Super Sale Down On 2018

Mayfair Speculators contributed to spike in 2018

The nine-time winning stakes placed Jay Peg gelding Royal Armour topped the 2019 Super Sale held at Greyville on Thursday afternoon.

The 6yo was sold to dissolve a partnership and was signed for by Equine Admin for R200 000.

Gold Circle CEO Michel Nairac, a traditional exporter to Mauritius, was the top buyer – his five purchases totalling R395 000.

With the Mayfair Speculators liquidation and sales by Rainbow Breach Trading accounting for over R12 million turnover at the 2018 sale, year on year comparisons naturally showed a steep decline in the sale aggregate (91 lots sold for R14 145 000 in 2018) to the R1 849  000 achieved for the  55 lots sold on Thursday.

The average in 2017 was R81 167, with an aggregate of R2 922 000.

Given the extraordinary circumstances prevailing, last year’s average of R155 400, with a highest price of R2,2 million, towered over the R33 618 average for 2019.
