Heritage Place held its fifth annual Thoroughbred Yearling & Mixed Sale in Oklahoma City on October 9th. The yearling session saw an 22% increase to the average compared to last year and the gross dollars for the sale were almost even with last year’s numbers.
In the yearling and mixed sale session, 73 of 96 offered sold this year for a total of $226,850 and an average of $3,108. That represents a slight increase from last year’s average of $3,025 when 84 of 107 head sold for $254,100.
As usual, the highest prices came during the yearling session, topped by an Oklahoma-bred by young Kentucky stallion Astrology who sold for $18,000. Al and Bill Ulwelling purchased the colt from the consignment of Rusty Roberts, agent. The March foal is out of the Vanlandingham mare Diamond Ruth, who has produced two stakes winners.
The highest-priced filly, a daughter of former Oklahoma stallion Omega Code sold for $16,000 to David Foster from Brewster Ranch, agent for Clark Brewster. The Oklahoma-bred is out of the stakes-winning and graded stakes-placed Wild Again mare Tuff Chick.
The average for the yearling session was $5,075, up 22.7 percent from last year’s yearling average of $4,137.
Heritage Place would like to thank the consignors and buyers for their participation in the fifth annual sale and wish everyone success with their purchases. The sale company will begin planning for next year’s sale and explore all ideas to help grow this event.
