2013 Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale Prices • 4, 5 July 2013
When it works, it works. Through the roof, and all records shattered – that’s the result of the Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale, with its Million Rand race incentive.
The overall average was up 30% on last year, when the KZN sale had recovered from having been in the doldrums in years before.
The 2013 average of 90k challenges the 2013 Book Two sale’s 107k. The median price increases were remarkable: up 20% overall, with colts +25% and fillies +22%.
In 2012 just eight yearlings fetched 200k or more, this year here were 27 (to give some perspective, 228 yearlings found buyers this year, vs. 189 last year) .
Top price was 650k, for Daytona’s Silvano colt, who is full brother in blood to July-winner Bold Silvano (their dams are full sisters).
Jet Master took the second slot, with 500k for a Boland Stud consigned filly from the potent Soho Secret family. The sires and buyers of the lots sold for 200k or more make for interesting reading – see the box & sale prices
