juno, won the Grade 3 San Clemente Handicap last year and was third in the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks. She earned $162,980 on the racetrack.

On Sunday, the first day of the sale, 194 horses sold for an average price of $11,990, while the median was $5,000. Forty-nine horses did not receive a bid exceeding the reserve put on the horse by the seller. Gross receipts for the session were $2,326,000.

During last year's first session, 159 horses sold for an average of $14,592 and a median of $5,500.

Sunday's session-topper was Dancal, a 7-year-old Irish-bred mare by Mujadil consigned by Four Star Sales, agent. A graded stakes winner in South Africa, she was sold to Robert H. Lail for $160,000 in foal to Johannesburg, the 2001 juvenile Eclipse Award winner.
