Looks like an absolute bloodbath. High is $85k for #152. Only counted 8 horses over $40k.


This sale has never been the strongest of the season--which is probably why F-T cancelled it before bowing to seller demand and reinstating it.

As HYP pointed out, the average is down only slightly and the median is up from last year--which goes against the trend of most recent sales. Hardly a bloodbath.

This has always been a cull sale with the occasional diamonds in the rough.

Quite a lot of very good horses have come out of the F-T October sale. I don't think of it as a cull sale, like the Jan and Feb sales are. Certainly, there are some awfully good quality horses in the October sale that aren't really "culls"...

Typically there are some RNA's from September Keeneland in this October sale - giving the seller another chance to move the horse at a more realistic price. But for the most part, I think, this sale has become THE sale for yearlings from less expensive or less fashionable stallions. Selling at Keeneland on a stud fee below $15K is almost a shutout.

Gotta be someplace for us poor breeders to sell, some of us can't afford the really expensive stallions but know how to breed a racehorse.

It is quite interesting how things can spin out. I think the buy backs were down because there were So Many Horses without reserves. You could have filled a racing stable with yearlings under $3K. Yet the median was up a bit..

Funny how an average up $430 and a median up $500 can be called a rebound.
