The opening session of the 2010 Harrisburg Yearling Sale is officially in the books, with a total of 248 horses going under the hammers of the various auctioneers. A total of $12,935,000 was spent by owners looking for the
next superstar, and that translated into a first-day average of $52,157.
Topping the first session of the auction was Hip #252 Dream On Hanover – an Andover Hall filly out of the great producing mare D Train. Staffan Lind of Middletown, NY signed the sale slip on the $260,000 youngster who was part of the Hanover Shoe Farms Inc. consignment.
The filly is a full sister to Hambletonian winner Donato Hanover (1:50.1 - $2,352,190) and a half-sister to Here Comes Herbie (1:52 - $379,616).
In 2009, a total of 272 yearlings stepped into the sales ring on opening day grossing $13,989,500 with an average of $51,432.
