Overall at the Premier sale, the Makybe draft secured second position by aggregate, selling 25 yearlings for a total of A$2,342,000 (£1,587,489/€1904,465).

Progeny by the stud's resident stallion Purrealist sold well with three yearlings knocked down for a total of A$277,000, each averaging a price of A$92,333.33 reflecting a return of more than ten times his service fee. The top lot was a filly out of Tendency for A$150,000.

The highest priced filly in session one was also presented by Makybe. Segenhoe Thoroughbreds purchased the Fastnet Rock filly out of Crystal Choir, a stakes producing Singspiel mare, for A$330,000.

The Australian Easter Yearling Sale in April will see a Makybe draft of 11 yearlings including a half-brother to Makybe Diva by Street Cry from Tugela, a half sister to Black Caviar by Redoute's Choice from Helsinge and a half-brother to Starspangledbanner by Redoute's Choice from Gold Anthem in conjunction with Gilgai Farm.

Makybe topped the Easter sale last year with Black Caviar's half brother that now races as All Too Hard, the impressive winner of his first start in Melbourne last month.
