Kentucky Day-3: Average Up 1.3%
Meanwhile on Day-3 at Keeneland, 255 lots sold for US$9,709,800 (up 4.6% on last year's 247 sold for US$9,283,800). The US$38,078 average was up 1.3% (last year US$37,586) & the US$23,000 median was up 15% (last year US$20,000). Duncan Taylor, president of leading consignor Taylor Made Farm, commented: "The whole trend is people want young, good looking mares that haven't had a lot of production. They would rather buy something that hasn't had a foal to the racetrack yet or hadn't been tried than they would something that was moderately good."
