The 2016 Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale was held Monday and Tuesday under suitably wintry conditions. 437 horses were offered over the course of the two days, led by Flashy American, who sold for $395,000 when she went through the ring mid-afternoon during Tuesday’s session.
Flashy American (Hip 426) is a graded stakes winner who won stakes at four different tracks during the course of her career. She sold in foal to Kentucky Derby winner Orb, whose first foals are due this year. Offered by Taylor Made Sales Agency as agent, Flashy American was purchased by Blue Sky Stable. Neil Howard of Gainesway signed the ticket for the seven-year-old daughter of Flashy Bull.
