The strong pace showed no signs of slowing during Friday’s 11th session of Keeneland’s September Yearling Sale.

On Friday a total of 236 yearlings were sold for $4,103,000, up 127.3 percent from the 11th session last year, which marked the final day of the 2012 sale. The average price of $17,386 was 40.6 percent above last year’s $12,363, while the median price of $12,000 rose 20 percent from $10,000 in 2012.

Cumulatively, 2,549 yearlings have been sold for $277,578,100, up 26.3 percent from the $219,723,000 grossed for the entire 11-day sale in 2012 when 2,516 yearlings were sold. The average of $108,897 increased 24.7 percent over last year’s $87,330, while the median of $57,000 shows a 26.7 percent gain over $45,000 in 2012.

Claiborne Farm, agent, consigned Friday’s session-topper, a daughter of Broken Vow sold to Michonne Farm for $85,000. The filly is out of the Storm Cat mare Ranter, a half-sister to leading sire Pulpit, winner of the 1997 Toyota Blue Grass (G2) at Keeneland.

The day’s second-highest price of $75,000 was paid by Federico Barberini, agent, for a colt by First Defence out of the Officer mare Major Allie. Eaton Sales, agent, consigned the colt.
