Flash Sale a 'Sweet' Success for Fox Hill

Sweet Tea (Into Mischief–Ava Pie, by Distorted Humor), the sole offering from Fasig-Tipton Digital's Fox Hill Flash Sale, was purchased for $320,000 by Vicente Perez. The 4-year-old filly, a maiden winner in four starts for Fox Hill and Larry Jones, was consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent for the late Rick Porter's operation.

Sweet Tea, a $300,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase in 2019, is a full-sister to two-time stakes winner and multiple graded-placed Sound Machine and is also a half-sister to SW & GSP Forever Liesl (Mineshaft). The filly's dual Grade III-winning second dam Lakenheath (Colonial Affair) is responsible for SW/MGSP The Truth or Else (Yes It's True), GSW Decorated Soldier (Proud Citizen) and the SP Fighter Wing (Empire Maker), whose daughter Glass Ceiling (Constitution) won this year's GIII Barbara Fritchie S. and is entered for Saturday's GIII Distaff S. at Aqueduct.

Sweet Tea is bred on the exact same cross as Into Mischief's Grade I winners Life Is Good and Practical Joke and on the cross over Forty Niner-line dams that is responsible for the likes of MGISW Goldencents.

“The Fox Hill Flash Sale was a tremendous success, demonstrating the strength and versatility of Fasig-Tipton Digital,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton Director of Digital Sales. “It was a win for all parties, as the purchaser–who actually bred the filly–is thrilled to have Sweet Tea back in his broodmare band.  We are very appreciative of longtime Fasig-Tipton supporter Fox Hill Farm entrusting the sale of such a quality filly with our new digital platform.”

Ten unique bidders battled for the popular broodmare prospect, with more than 150 bids placed during the 50-hour bidding window.

The next Fasig-Tipton Digital Sale is slated for Apr. 21-26. Nominations for that auction are open through Apr. 14.
