$68,000 was paid for a yearling by Old Topper out of Miami Margie - a number not seen in many years at the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Alberta division) annual sale. The gelding was consigned by Vern & Debbie Hrycuik of Wanham, Alberta and sold to Riversedge Racing Stable of Okotoks, Alberta.

The CTHS Alberta Thoroughbred Sale was held at Northlands Park EXPO Centre in Edmonton on Sunday September 16, 2012. Results from the sale show positive increases in the number of yearlings sold and overall gross sales.  The 2012 yearling average of $8437.93 remains constant from the 2011 number of $8,468.57. This figure is encouraging given the recent uncertainty in the thoroughbred industry.


More yearlings were sold at the 2012 Sale with a total of 58 available to purchasers compared with 35 in 2011. Gross sales were up considerably with almost half a million in yearling sales ($489,400) compared with $296,400 the previous year.
