Our Khrysty

Ghostzapper - Memories Of Gold

Bernardini - La Grande Mamma

Darby Dan Farm capped an exceptional weekend for the program, selling the young mare Our Khrysty at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November Sale on Sunday evening for $600,000.

Our Khrysty sold just two days after the Breeders’ Cup victory by Perfect Shirl, who was foaled and raised at Darby Dan.

In foal to Champion Sire Tiznow, and carrying her first foal, a 3/4-sibling to record-breaking Grade 1 winner Bullsbay, the 5-year-old granddaughter of Storm Cat was sold to Blue Heaven Farm.

A New York Graded stakes winner of over $300,000, Our Khrysty won or placed in nine stakes in three seasons of racing. Her dam has already produced three stakes winners, $900,000 earner Bullsbay and juvenile stakes winner Hidden Expression.

Darby Dan also sold a Bernardini weanling at Fasig-Tipton for $280,000. Out of the Canadian two-year-old stakes winner La Grande Mamma, the registered New York bred colt was owned by Ends Well Farm, and sold to M.W. Miller, agent.

Darby Dan posted an outstanding average of $440,000, one of the highest of the venue.
