LEXINGTON, Ky.--Fasig-Tipton's single session selected breeding stock auction on Sunday, Nov. 6, for the second consecutive year, grossed more than $100,000,000.
Thirty-one horses sold for $1,000,000 or more over the course of the single session, including 10 which sold for $2,000,000 or more.
Eclipse Champion Gamine (Hip 289), offered carrying her first foal by Quality Road, topped the sale when sold for $7,000,000 to Coolmore’s M.V. Magnier from the consignment of Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa, agent.
A 5-year-old daughter of three-time Leading Sire Into Mischief, Gamine set records on and off the track.
In May of 2019, Gamine set a then-record for most expensive 2-year-old Thoroughbred sold at public auction in the state of Maryland when sold for $1,800,000 at the Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training sale.
Eighteen months later, she blazed a new track record in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, covering 7 furlongs in 1:20.20 to defeat older fillies and mares by 6 ¼ lengths as she pleased.
A nine-time winner in 11 career starts, Gamine scored seven times in graded stakes company, including in addition to her Breeders’ Cup victory: an 18 ¾-length victory in the G1 Acorn Stakes in her stakes debut at 3; a 7-length win in the G1 Test Stakes; and victories in the G1 Derby City Distaff Stakes and G1 Ballerina Handicap last year at 4.
She earned $1,771,500 on the track for owner Michael Lund Petersen and was named Eclipse Champion Female Sprinter at 3 in 2020.
