The top lot was a colt from Mane Lodge by the coveted Extreme Choice. The colt was out of To Dubawi Go, a winning daughter of international super-sire Dubawi. A partnership of China Horse Club/Newgate/Trilogy went to a record setting $850,000 to secure him. China Horse Club and Newgate raced and stand the colt’s sire.
Deep Field led the sire title by aggregate, with 29 of his 34 yearlings on offer selling for a gross $4.35 million. Of horses with three or more sold, Lean Mean Machine led by median at $230,000. Extreme Choice led by average with three or more sold at $353,000.
The FBAA was represented by 19 individual agents. They purchased 79 yearlings for a cumulative $12.2 million, accounting for 15% of the catalogue and 18% of the gross. Randwick Bloodstock was responsible for the most expensive purchase, securing an I Am Invincible filly from Yarraman Park for $320k.
