Harness racing buyers at this years All Aged sale in Canterbury held the upper hand right from the opening lot.

Most of the broodmares for sale had foals at foot by such well-established sires such as Badlands Hanover and McArdle but most failed to even make four figures.

Lockerup, the aged dam of champion trotter Sovereignty $678,321 made $5,000 in foal to Monarchy but most struggled to attract interest.

Good examples of that lack of interest would be mares such as:

Keepalert - A Life Sign half sister to Mach Alert $394,945 with a Changeover filly at foot made a paltry $400

High Tops Hanover - A mare by Western Hanover from a Big Towner half sister to Holmes Hanover with a filly by Tintin in America at foot fetched just $700

Cullen Katching - A striking young  mare by Christian Cullen from a Western Hanover half sister to seven winners including Pacific Flight 1:51 $562,345 and The Unicorn 1:56.7 $488,524, who was not in foal sold for a touch more at $1100.

The weanlings were much more in demand. Top price went to the stunning McArdle colt from the 13 win mare Lady Toddy who is already the dam of four in 1;58. He fetched healthy $15,500 which in the context of the sale was a great result for the vendors, Nevele R Stud.

Other weanlings to attract interest included

*Changeover / Last Port Of Call  colt--$8100

*Monarchy / Lockerup  colt--$6400

* Vintage Master / Joyful Holmes  colt $6200

*Vintage Master / Supreme Classie  colt $4600

*Dali / Tammy Franco  colt $4500
