The April Digital Sale closed Tuesday afternoon with in-foal mares leading the way. Offerings included breeding stock, horses of racing age, a two-year-old, and yearlings.

K P Slickem (Hip 3), a half-sister to the dam of champion and recent Florida Derby (G1) winner Forte, sold for $400,000 to Champion Equine to top the sale. Offered in foal to multiple Grade 1 winner Raging Bull (FR) by Mulholland Farm, agent, K P Slickem – a stakes placed winner herself – hails from the immediate family of champions Essential Quality and Folklore and Japanese Triple Crown winner Contrail.

Heavenly Hill (Hip 6), accounted for the second highest price of the day when sold for $250,000 to Alex Payne, agent for Angela Ingenito, from the consignment of Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent. The multiple graded stakes placed City Zip mare was offered in foal to successful young sire Not This Time.

“The Fasig-Tipton Digital Auction platform continues to pick up steam,” said Leif Aaron, Director of Digital Sales.  “We are selling horses at all levels of the market.  We are still learning what appeals to buyers at certain times of year and what doesn’t– and that’s ok.”

“We look forward to building on our successful 2023 sales as we look ahead to our May Digital Sale,” added Aaron. “Nominations are open.”

In total, 19 horses sold for $938,000, good for an average of $57,900. Two-hundred-fifty users registered to bid on the catalogued offerings.

Results are available online.

The next Fasig-Tipton Digital will be the May Digital Sale, which opens for bidding on Thursday, May 11 and closes Tuesday, May 16. Nominations are now being accepted. Please call Leif Aaron at (859) 255-1555 to nominate or email laaron@fasigtipton.com.
