Lot 34 the Sleeping Indian filly out of American Rouge sold to Karl Burke for £15,000. The other Sleeping Indian in our draft, Lot 162 a colt out of Flora Burn made £13,000 and was sold to Middleham Park Racing. He will be trained by Kevin Ryan who has done so well with the progeny of the sire.

On the second day the Shamardal ex Nilassiba filly was bought for £42,000 by Blandford Bloodstock. She will be returning to Hillwood to breeze next spring in new ownership. Lot 420 the Dutch Art filly out of Spunger was sold to Tim Easterby for just £10,500. She looked a very precocious two year old type and could not be with a better trainer of early season two year old types. Our final offering, Lot 436 a colt by Haafhd ex Sweet Ludy was not sold in the ring but was subsequently sold privately to Mick Easterby.
Overall the sale was a solid start to the major European Yearling Sales season. Despite the noticeable abscence of some of the larger players there was a strong demand for athletic, correct individuals.
