LEXINGTON, KY – Night two couldn’t match the opening round of the Lexington Selected yearling sale, but no one seemed to be complaining. They sold 154 horses last night for a gross of $8,621,000 and an average of $55,981.
That amounted to a decline of just less than 1 percent over last year, or to be precise, 0.99 percent.
“I certainly wasn’t unhappy with the results tonight,” co-sales manager Randy Manges said. “The very small decline is no big deal. I think we are in good shape the rest of the way through. We have a strong consignment (Wednesday). With any sale, when you get to this point there will be some strong spots and some soft spots.
