Harness: Lexington Selected Yearling Sale increases continue


The fourth night of the 2016 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale has concluded, and as had been the case the previous three sessions, there was an increase year-over-year.  The average of $25,522 for the 113 head sold marked a 19.6% uptick over the 2015 sale.

HIP 419 Rose Run TJ was the session leader, bringing $97,000 from W.J. Donovan.  Consigned by Spring Haven Farm, Rose Run TJ is a colt by Roll With Joe and out of the Jenna's Beach Boy mare Tropic's Beachgirl.  That makes him a half-brother to three six-figure earners, including Rockin In Heaven (Rock N Roll Heaven, $473,957).

Heading into tomorrow night's final session, the sale is now up 21.6% over last year.
