Flash Sale 'Sweet' for Fox Hill Farm
The Fox Hill Flash Sale - Fasig-Tipton Digital's first "flash sale" - closed at 2 PM Friday after just over two days of open bidding. The sole offering, four-year-old broodmare prospect Sweet Tea (Into Mischief), sold for $320,000 to Vicente Perez. The filly was consigned as Hip 1 by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent for Fox Hill Farm.
Sweet Tea, by Leading Sire Into Mischief, was a $300,000 yearling purchase by Rick Porter's Fox Hill Farm. The filly broke her maiden second time out in an $84,000 Maiden Special Weight at Oaklawn Park. Dam Ava Pie (Distorted Humor) has also produced graded stakes placed stakes winners Forever Liesel (Mineshaft) and Sound Machine (Into Mischief). Sweet Tea's second dam is multiple graded stakes winner Lakenheath, who produced SW/G1P The Truth or Else; MSW/G3P Decorated Soldier; and W/SP Fighter Wing, who in turn produced this year's Barbara Fritchie S. (G3) winner Glass Ceiling.
“The Fox Hill Flash Sale was a tremendous success, demonstrating the strength and versatility of Fasig-Tipton Digital,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton Director of Digital Sales. “It was a win for all parties, as the purchaser – who actually bred the filly – is thrilled to have Sweet Tea back in his broodmare band. We are very appreciative of longtime Fasig-Tipton supporter Fox Hill Farm entrusting the sale of such a quality filly with our new digital platform.”
Ten (10) unique bidders battled for the popular broodmare prospect, with more than 150 bids placed during the 50-hour bidding window.
The next Fasig-Tipton Digital sale will be held April 21-26. Nominations are open through April 14.
