Next best price was #101, a Mauritzfontein bred Flower Alley colt, who sold for R450 000. He is a half-brother to three good winners out of a stakes winning half-sister to Oaks winner, Sweetie Pie and was purchased by Team G Racing.
Multiple Gr1 and Kentucky Derby winner producing Flower Alley was the leading sire on aggregate, with his 7 lots selling for R1 495 000 at an average of R212 857.
