Hollywood Wildcat's Daughter Brings $310k

Favorite Gal, a Hard Spun filly out of champion Hollywood Wildcat, brought $310,000 early during the second session of the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall yearling sale Oct. 26 in Lexington. The price was the highest so far for the auction.


Lewis Lakin of Lakland Farm signed the sale ticket for the chestnut yearling, who is a member of her sire’s first crop. Taylor Made Sales Agency consigned Favorite Gal for her breeder, Irving Cowan, who is dispersing his horses.


“She looks just like the kind I like,” said Lakin, who was sitting in the sale pavilion with Florida horsewoman Becky Thomas. “She has a great family. I don’t think you can replace it for that kind of money anywhere. You don’t often get a chance to do something like this in a situation like this, so I just couldn’t turn it down. I’m in the business to breed, and you look for broodmares like this. It’s almost impossible to get this kind.”


Lakin will send Favorite Gal to Thomas to be prepared for racing.
