With five sessions remaining, the Keeneland September Yearling Sale has achieved its highest gross since 2008.

The sale continued with a seventh session yesterday, and the momentum generated by Books 1 and 2 carried into the Book 3 opener to help push gross sales to $236,874,000, from 1,408 horses sold.

Last year, 2,516 horses sold for $219,723,000; in 2008, the year the Great Recession hit, the gross was

$327,999,100. With several big-name end users still active– Shadwell, Fox Hill Farms, the West stable’s Ben Glass and Stonestreet Stables all signed for horses—and plenty of new faces buying, yesterday’s session average of $68,329 was up 52% from last year’s corresponding session. The session median of $57,000 was up 54.1%.

In 2012, the average was $44,963; the median was $37,000.

The cumulative average at September now stands at $168,235. That=s up 33.5% from last year’s average of $125,998. The cumulative median of $115,000 is up 43.8%.
