An impressive $800,000 was paid out by purchasers at the 2017 C.T.H.S. Alberta Sale held at the Northlands Expo Centre in Edmonton on Sunday, September 17th.  A total of 107 top quality Thoroughbred yearlings were on offer with the gross sale figure increasing by over $300,000 from the previous sale. The yearling sale average increased in a positive direction to $10,233.33, up 24% over the 2016 average of $8,252.23.

Hip # 34, a beautiful Point of Entry filly consigned by Running Fawcett Thoroughbreds, was the top seller of the sale after she was purchased by Riversedge Racing Stables for $45,000.  Her sire is a Dynaformer stallion who is currently #2 on the Blood Horse list of First Crop Sires by Two Year Old Average and Median. Her dam, Carmen’s Kiss by Macho Uno, produced the winner of the $50,000 Beaufort Stakes the previous day at the Alberta Breeders’ Fall Classic.
