Lexington, KY --- The Lexington Selected Yearling Sale concluded its highly successful sale on Saturday, with a final tally of 687 horses selling over the five sessions for a gross of $27,382,000, averaging $39,857. The average price was the highest for the sale since 2008 and represented an increase of 12.5 percent over the average price in 2012. On opening night, the Cantab Hall colt Custom Fit sold for $475,000, the highest price in the nine-year history of the Lexington Selected Sale.

Saturday’s session trailed in average price the amount on the final day a year ago, as 111 yearlings sold for an average of $11,694, a decline of about seven percent. The sale topper at $50,000 was the Groton Hall colt Cinnabar Hall. Out of Charm’s Chip, he is a half-brother to Chaplain Hall and Chancey Hall, both with career earnings exceeding $250,000. John Como Jr. was the buyer of this Walnut Hall Ltd.-bred yearling.

Second on the leaderboard at $40,000 was the Muscle Hill colt Southwind Paco, actually making his second appearance, since he was a resale from the previous night. Dam Southwind Prelude is a full sister to Malabar Maple ($483,107) and a half-sister to three other winners of more than $100,000. Bobby Brower bought this colt that was consigned by Preferred Equine Marketing, Inc as agent for Southwind Farm.

The next two highest priced yearlings Saturday were Walnut Hall Ltd-bred pacing colts by the farm’s stallion Third Straight. Teahouse Hall sold for $33,000 to Bruce Riegle. The colt is the first foal of Tearose Hall, a full sister to Pleasure Chest a winner of $601,854, and Mind Boggling, with career earnings of $505,553. Corsica Hall, who sold for $30,000, is a half-brother to four winners of at least $100,000, including Camelot Hall ($856,639) and Castanet Hall. Bill Elliott was the winning bidder.

Groton Hall, Third Straight, and Cambest, the sire of the fifth-highest priced yearling for the night, all stand at Walnut Hall Ltd. Savvy buyers were aware of the very limited number of Kentucky-sired yearlings selling at auction that are eligible for the lucrative Kentucky Sires Stakes.
