St. Leger Festival Sale Begins Modestly

Doncaster’s St. Leger Festival yearling sale began on a modest note on Sept. 11 in England,with two £32,000 lots topping the session. They were a Kyllachy colt bought by agent Bobby O’Ryan for Cockney Rebel’s owner Phil Cunningham from Ballyhane Sales and a Starcraft filly purchased by agent David Redvers for owner Keith Trowbridge.

The £12,000 median price equaled last year’s figure, but the £12,945 average price fell by 23% and the £660,200 turnover for the 51 horses sold was down 43%.

The sale finishes on Sept. 11.
