Canadian Premier Yearling Sale Sees Increase in Sale Median
Wednesday, September 2, 2020

September 2, 2020, Toronto – A 12% increase in the sale median at the annual Canadian Premier Yearling Sale held at the Woodbine Sales Pavilion in Toronto where 142 yearlings sold for $2,795,300.  The average decreased slightly from $21,538 in 2019 to $19,685, the median increased by 12% to $14,500 and the buyback rate decreased.


Peter Berringer, President and Sales Chair of the CTHS (Ontario Division) stated that “With no individual yearlings selling for over $100,000 this year and with the delay of the beginning of racing and the lifestyle changes due to the COVID-19 health pandemic the CTHS was pleased to see the median of the sale increase by 12% from $13,000 to $14,500.  Some of this increase can be attributed to all the enhanced viewing and bidding options, with over 200 people registering for online bidding, a new incentive introduced for the 2020 sale.”


We are thankful to all our loyal supporters, Breeders and new purchasers at the Ontario Premier Yearling Sale.  Showing the confidence that it still pays to Breed, Buy and Race in Ontario.”
