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.
