The stallions with the most successful results for progeny sold at juvenile sales in 2002 fall into two groups: those who had one or two individuals that sold for six- or seven-figure prices, with the balance bringing prices well under $100,000 and those who had the majority of their progeny selling for six figures and a smaller number that sold for four figures. This article will briefly highlight the sires that fall into both of these categories.

Stable Market: Non-Select Juvenile Sales in Review

Non-select sales of 2-year-olds in training experienced declines in gross revenue, average price, and median price in 2002. Usually such negative trends are signs of poor economic health.
