Gainesway Sales, as agent, had three of the top 10 selling yearlings at Monday's Fasig-Tipton July Sale in central Kentucky, and had eight of their nine offerings meet reserve for a gross total of $1,545,000.
Gainesway was the top grossing seller despite having equal or fewer horses offered than any of the top 4 consignors. Gainesway also had the top average ($193,125) and median ($137,500) for all consignors who sold 4 or more horses.
Leading the way was hip No. 191, who went to Mandy Pope's Whisper Hill Farm for $420,000, the second best price of the auction. The chestnut colt is out of the stakes-winning Affirmed mare Affirmed Dancer, who has produced five starters, all winners, including Grade 3 winner La Gran Bailadora, as well as the stakes-placed duo Fun in D' Sun and Affirmed Cat.
Right on the Bellamy Road colt's heels was Tapit colt, with a winning bid of $375,000, the third-best hammer price of the sale.
Hip No. 151, a bay Kentucky bred, went to the Wounded Warrior group. The colt is out of Sunny Morning, who has a 3-year-old full brother to the sale horse named Mudflats. Sunny Morning is a half-sister to the stakes winner Langston.
The sixth highest price was $260,000 paid for another colt, hip No. 19 by Pioneerof the Nile. The winning bid was placed by Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings, LLC. The colt is out of the Silver Deputy mare Honolulu Heat, who is a half-sister to the Canadian stakes winners Northface and Honolulu Gold. The family includes champion dual classic winner and Gainesway stallion Afleet Alex.
