Sales Auction Highlights
With Tom's 40 year career in the horse racing industry and his years of experience in the sales auction world, Tom brings unique insight into where and when to market our race lilies when they are finished racing. As you can see we have had 6 figure success time and time again and this has given our PGR members a nice dividend to add to their already successful PGR partnership. It's the reason our business model concentrates on well bred fillies because at the end of the day instead of chasing rainbows thinking that a colt will be a stallion prospect, the fillies have a greater percentage of gain as broodmare prospects. That’s the Parting Glass Racing difference!
After having a great year of racing which included 4 wins in 6 starts including a stakes win at Beautiful Belmont Park, Cute Cognac racked up earnings of over $100,000. But that was no where near the end of the story! She rewarded her very happy members with this auction sale and went on to be a very well cared broodmare and is still producing! Cute Cognac sold for $180,000 at Fasig-Tipton February sale.
Averymerrymonet was another success story but for different reasons. I sold her after she went through the ring to a group who have kept her as a broodmare. She has done very well producing for us our current runners, Sanctify and Rectify, both accomplished open company earners of just shy of $200,000 each. The new breeders have had a nice introduction into the breeding business and the racing partnership cashed out very nicely! Happy faces all around! Averymerrymoment sold for $175,000 at Fasig Tipton November sale.
One of our best fillies, turned turf superstar, Wholelottashakin ran second twice to eventual champion and eclipse award winner Dayatthespa. She ran and won for 4 years with her first start at The Spa as a 2yo and then on to amass earnings of over $337,000. To top it all off a real nice sale to some very lucky breeders for $200,000. Wholelotashakin sold for $200,000 at Keeneland November 2014.
Zippity Goomba one of our favorites for many reasons! One being we had so much success with her full sister City Broad (earnings $252,000) but also because this filly was just such a competitor. To top off a stellar career on the track, she won her last race for us and then shipped to Kentucky to be sold in the November sale. And sell she did! Zippity Goomba sold for $210,000 at Keeneland November 2015
