Lady Hollywood with Alice Hayes – the filly is auctioned at Fasig-Tipton

The Breeders’ Cup weekend is capped off with the Fasig-Tipton November Sale on Sunday, just across the street from the town of Lexington from where the champions will have been crowned.

Even a quick roundup of starters – 299 were initially listed, before supplements expanded to 320 – reveals a number of big names, with Bellafina, Campanelle, Gamine, Going Global, Lady Hollywood, Pizza Bianca , Secret Oath and Shedaresthedevil among those due for sale.

Shedaresthedevil was one of the stars of the 2021 edition of the sale, leading racing and broodmare prospects on offer at $5,000,000 at Whisper Hill Farm, Flurry Racing and Qatar Racing.

Kentucky Oaks winner Secret Oath, meanwhile, could give themselves a monumental late update as they prepare to contest the Breeders’ Cup distaff on the eve of the auction.

The same goes for Blue Stripe, winner of the Clement L Hirsch Stakes, and Awake At Midnyte, the intelligent Nyquist filly of Doug O’Neill and Paul Reddam, who both have the opportunity to go under the hammer.

Lady Hollywood, trained by Alice Haynes, has already been in action at Keeneland, finishing just fifth behind Mischief Magic in Friday’s Juvenile Turf Sprint.

The daughter of Havana Gray was nabbed by Robson Aguiar for €25,000 at the Sportif Goffs Sale before joining the Amo Racing umbrella and winning Listed and Group 3 prizes.

Billed as the “Night of the Stars”, last year’s auction set a new overall record, with sales totaling over $100,000,000 in a single session for the first time in the history of the event, including 26 fillies and mares that sold for $1,000,000 or more.

Grade 1 producer Magical World, who was in foal to several top bulls Into Mischief, topped the 2021 auction when he was sold for $5,200,000 at Whisper Hill Farm and Three Chimneys Farm.

The likes of Gamine, a decorated former Filly & Mare Sprint winner who traded for seven figures at the Midlantic sale before racing and being offered full of Quality Road by Hill ‘n’ Dale, has clear potential to make some waves.

Another Kentucky Oaks winner, Cathryn Sophia, has already traded for $2,300,000 and returns in foal to the hot Gun Runner, while Fastnet Rock filly Pizza Bianca has been the standard bearer for her famous owner-breeder. Bobby Flay beating Malavath last year Gazon juvenile fillies.

“Fasig-Tipton’s November sale offers the highest concentration of quality breeding stock in the world each year, and this year’s catalog more than lives up to that billing,” said Fasig-Tipton President, Boyd Browning, when the catalog was published.

“We have 56 Graded Stakes winners or producers listed, 23 of which are Grade 1. These include Eclipse Champions, International Champions, Breeders’ Cup winners, a double Royal Ascot winner and three Kentucky Oaks.”

The action begins with 180 weaned mares selected – the largest group of weaned mares offered in recent sale history – before moving on to races/broodmares and broodmares as night falls. The sale is due to start at 1 p.m. local time.

“This catalog is as deep in quality as it is internationally diverse,” Browning added. “Nearly 70% of racing and broodmare offerings are either a black-type winner or the dam of a black-type winner, providing buying opportunities at varying price points.”

The catalog can be consulted on linewhile oOnline and telephone auctions are available.
