Maximus Aurelius ThoroStride

Maximus Aurelius, a 3-year-old colt by Tapit out of champion Close Hatches, sold for $40,000 to Pewter Stable to top Tuesday's Keeneland August Digital Sale, held as part of Keeneland's Digital Sales Ring platform. Consigned by Juddmonte as a racing or stallion prospect, Maximus Aurelius is a full-brother to multiple graded stakes winner Tacitus.

Captain Ginny B, a 4-year-old filly by Uncle Mo, brought the sale's second-highest price of $12,000 from JBS Stable. Consigned by Winchester Equine, agent for Michael Scardina, Captain Ginny B is out of the stakes-winning Big Brown mare Red Sashay and from the family of such graded stakes winners as Halory Hunter and Van Nistelrooy. She was offered as a racing or broodmare prospect.
