1/2 to Forte’s Dam Tops Fasig-Tipton April Digital Sale

Stakes-placed K P Slickem (Hip 3), a half-sister to the dam of champion and recent GI Florida Derby winner Forte (Violence), sold for $400,000 to Champion Equine to top the April Digital Sale, which closed Tuesday afternoon.

Offered in foal to MGISW Raging Bull (Fr) by Mulholland Farm, agent, K P Slickem 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 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, an average of $57,900. Two-hundred-fifty users registered to bid on the catalogued offerings.

Full results are available online.

The next Fasig-Tipton Digital will be the May Digital Sale, which opens for bidding May 11 and closes May 16.
