When the dust settled at the close of the Fasig-Tipton April Digital Sale Tuesday evening, the 15-year-old broodmare Eileen’s Dream (Bernardini, hip 21) held the new record for a single offering on the digital platform when she sold for $660,000 to DJ Stable. Consigned by Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa, Eileen’s Dream sold with her 2024 colt by Curlin at her side. She was bred back to Charlatan Mar. 27.

The sale closed with 87 horses sold for $4,274,300, an average of $49,130. The clearance rate was 92.5% with 670 registered bidders. A total of 20 horses sold for $50,000 or more.

“We had extremely spirited bidding throughout the sale, especially as it closed this afternoon,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton’s Director of Digital Sales. “The clearance rate was over 90% again. We’re very happy with the results for our buyers and sellers.”

Eileen’s Dream has a 2-year-old filly by War Front and a yearling colt by Curlin, who sold for $600,000 at last year’s Keeneland November sale to John Stewart and has since been named Stable Boy. She is also the granddam of 2023 GII Saratoga Special S. winner Rhyme Schemes (Ghostzapper). The Fasig-Tipton Digital topper is a half-sister to MGISW Dream Rush (Wild Rush), dam of Broodmare of the Year Dreaming of Julia (A.P. Indy). The latter has produced dual champion Malathaat (Curlin) and GSW Julia Shining.

“Anytime you have the opportunity to secure a nice-looking mare from this family, you have to seriously consider it,” said DJ Stable’s Jon Green. “She’s got the looks, conformation, female family, broodmare sire, and foal pipeline to be a ‘foundation mare’ for our program. This is a mare that my dad [Leonard Green] particularly wanted. He loves the family and is excited to have a mare and foal like this.”

Prior to Tuesday’s sale, Fasig-Tipton Digital’s previous record was held by the broodmare Amazonian (Malibu Moon), who was purchased for $420,000 by KatieRich Farms from the consignment of Ballysax Bloodstock, agent for the Estate of Glen Todd, during the Glen Todd Dispersal Final Phase in September of 2022. The Fasig-Tipton Digital platform launched in March of 2022.
