Day 4 of the Standardbred Horse Sale in Harrisburg wrapped up with 275 yearlings selling for a gross of $5,092,399 or an average of $18,517. Through four days of the harness racing yearling sales, the average sales price is up 1.4% over last year to $31,161.

Trotters were the strongest segment of the day, with colts bringing an average of $22,192 and fillies an average of $23,428. On the pacing side, colts averaged $16,826 and fillies $12,843.

Trotters overall averaged $22,891 and Sales Manager Murray Brown had some observations of the final day of yearling sales. "Ontario was extremely strong, Pennsylvania's holding its own," he said. "New York-breds slipping a little. For the life of me, I can't understand why the Bettor's Delights are down, because he's a great sire. He's proved it years after year; he's a leading money-winning sire, the sire of two Breeders Crown winners. It just boggles my mind."

The sales resumes today (Day six) Saturday at 10 am with racehorses for sale.
