The first yearling sale in done and dusted and overall the Melbourne APG Yearling sale was a success.
Both the clearance rate and average increased, with the average climbing 12.5% to $28,537.
The real encouraging statistic was the fillies average increasing by just over 20% to $23,892.
Thanks very much to all those who inspected and bid on an Alabar yearling.
Below is a video of the highest priced Alabar sired yearling - an absolutely stunning Art Major colt out of Pembrook Caesar offered for sale by Capital Hill Farms.
The colt was purchased by Trevor Casey for $110,000 and will head to Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen.
