Fort Christopher's Thoroughbreds Agent, LLC was proud to announce Sunday that they sold the overall sales topper, a weanling by Kafwain for $ 60,000. The highest price at the New York Breeders' Sale Co.'s fall mixed sale at Saratoga Race Course. The filly is the second foal out of the unraced Birdonthewire mare Birthday Wire, a half sister to Grade 3-placed stakes winners Nice to Know and Cheers and Tears, and to Sommerfest, dam of multiple graded stakes-placed stakes winner Beautiful Bets. " We decided to sell this filly at the NYBSCO. sale as opposed to sell in Kentucky simply because we felt she would be the standout individual in the select portion of the sale. We advised our client of our plan and thankfully they had the confidence in our decision to go through with it," said Fort Christopher's Thoroughbreds, LLC owner Christopher M. Shelli. "I was excited for everyone involved when Dean Purdom signed the ticket for the filly for $ 60,000."
