Gainesway Sells Trio of Seven Figure Mares At Fasig-Tipton November

Gainesway sent just three mares through the ring at Tuesday’s Fasig-Tipton Sale but all three lit up the ring when bringing no less than $2.2 million, led by Finite.

A multiple graded stakes winner, OXO Equine’s Larry Best admitted to Blood-Horse that he fell in love with the Munnings mare and couldn’t leave without her. The seven-figure price tag also saw her happy former connections salute her with a cheer of “Thank you Finite” after the ticket was signed.

Spendthrift Farm was the winning bidder on Grade 1 winner Perfect Alibi when buying the mare for $2 million.  Also second in the Darley Alcibiades (G1) during her 2-year-old season, Perfect Alibi is carrying her first foal by Into Mischief and was the eighth most expensive in-foal mare of the sale.

Grade 1 winner Simply Ravishing rounded out the mares with a price tag of $1.7 million when purchased by Katsumi Yoshida. The winner of both the Darley Alcibiades Stakes (G1) on dirt and the P.G. Johnson Stakes on turf, she was the most expensive New York-bred of the sale.

The lone weanling of the Gainesway consignment was the $210,000 Gun Runner colt out of This Cat Can Dance. A half-brother to AFLEET ALEX’s Grade 2-placed Dream Dance, the colt was purchased by Stonehaven Steadings.
