The aggregate for the one-day event was €4,221,500, up 22% from the previous year.

Day 2 August Yearling Sale: Dubawi colt a €1.55 million showstopper for Kerri Radcliffe
20 August 2017

 A seven-figure son of top stallion Dubawi dominated the second day of trading at the August Yearling Sale, the final of the catalogue’s Part I before Part II unfolds on Monday. The vagaries of alphabetical order had resulted in the catalogue proving stronger on the opening session as opposed to a year ago, thus making for contrasted daily comparisons – the average price was up 38% on day 1 and down 11% on day 2. Referring to cumulated figures over the first two nights offer a more accurate analysis.

With a slightly more condensed catalogue, 122 yearlings sold out of the 160 offered through Part I, achieving a 76% clearance rate (80% in 2016). The average price reached a whopping €240,008, up 12% from last year, while the cumulated aggregate slipped 2.9% at €29,486,000, with 17 less horses sold.

Mayfair Speculators dominate day 1 of August Yearling Sale
19 August 2017

 The names of Mayfair Speculators, Galileo and Ecurie des Monceaux were all over the score sheet on the opening day of the ARQANA August Yearling Sale as a trio of youngsters by the perennial champion sire and offered by the famed Normandy nursery registered the three highest prices of the evening when selling to the South African operation.

Over the first of two evenings forming Part I of the catalogue, 67 yearlings sold – a clearance rate of 82% - for a cumulated €17,302,000 and an impressive average price of €258,239. These figures are way clear of their 2016 counterparts, however it must be reminded that Part I of the catalogue extends alphabetically across the first two nights hence year-on-year comparisons can only safely be done at the end of day 2.
