After a tentative start on Wednesday, clearance strengthened throughout the sale to settle at 76% today with 437 individuals sold over the three days for total receipts of $20,679,500 and an average price of $47,363. The median price remained steady at $40,000, a 16% drop however on last year’s median price of $47,500.
“Our flat domestic racing industry has had a disappointing effect on the Select Sale and the negative impact it is having is even more evident when looking at the Premier and Select sessions from this week combined.”
