Gainesway, agent for Normandy Farm, will offer Grade 1 winner and millionaire Daddys Lil Darling at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton November Sale. The 4-year-old filly will be offered as a broodmare prospect.
A daughter of top international sire Scat Daddy, Daddys Lil Darling provided many memorable wins for her owner and breeder, the late Nancy Polk of Normandy Farm. A graded stakes winner at two, three and four, her most significant win came in the Grade 1 American Oaks over Santa Anita's turf course.
A versatile dual-surface threat, Daddys Lil Darling also demonstrated tremendous ability over dirt. She captured the G2 Pocahontas Stakes at two, and also recorded impressive second place performances in the Kentucky Oaks and G1 Ashland Stakes at three.
Over the course of her career, Daddys Lil Darling earned more than $1.3 million and won or placed in 11 graded stakes races, the highest number for any son or daughter of Scat Daddy.
“A top physical to complement her proven Grade 1 ability, Daddys Lil Darling will appeal to all buyers looking for an outstanding young broodmare prospect,” said Michael Hernon, Gainesway's director of sales.
Daddys Lil Darling is a half-sister to three stakes horses, including millionaire Mongolian Saturday, winner of the Breeders Cup Turf Sprint, and multiple stakes winner Victoryasecret. Her dam, Miss Hot Salsa was a stakes winner who also finished second in the G2 San Clemente Handicap.
From a prolific female family, Daddys Lil Darling's first three dams are all graded stakes producers.
Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning added, “Daddys Lil Darling was one of the top fillies in North America each year from two to four, on both turf and dirt. Her pedigree and race record make her highly appealing to buyers from around the world.”
The Fasig-Tipton November Sale will be held on Sunday, Nov. 4, in Lexington, Ky.
