Ninety four harness racing yearlings sold for over $7.3 million resulting in an average price of $78,340 at the first of five 2012 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale sessions held in the Fasig-Tipton Sale Pavilion in Lexington, Kentucky last night (Tuesday October 3).

Swedish buyers Brixton Medical AB of Orsundsbro made the largest purchase of the evening - HIP 91 a Muscle Hill - Emilie Cas El filly named Monarch Kemp. They paid $360,000 for the sibling to Impressive Kemp (1:54.3 - $501,074) and Highscore Kemp (1:51.4 - $111,968).

Other highlights were:

Deepdish, a filly from the first crop of Muscle Hill and out of the multiple stakes-winning mare, Pizza Dolce, was purchased for $320,000 by agent Robert Lidstrom of Boden, Sweden. The filly, who sold as Hip 81, is a half-sister to OSS phenom Miss Paris (1:54.2 - $817,423) and Bella Dolce (1:54.2 - $753,133).

Selling as Hip 43 for $300,000, Rock The Casbah was purchased by agent Mark Harder who reportedly outbid Richard Young on the son of Rocknroll Hanover-Stienams Place. Young owns the colt's full sister, Put On A Show (1:47.4 - $2,383,593).

Mother Night, who sold as Hip 80 for $280,000, was also purchased by agent Mark Harder. The daughter of Cantab Hall is the first foal out of Lunar Dream OM, who is the half-sister to the Hambletonian-winning Victory Dream.

Deyrolle, who sold as Hip 30, was the second highest ticket during the opening night session. Agent Myron Bell signed the $250,000 sales slip for the colt who hails from the first crop of the Hambletonian-winning sire Muscle Hill. He's the third foal out of the Hambletonian Oaks-winning broodmare Danae. That makes him a half-brother to Dorsay (1:54.4 - $99,141).

The sale continues on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. featuring Hips 105 - 263.
