Indian Charlie filly leads Fasig-Tipton selling


LEXINGTON, Ky. – An $245,000 Indian Charlie filly who is closely related to two-time champion Indian Blessing led early selling Monday at Fasig-Tipton Kentucky’s winter mixed sale here.

SF Bloodstock purchased the dark bay or brown yearling from the Gainesway agency. The filly is out of the stakes-placed Matchlite mare Lady’s Legacy, the second dam of Indian Blessing. Indian Blessing, also by Indian Charlie, was 2007’s champion juvenile filly and 2008’s champion female sprinter.

The session-leading filly sold as Hip No. 76.

The highest price for a mare at 3 p.m. was the $170,000 Paul Pompa, Jr., paid for the Hidden Brook agency’s Hatta Diamond. Offered as Hip No. 39, the 7-year-old Street Cry mare was cataloged in foal to Bernardini and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Willow Chief and Sword Chief.

The session’s highest-priced stallion season was lot number 171, a no-guarantee season to Medaglia d’Oro that brought $78,000. Fasig-Tipton does not identify buyers of stallion seasons. Medaglia d’Oro stands at Darley’s Jonabell Farm this year for $100,000 stands and nurses.
