Barretts 2YO Sale Average Soars 33%
Meanwhile in US sales news, the Barretts March Sale of Selected 2YOs traded up dramatically from 2012, with buyers pushing the gross to US$8,718,000 from 60 2YOs sold for an average price of US$145,300. The 32.73 percent increase shocked the sales company with general manager Kim Lloyd acknowledging that while he had thought a 20 percent increase was achievable, the big increases were unexpected. Coolmore took home the top 2 lots, spending US$675,000 for a Malibu Moon colt & $575,000 for a Dunkirk colt. On a concerning note, less than 50% of the horses catalogued actually sold.
