TAPIT was back on top at this week’s Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October Yearlings Sale when his daughter out of Carolyn’s Cat sold for $600,000 to DJ Stable, topping the second session.
Offered by Blake-Albina Thoroughbred Services, the filly is a full sister to TAPIT’s Grade 3 winner and Grade 2-placed Mufajaah, who has produced multiple winners. A multiple graded stakes winner, Carolyn’s Cat is also the dam of stakes-placed Aunt Kat with five of her nine runners visiting the winner’s circle at least once.
Carolyn’s Cat is a daughter of Grade 3 winner People’s Princess who herself is one of six stakes performers out of multiple graded stakes winner Cassowary. It was the filly’s second time through the ring in the last month and a half after she RNAed for $425,000 at last month’s Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
“We couldn’t be happier with that result,” Hanzly Albina told Thoroughbred Daily News. “We really thought a lot of her. That’s why we didn’t let her go the first time. I think she is a beautiful TAPIT filly with pedigree. The mare has been very generous to us. I think she warranted the $600,000 and we are very happy that she is in good hands. Mr. Green has a great racing operation and it’s good for us because hopefully our mare will get another stakes winner.”
At the end of the sale, the filly came out as the second highest offering at Fasig-Tipton close behind the sale topper.
Attention now shifts to the breeding stock sales with the Fasig-Tipton November Sale held on November 6 with six offerings by TAPIT and one mare in foal to the stallion cataloged for the one-session sale.
