Alpha Kitten Brings $405,000

Grade II winner Alpha Kitten made a mid-afternoon appearance in Keeneland’s auction ring and brought $405,000 during the second session of the January horses of all ages sale in Lexington. B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm purchased the 5-year-old daughter of Tale of the Cat, with Spendthrift general manager Ned Toffey signing the sale ticket Jan. 11.

Alpha Kitten was offered as a racing or broodmare prospect, but she will be retired from competition and bred this year, according to Toffey.

“What’s not to like? She’s a very pretty mare with a lot of ability, and she had plenty of pedigree. She was sort of a no-brainer,” Toffey said. “We had set our number going in and we pretty well stuck to it. We weren’t good for a lot more; we were happy to get her for that. We have a couple of horses in mind (to breed her to), but we’ll make that decision after we get her back to the farm.”
