Record figures were achieved from 115 lots at the Gold Crown Yearling Sale at Bathurst last weekend.

Sale organiser Graeme Board said it was the best sale he has been involved with.

"I've been doing the sale at Bathurst for nearly 20 years and this is by far the best I have seen," said Board.

"Everyone wanted to be a part of the action and the results are great for the future of harness racing."

Yearling colt sales hit an average price of $9,000 while the fillies were close to the $7,000 mark.

The sale turned over just shy of $1 million, a significant increase on 2013. The top price lot was a for Sportswriter-Sixteen Carat colt purchased by Emilio Rosati for $34,000, while Pat Bourke purchased a Courage Under Fire-Lombo Silhouette colt for $27,000.

Bred by Laurie and Gwen Paton, the sale-topping colt is out of the 1:55.5 Menangle winner Sixteen Carat, a Blissfull Hall mare.

Rosati also shelled $27,000 for the Rocknroll Hanover-Counterfeit Chic colt and $25,000 for the American Ideal-Superstar Lady filly, the top-priced filly at the sale.

Other lots to fetch $20,000 or more were the Courage Under Fire-Pleasure Machine colt at $21,500 and the Rock N Roll Heaven-So Savvy colt and the Art Colony-Jillette colt both at $20,000.
