Forbidden Kingdom | Benoit

With 75 horses sold, Fasig-Tipton's May Digital Sale closed Tuesday evening with a $310,000 topper and a gross of $3,252,100. Topping the sale was 5-year-old Forbidden Kingdom (American Pharoah) (hip 21), a MGSW & GISP consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent for MyRacehorse and Spendthrift Farm, who sold as a racing or stallion prospect to Legacy Ranch.

The 75 sales horses averaged $43,361 with a clearance rate of 75% and registered bidders numbering 689. Full results for the sale, which featured 2-year-olds, horses of racing age, breeding stock, and yearlings can be seen here.

“It was another strong sale across the board,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton's Director of Digital Sales. “Compared to last year's May sale, we doubled the number offered, more than doubled the gross, and saw a healthy rise in the average price. I'm very pleased with the results.”

Filling out the top three sellers were Such Sounds (Cairo Prince) (hip 6), bred to Constitution for 2025 for her first foal and sold for $250,000 to Machmer Hall from the consignment of River Oak Farm, agent for Forever Spring Farm et al; and Man Among Men (War Front) (hip 29), a May 5 Santa Anita allowance winner sold as a racing/stallion prospect for $220,000 to Howell Wynne from the consignment of Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent for MyRacehorse and Spendthrift Farm.
