SAf 2YO Sale Average Up 19%

Wednesday, 15th August 2012

Meanwhile, the Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale in South Africa has concluded with a 19.2% increase in the average over 2011. The R70,000 sale average was achieved with 100 less horses sold, but the R20,200,000 aggregate was only marginally below 2011's R21,510,000. Included among the large group of new buyers were owners from Zimbabwe and Kenya. This year's sale-topper, a filly by US sire Tapit, went for R650,000 to Cape trainer Joey Ramsden. Underlining the strength of the buying bench was the sale of 2 individual colts for R500,000, by Dynasty & Silvano. That compares well to 2011's top price of R350,000.
