Weanling sired by Yonaguska leads Keeneland Sunday session.
A weanling colt sired by Yonaguska was purchased by Bloodstock Services for $210,000 as the top price during Sunday's session of the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, which showed solid gains over the comparable session one year ago.
Produced from the Tri Jet mare Jetazelle, the dam of stakes winner Runaway Jet, the colt was consigned by Clarkland Farm.
Keeneland reported 256 head sold Sunday for a gross of $9,875,000. The session average of $38,574 and the median of $30,000 exceeded the $32,185 average and $25,000 median during the comparable session one year ago when 270 horses grossed $8,690,000.
After seven days of the 12-day auction, which has already exceeded the gross for the entire 2003 sale, 1,692 horses have been sold for $257,217,900, an average of $152,020, and a median of $62,000. At this point in the sale last year, 1,661 horses had been sold for $222,629,500, an average of $134,033 and a median of $55,000. The sale continues through Friday.Results, leading buyer, leading consignor, leading sire lists from Keeneland
