Six-figure Sky Kingdom filly at OBS March sale

A filly from the first crop of Darby Dan stallion Sky Kingdom brought a winning bid of $110,000, 22 times his 2019 stud fee, during Wednesday’s closing session of the March 12-13 OBS 2-year-olds in Training Sale.

Offered by Golden Rock Thoroughbreds and cataloged as hip No. 572, the bay filly was purchased by Sallusto and Albina, agent. She had worked an eighth-mile in a swift 10 seconds flat during last week’s Under Tack Show.

The filly is out of the Montbrook mare Willie Brook and is a half-sister to seven winners and is from the same family as What A Pleasure, sire of Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Foolish Pleasure.

Sky Kingdom, a multiple graded stakes winner and track record-setter, is standing this year at Darby Dan Farm for $5,000, stands and nurses.
