The first session of the 2018 New York Bred Yearlings sale ended Saturday night with increases in gross and average over the first session last year, and a record for a filly sold at this sale toppled by a daughter of popular first crop sire American Pharoah.

The session topper was Hip 329, a filly from the first crop of Triple Crown hero American Pharoah who set a New York Bred Yearlings sale record price for a filly when sold for $450,000 to Hartley/De Renzo from the consignment of Summerfield, agent for Sunnyfield Farm (video).

“There continues to be significant demand for what are perceived to be the higher quality offerings,” added Browning. “It’s still a selective marketplace and we’re going to see that selectivity continue all year long. I think we’ll continue to see strong demand for most of the horses.”

Overall, 80 New York-bred yearlings changed hands for $8,326,000, up 2.1% from last year’s first session, when 93 yearlings sold for $8,155,000.

Strong Market Continues at The New York Bred Sale

Hip 371, 2017 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga New York Bred Sale
Hip 371 c. City Zip // Fasig-Tipton Photo

The market strength evidenced earlier this week during The Saratoga Sale continued Saturday evening during the first session of The New York Bred Sale, which saw increases in average and median over last year’s sale.

Tonight’s session saw 93 yearlings change hands for a total of $8,155,000 good for an average of $87,688 and a median of $75,000, increases of 13.5% and 25% respectively, over last year’s totals. The RNA rate for the session was down 8.3% from last year’s overall RNA rate.

“We hit the trifecta again tonight from a sales perspective,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “Average was up, median was up, RNA rate was down. I think we saw a continuation of the same trends as we saw in the select sale earlier in the week.”

The top price of the night was a colt by the late City Zip (Hip 371) from the consignment of Indian Creek, which was purchased for $350,000 by Mike Ryan, agent for Kindred Racing (video). That price tag is good for fourth most expensive colt in this sale’s history.

Also selling well was a colt from the third crop of Maclean’s Music (Hip 357), whose first crop includes this year’s Preakness S. (G1) victor Cloud Computing. Offered by Vinery Sales, the colt was purchased for $275,000 by Vineyard Ventures.

A filly from the third crop of Saratoga Sale grad Union Rags (Hip 428) took the lead in the distaff division late in the session when sold for $270,000. Consigned by Hunter Valley Farm, the robust filly was purchased by Robert Masiello.

The top five hips of the session were by five different sires, including the late City Zip, successful young sires Maclean’s Music and Union Rags, popular first-crop yearling sire Cairo Prince, and established sire First Samurai.

Promisingly, the session gross of $8,155,000 eclipsed last year’s single-session half-way point of $6,836,250 by 19.3%.

“We’ve very pleased,” continued Browning. “On a two-night sale, or a multiple day sale, we don’t ever ‘declare victory’ until it’s over, but certainly it’s off to a good start.”

The New York Bred Sale continues August 13 at 6:30 PM.

Session results are available online.
