Doncaster Mixed Final Average Up 10.3%

Friday, 23rd October 2009

Overall at Doncaster, 264 lots sold for a total £1,481,300 (A$2.666m) which was up 23.4% on last year’s final figure. The final average of £5,611 (A$10,100) was up 10.3% & the final median of £2,700 (A$4,900) was up 18.5%. Doncaster managing director Henry Beeby commented: “A British or Irish Sale that has recorded improved figures has been something of a rarity recently, so it is with a great deal of satisfaction that we have returned increases over the last 3 days & in particular with our 2-day Horses-In-Training Sale. That said, we certainly recognise it has been challenging at all levels of the market on all 3 days & the industry has a long way to go to return to the market that existed before the financial crisis, which affected us all so quickly & dramatically last year. However bloodstock trades on confidence & there have been plenty of positives in recent months & days that should allow us to view the future with a degree of pragmatic & realistic confidence.”
