    JRHA’s new arrangements for information disclosure in the Select Sale:

    1) Online Veterinary Repository for yearlings available on the official site
    2) Walking Video (1 minute) added to still images and pedigree tables

    I’ll be able to show the link to them in July.

    in the The Foal Session is locally talked about; perhaps, the colt might fetch $2m because this is the first time that a sibling of the past 6 triple crown winners in Japan has been up on auction lists. His conformation really looks like his brother.

    The Day One Result:
    Out of 156 yearlings, 122 were sold, and both the total amount ($29m) and the ratio 122/156=78% were better than those for last year.

    1. $1.56m: Rock of Gibraltar x My Katies (Sunday Silence); half-brother to Admire Moon

    He was bought by Big Red Farm whose representative, Mr Okada , spoke confidently:’I’m sure this will be the leading horse in Japan.’ His two elder brothers were sold for $2.5m in ’06 and for $3m in ’07.

    2. $1.24m: Deep Impact x Lotta Lace (Nureyev); half-brother to Fusaichi Pandora (Sunday Silence)

    Great photos; why does horse number 1 look so much more mature than the others? I would love to be able to look at a horse and know about conformation etc but, alas, it’s beyond me.

    Great photo’s. Especially like number 2! There is obviously still some money around for the good yearlings.
