DBS Premier Yearling Sale - as it happens

11.55am: Doyle on the mark again, this time as the buyer of lot 292, a £70,000 son of Elusive City.

11.45am: A good run for the 'Bond' stallions as the first yearling to come on to the market by Reg Bond's Free Handicap winner Misu Bond (289) sells to Oliver St Lawrence for £40,000. Bond bred the colt, who is inbred 3x3 to Danehill, out of Forever Bond, the dam of this season's Queen Mary Stakes third Ladies Are Forever.

Two lots later, the only yearling catalogued by Ladies Are Forever's sire Monsieur Bond (291) sells for £50,000 to Tom Tate. Bred by Equity Bloodstock Services, the colt was snapped up for 15,000gns by Emerald Bloodstock at last year's Tattersalls December Foal Sale. He is bred to be a two-year-old as a half-brother to Windsor Castle Stakes winner Flashmans Papers.

11.30am: Sir Robert Ogden continues his spending spree by purchasing the first six-figure lot through the ring, a £105,000 son of Kodiac (286).

Ogden's racing manager Barry Simpson had to fight off Bobby O'Ryan for the colt, a homebred by Lynn Lodge Stud. The stud paid €48,000 for his dam, Florida City, at the 2007 Goffs February Sale.
