OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—SEPTEMBER 20, 2019—Heritage Place's September Yearling Sale continued its momentum into the closing session today (Friday), which saw two additional six-figure transactions.
"We had a big finish to the Yearling Sale today," Heritage Place General Manager Spence Kidney said Friday evening. "The last session averaged $22,581 which is 10% higher than yesterday’s average. Overall the sale finished with an increase of 18% compared to last year."
Heritage Place reported the 543 sold horses grossed $11,581,600 at the two-day sale, for an average price of $21,329 and a $15,500 median. The 69 head that went unsold represented an RNA rate of 11%. Ten horses sold for $90,000 and above.
Comparisons with the 2018 September Yearling Sale are difficult because this year's auction was reformatted into a two-day event. Last year 642 horses were marked sold for $11,730,900, an $18,272 average and a $12,250 median.
"Thanks to all of the buyers and consignors and we wish everyone the best of luck with their purchases," Kidney continued. "We have a great catalog of yearlings to offer at the upcoming Fall Mixed Sal—with more than 250 to choose from—in addition to the Mixed Session as well."
