MIDDLETOWN, NY – No one knew quite what to expect yesterday as the first horse in the first-ever Goshen Yearling Sale stepped into the auction ring. This was a new sale at a new place and it is in direct competition with the more established Morrisville Sale. But when it was over and the last yearling had been sold the people behind Goshen had proved their point, that a new, well-run, properly promoted regional sale in an ideal location would be a nice fit in the yearling sales market.
The buyers, the sellers and the sale’s organizers all came away happy yesterday as 114 yearlings were sold for a gross of $1,436,400. The average sale price was $12,600.
