Day two of the 2010 Harrisburg Yearling Sale has come to a close, with a total of 268 horses going through the ring. The first two days of bidding has racked up $22,923,700 in purchases
for an average sale price of $44,426. The opening day average was $52,157.
College Major was the highest priced yearling to go through the ring during Tuesday's session. The son of Art Major, who went through the ring as Hip #482, sold for $145,000. The colt was sold by Preferred Equine for Ontario's Stan Klemencic & 30 Plus Stable. Jeff Gillis was the successful bidder.
He is the first colt out of the O.S.S. graduate Armbro Wallflower, who already produced a trio of fillies including the Rocknroll Hanover miss, Its Only Rocknroll (1:52.2 - $64,953).
Aerodonato Hanover, who sold as Hip #498, was the sale topper among the trotters during Tuesday’s second session. The son of Donato Hanover-Aurora Hanover sold for $135,000. The trotter was sold by Hanover Shoe Farms and Fashion Farms was the successful bidder.
The colt is the second foal out of a sister to the international trotting star, Algiers Hall (1:53.2 - $1,275,000). That son of Conway Hall banked more than $740,000 in North America before beefing up his bankroll overseas thanks in part to wins in such events as the Gala Internazionale Del Trotto in Rome and the Gram Premio Continentale.
The auction runs through Saturday, November 13 at Harrisburg's Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex Sales Arena. Over 2,200 horses ranging from yearlings and weanlings to racehorses and broodmares, stallions and stallion shares will hit the auction block.
