Dalgetys pay top price of last day on NZB yearling sales

The 2022 NZB Standardbred Yearling Sales are over, with sales in excess of $14m. 

They wrapped up this afternoon after the opening day at Karaka on Sunday and then three days in Christchurch - (trotters on Monday, with pacers Tuesday and Wednesday). 

Today was the second day of the Pacers sale and it wasn't quite as action packed as yesterday when there was a top price of $260,000 and nearly $4m turned over, with an average price of $51,338.

The top price today was the $200,000 shelled out by Cran and Chrissie Dalgety's Kentuckiana Lodge for Lot 318, a Captaintreacherous - Imaginary Bet colt.

"It had a few more zeroes than I would have liked," Dalgety joked after the sale, "but sometimes you have to pay overs to get what you want."

Seven other yearlings went past $100,000, including two later in the day - Lot 405 (Bettor's Delight - Solandra colt) for $150,000 and Lot 408 (Captain Treacherous - Spanish Armada colt) for $120,000.

A total of 35 horses sold for at least $100,000 over the four days.

In all the sale's turnover was $14.5m, with an average of $50,292 and a clearance rate of 75 per cent.
