BBAG Autumn Sale "under most difficult circumstances&qu

BBAGThe second day of the BBAG Autumn Sale went ever so slightly better than was really mostly expected. The total aggregate of 1.139.500 Euros for exactly 71 horses less than last year established a minus of 10,7%, but the average price at 6.625 Euros and the median of 6.800 Euros amounted to a plus of 20% respectively 26%. The result of the sale can by no means ask for bounds of joy, but Karl-Dieter Ellerbracke, the president of the BBAG sales company, found some fitting words: „This sale was held under the most difficult circumstances. The cancelled racing fixtures at Cologne, Frankfurt and Hassloch, the likely closing of the racetrack at Bremen, the missing horses from the Cologne track due to the quarantine situation there and the statement of one of Germany's big bearer's of hope that „several racetracks should be closed down“ without, though, being able to offer a key to the future and realistic concept at the same time have surely had their influence here and today“.

The day's sales topper at 38.000 Euros was Gestut Fahrhof's lot 176 which was knocked down to Tina Rau who was acticng on behalf of Australian interests. The Konigstiger yearling colt is a half-brother to the Sir Percy colt Wake Forest as the winner of Friday's Ferdinand Leisten-Memorial as the richest auction race for juveniles in this country. The dam Wurfspiel is a Lomitas half-sister to the champion Acatenango mare Wurftaube as the dam of last year's German Derby hero Waldpark as well as her descendants including last year's English St. Leger hero Masked Marvel, this year's Prix Penelope heroine Waldlerche and the Listed winning and dual Classic placed Oasis Dream filly Waldtraut.

For 30.000 Euros Rune Haugen snapped up Alexander Pereira's two-year-old Huricane Run filly Celia (lot 41A) who is already the winner of a valuable auction race and is a granddaughter of the German Oaks victrix Centaine. 30.000 Euros was also the price paid for by Stall SCU for Gestut Etzean Sholokhov yearling filly Summertime (lot 341) who is a half-sister to this year's Group III Karin Baron von Ullmann Schwarzgold-Rennen winner Survey. Trainer Hans-Jurgen Groschel had the last bid at 28.000 Euros for Gestut Hachtsee's yearling filly Night Lily (lot 300) as daughter of the Champion Stakes winner Literato and a High Chaparral-sister to the Group placed Listed winners Near Honor and Near Dock from the family of the German Oaks heroine Night Petticoat and her Classic winning offspring Next Desert and Next Gina. Stall Garden Lounge had the last bid at 26.000 Euros for Gestut Brummerhof's three-year-old Shirocco filly All Summer Long (Lot 210) who is due to run on Sunday at Baden-Baden. The filly is a half-sister to the Group II Gerling-Preis scorer All Spirit and a granddaughter of the Surumu mare Astica's whose descendants number six Stakes winners.
