Email

Fasig-Tipton Kentucky's final auction of 2003, its one-day mixed sale, got underway at Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Ky., on Monday with a $40,000 early session-leader. That was the price David Hager II, agent, paid for the Jolie's Halo mare Jolie's Dream, a half-sister to stakes winner and $290,000 earner Gators N Bears.

The Lazy Q Ranch agency offered the 6-year-old Jolie's Dream as a broodmare prospect. Though she is not a stakes performer, Jolie's Dream has earned more than $114,000.

The afternoon's second-highest price by 4:30 p.m. Eastern was $32,000 for another mare, the stakes-producer Life of the Party. Brereton Jones Jr. bought the 10-year-old daughter of Pleasant Colony, who was offered in foal to Catienus. A daughter of group winner Top Socialite, Life of the Party already is the dam of Group 3-placed One More Round. Ramsey Farm sold the mare.

* Hadette, a broodmare believed to be in foal to Yes It's True, brought a bid of $35,000 from Servel Ranch Mexico to top the Fasig-Tipton Texas mixed sale at Lone Star Park on Sunday.

In all, 148 of the 188 horses that went through the ring sold for a total of $543,600, or an average of $3,673. Last year, 207 horses sold for an average of $3,215.

Hadette was consigned by Kellie Creek Farm Inc. She is by Hadif and is a winning half-sister to Bucquestor, a stakes winner of $169,439.

Yes It's True is a Grade 1 winner of over $1 million. His first foals will begin racing in 2004.
