A colt from the first crop of Crown Attorney brought the top price of $110,000 (Canadian funds, $70,653 in U.S. funds) Saturday night during the second and final open session of the Canadian-bred yearling sale at Woodbine. Consigned by Janet Motz, the colt was purchased by R. Hogan, agent for Molinaro Stable. Produced from the 16-year-old winning Brave Shot mare Braverelle, the colt is a half-brother to stakes-placed runners Forever Grand (by War Deputy) and Bound to Astound (by L'Enjoleur). Forever Grand finished third in the Queen's Plate.
In all, 78 horses were sold for a gross of $1,125,000 ($722,588) , an average of $14,423 ($9,264), and a median of $9,500 ($6,102).
