The Ocala August yearling sale ended in Florida yesterday with across-the-board gains compared to last year.  The Select session on Tuesday saw a 9% average increase to $35,981.  The Open sessions on Wednesday and Thursday were even better with the average going up 26% to $8,818.

Thursday’s session was led by a Congrats filly that made $64,000.  The locally-bred filly is out of the stakes-placed mare Singsingasong (Sultry Song).  Next best was a Trippi filly at $50,000.  She is the first foal from stakes-winner Pyrite Bonds (Formal Dinner).
