It was Supreme Thoroughbreds' 4th year at this sale and we offered 26 yearlings in the Prem 1 section of the sale and 1 in Prem 2.  Of the 27 yearlings in total we had a nicely balanced draft of 14 fillies and 13 colts.  For the first time the selling commenced on Sunday, and the Monday included a Blue Riband section featuring yearlings with stamina-influenced pedigrees.

Supreme's expertly prepared draft attracted buyers with an eye for quality including local and interstate bloodstock agents and trainers; as well as international buyers from South Africa and Hong Kong.

At the end of session 1 Supreme had sold 22 for a total of $1,913,500.  This is an average sale price of just under $87,000 which is 14% above the sale average price of $76,302.

Supreme finished 3rd on average sale price for vendors with 15 or more to sell.  Supreme's excellent result in this sale was third in line behind Three Bridges and Yallambee - two highly respected organisations with many more years in the business.


Three highlights of Supreme's sale were:

Lot 201 Expensively x New Approach 11 - chestnut colt sold for $310,000 to Rockmount, Vic

Lot 286 Cause To Dream (USA) x Street Sense (USA) 11 sold for $200,000 to Alderson Racing

Lot 547 Murray Mary (NZ) x Bel Esprit 11 brown colt sold for $280,000 to George Moore Bloodstcok, Hong Kong.


Nine of the yearlings in our 2013 draft were born and raised at Supreme, Romsey.  It is quite clear that the expert care and attention really pays dividends as the average sale price for these horses was more than $131,000 - which is about 72% above the average sale price.
