$400,000 Cairo Prince filly wraps terrific week at Keeneland sale

Cairo Prince had another fantastic day as the Keeneland September Yearling sale wrapped up the first week of the prestigious auction on Sunday, led by a $400,000 filly and a total of four lots selling for at least $200,000.

Thorough the first six sessions, Cairo Prince’s $900,000 colt was the top price paid for any lot by a first-crop sire. His average of $198,414 also led all freshman sires with more than 40 individuals sold.

Sunday’s $400,000 filly, hip No. 1680, was consigned by Airdrie and went to Cheyenne Stables. The filly’s dam Incarnate Memories is a sister to Grade 2 winner Hello Liberty and stakes winner Pious Ashley.

Cairo Prince’s top colt on Sunday was hip No. 1633, consigned by Ashview Farm. The winning bidder, at $320,000, was Centennial Farms. The colt’s dam, Feline Flatline, is the dam of Flat Out’s first winner and is a half-sister to Del Mar Oaks (G1) winner Sharla Rae.

Cairo Prince has 15 individuals in the remainder of the sale, which runs through Sept. 23.
