Lael Stable bought what I think is their first of this sale, a Candy Ride filly for $550k. She is 1/2 to G2W Lewis Bay and G3W Winslow Homer. Dam is GSW Summer Raven.

Thanks, mariasmon, for all your sales updates here. I'm usually all over this sale, but just can't keep up with it or the Twitter feed this week, too much going on.

Keeneland September: Trio of seven-figure colts leads cracking session
The level of competition among buyers at Book 2 of the Keeneland September yearling sale jumped to the next level on Wednesday, featuring a trio of seven-figure transactions.

Wednesday’s session was the second of three comprising the bellwether auction’s Book 2 as part of an overhauled catalog. Books 1 and 2 of this year’s renewal are arranged with an ultra-select, single-session first book followed by three Book 2 sessions before the auction’s traditional dark day. By comparison, last year’s sale featured a three-day Book 1, followed by the dark day, then two Book 2 sessions.

At the end of Wednesday’s trade, a total of 194 yearlings changed hands for revenues of $47,018,000.

The average sale price closed at $242,361, while the median checked in at $180,000. Wednesday’s average marked a 79 percent gain from the second session of last year’s Book 2, which landed at $135,638. It also displayed a 63 percent rise from last year’s cumulative Book 2 average of $148,672.

The buyback rate finished at 33 percent on Wednesday, compared with 35 percent during the second session of last year’s second book and 33 percent for Book 2 of 2016 at large.

Led by the three yearlings that brought seven figures, a total of six horses sold for $750,000 or more, and 22 sold for $500,000 or more.

Interesting article, thanks.

Also happy to see Godolphin buying horses sired by Coolmore stallions this year. Might result in more profit for the breeders, at least at the top end. Thanks, Joe Osborne.

Holy cow, this tweet from earlier in the day :

Jamie Newell‏ @wowhorse

Hip 274 bolted and started to run between trees, bystanders, other horses, and handlers. Billy hung on and RAN WITH THE HORSE.

I see now that it is. Good kid. And great job by him to not let him get loose.

I'd say he deserves a raise, but can Dale afford it with how his consignment is selling so far? (#shotsfired)

Working sales is a blast! If you're into the those sorts of things.
