Report from Yearling session of 2017 Select Sale

The first fireworks on the day is seen at early part of the yearling session of JRHA Select, which organized the first edition in 1998 and the sale in 2017 is the 20th anniversary, when Hip#13, colt by Deep Impact out of Silverskaya, consigned by Northern Farm, is bought by Masaaki Matsushima of Kiefffers Co Ltd for 260,000,000yen,

Matsushima, who is close friend of super jockey Yutaka Take, said of the purchase. "It is my dream to materialize the dream of Yutaka Take. This is the reason why I bought this yearling."
And the biggest fireworks of the day is seen afternoon, when Hip#107 went on the sales ring. After seven minutes long bidding war, Satomi Hajime manages to buy the colt by Deep Impact out of Listen for 270,0000,000yen.

"There are two yearlings which I am interested in today, but one of them scratched unfortunatey. Hence, though the price went up a bit more than I thought, I kept trying", Satomi said after the purchase. The colt will be trained by Yasutoshi Ikee at Ritto.

216 yearlings are sold for 8,634,500,000yen in total at the yearling session of 2017 JRHA Select Sale. It is 6.2% increase from 2016 and establishes the new record at the yearling session. The average price, 39,974,537yen, is 18.2% higher than 2016 and is also new record at the yearling session. And the clearance rate, 89.3%, eclipses the previous record.

"This is obviously better market than I expected", Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farm, the biggest consignor at the market, said at conclusion of the session. "15 horses are sold for more than 100 million yen today. 8 of them are yearlings by Deep Impact and 7 of them are yearlings by another stallion. We have variation of top stallions and I think it helps to boost the market. And we have seen a lot of new players in the market and it is also factor behind the strong market."

The second and foal session of JRHA Select Sale starts at 10:00am on Tuesday 11th.


I went to bed somewhere around hip 80, I missed the second half excitement. :-/
