Record $820K for Canadian Champion Cairo Consort at Fasig-Tipton June Digital

Cairo Consort | Coglianese

Canada's 2022 champion 2-year-old filly Cairo Consort (Cairo Prince), winner of the GIII Sweetest Chant S. in 2023 who also placed in both the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf and GI Natalma S. in 2022, sold for $820,000 to Town and Country Racing at Fasig-Tipton's June Digital Sale, which closed Tuesday evening. The price marked a Digital Sale record. Sold as Hip 26, Cairo Consort was consigned by Highgate Sales, agent.

The June Digital Sale closed with 60 horses sold for a gross of $2,247,200 and an average of $37,453. Full results for the sale, which featured 2-year-olds, horses of racing age, breeding stock, and yearlings, are available at Fasig-Tipton.

“We are very excited about the results for racehorses, topped by graded stakes winner and multiple Grade I performer Cairo Consort,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton's Director of Digital Sales. “It's gratifying to get such a positive result on such a nice filly, for the sellers and the buyer. We learned it's a bit more difficult to sell broodmares this late in the spring, but the action on the racehorses and yearlings offered was consistent with previous sales. We're very pleased with those results.”

Other top sellers Tuesday included Bluewater Sales-consigned Snow Princess (Quality Road, Hip 1), offered in foal to Taiba for 2025, for $145,000 to Charlie Allen, agent for CAG LLC; and Nasty Habit (Violence, Hip 23), a racing/stallion prospect who went to Steven Young, agent, for $120,000 from the consignment of Farrior Racing.

Fasig-Tipton's next digital sale will be the July Digital Sale, which opens for bidding on Thursday, July 18, and closes Tuesday, July 23. Nominations are now being accepted through July 10.
