2020 MM National Weanling Average: $41,435
Across the two days of selling the National Weanling Sale rounded out with a gross of $7,707,000 and average price of $41,435 for 186 lots sold at a clearance rate of over 72 per cent. "When you look at what is going on in the world I am satisfied with the results," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said. "Although I did expect there to be a little bit more strength in the middle end than what there was. On the whole, the good horses sold seriously well and there were plenty of bids on the right product. As we've seen in all sales this year, anything that was off the pace seems to struggle a little bit more than it used to and I guess that is understandable." Bowditch added, "The weanlings that were passed in, breeders have other options to sell them over the next 12 months and you would think we would see them back at yearling sales next year, but obviously we will be working to sell as many as possible over the next few days."
