Figures drop at Palace Two-year-old Sale

THE Emperors Palace National Two-year-old Sale in South Africa ended on Sunday with figures down across-the-board.

Trade failed to match the encouraging start achieved by Friday's opening session, at which the average rose nine per cent, leading to a 19 per cent drop in aggregate to R19,385,000 (£1,664,750/€1,894,660) and 22 per cent fall in average to R58,039 (£4,983/€5,671).

Prominent Fort Wood stallion Dynasty accounted for the top two lots including Sunday's session-topper who was sold to Alec Laird for R350,000 (£30,503/€34,200). Named Queen of the Sky, she is the first foal out of a placed sister to Group 3 winner Fun Sky and was consigned by Bosworth Farm.

Dynasty was also responsible for the top-priced colt, who was sold for R325,000 to owner Hassan Adams on Friday.
