END-USERS PURCHASED 9 OF TOP 10 OFFERINGS


“That was a filly that we were very proud of. We really debated on what sale to put her in, where she would make the most sense. And we thought, let’s take her out to July and try to make a bit of a splash… everything came together really nicely. She showed herself nicely out here and had plenty of interest.” - Ned Toffey, Spendthrift Farm, on sale topping Authentic filly

“The better ones you have to pay a little bit more for, but that’s typical. Overall, we are really pleased.” - Kenny McPeek, Leading Buyer by Gross in 2023

“I feel we overpaid for both… We went above what we were planning to spend on both of them.” - Neil Pessin, Purchased Vekoma colt ($200,000) and Spun to Run colt ($125,000)

“We are into day three of showing. The first two days were very strong. Early on Saturday, we were covered with all-lookers and yesterday it started to separate into, ‘OK, these are the ones we like,’ and still we had nothing but dead steady, all-day long, great traffic.” - Kerry Cauthen, Four Star Sales
