|KZN Yearling Results In|
The KZN Yearling Sale results are in, and congratulations must go to the Scott Brothers of Highdown Stud, for having the first two Top Sires on the list. Miesque’s Approval topped the log, with Mogok and Muhtafal of Summerhill Stud following suit.
Boland were the top vendors with 12 Lots, an aggregate of R960 000, and an average of R80 000. This was a notable achievement, considering their yearlings were injured in an unfortunate incident in the truck on the way up from the Cape to the sales, with one of the yearlings becoming fractious on board and setting the rest of them off.
Scott Bros followed, being the top vendors representing KZN sold 17 lots with an aggregate of R615 000, followed by Hadlow Stud, with 14 lots and R452 000 aggregate, and Yellow Star Stud with 14 lots at an aggregate of R452 000.
VIP Thoroughbreds (Dubai) were the top buyers, with 4 lots at an average of R125 000 each. Their most expensive purchase was an eyecatching grey colt called Luxardo (Pictured) by Mogok, from Backworth Stud for R200 000.
The overall stats for the 2011 sale were 247 catalogued, 171 yearlings sold, 15 withdrawn, 61 not sold.
An aggregate of R7 802 000 was achieved, with the average yearling sold for R45 626. The highest priced yearling colt named Lockup And Go, Hip no 128, reached R310 000 from the Daytona Stud by Right Approach, and released by Jonsson Holdings. Interesting to note that this year’s sale had a highest priced yearling sold, compared to last year, and a higher average overall then last year’s sale.
The two top priced yearlings from KZN were hip number 70, an imported Australian unnamed filly (09Harem Queen) by Orotorio (Pictured) represented by Burwell Stud, and released by Greg Ennion Racing for R280 000. The next was from Backworth Stud, an impressive grey colt named Luxardo by Mogok (Pictured), hip no 222, and purchased by VIP Thoroughbreds (Dubai) for R200 000.
The next sale taking place will be on the 5 July at Yellow Star Stud, a mixed sale of broodmares, weanlings, and horses in training. Please see our Sales Calendar page for the full catalogue available.
