Etc. . . .


The three-day Tattersalls sale in Newmarket, England, posted new marks across the board when it ended Thursday, with 367 lots sold for a total of about $10,167,045, yielding an average price of about $27,704 and a median of about $15,540. In the local auction currency, the gross was 5,234,000 guineas, the average price was 14,262 guineas, and the median was 8,000 guineas - all records for the sale. . . . The second half of Woodbine's scheduled eight-race card Wednesday night was cancelled after the fourth race because a torrential rainstorm created a sloppy track that was washing out in spots. Racing resumed Thursday afternoon.
