Spotlight Shines on Ghostzapper at Fasig-Tipton November

11.05.2018 -

Ghostzapper was represented by a $300,000 weanling and a pair of high-priced broodmares at the annual Fasig-Tipton November sale.

Brookstone Farm held off all challengers to make the winning $300,000 bid on a Hip #106a sharp-looking Ghostzapper colt. The weanling is out the Stakes-placed mare Liza Too, a half-sister to one of Ghostzapper's recent stars, the multiple Grade 1 winner and Eclipse Award finalist Paulassilverlining. 

As the damsire of Triple Crown hero Justify and two other Grade 1 winners from a small number of starters, daughters of Ghostzapper are in high demand. So it was no surprise to see two other recent Ghostzapper stars change hands for big prices on Sunday night.

Grade 2 winner Faypien (Hip #240), who also placed in the Grade 1 Test S. at Saratoga en route to amassing a $444,775 bankroll, sold to Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings for $875,000.

Earlier in the evening, 2018 Graded Stakes winner Champagne Problems (Hip #172) was purchased as a racing/broodmare prospect by Stroud Coleman Bloodstock for $950,000. Winner of the Groupie Doll S. (G3) in August, the 4-year-old also ran a strong second to Blue Prize in the historic Spinster S. (G1) at Keeneland. She hails from a deep Bridledwood Farm family that includes the Grade 1 winners Southern Image, Turbo Compressor and Jolie's Halo.
