The St. Leger Yearling Sale appeals to British and Irish purchasers in the main, and this year nine of those offered brought more than 50,000 guineas ($81,813).A half-brother to Never A Doubt, who won the Prix Robert Papin (Fr-II) for Barry Hills in late July, brought the top price of 70,000 guineas ($114,539) from Adrian Nicoll of BBA Ireland.Said Henry Beeby, managing director of Doncaster: "We are absolutely delighted to have returned record-breaking figures, and well and truly bucked the downward trend that has been seen at virtually every other major yearling sale in the Northern Hemisphere this year.
"We said at the start of the week that we would have been supremely confident had there not been so many other negative factors around and that we would be satisfied to match last year's record-breaking figures."
