Emperors Palace Summer Ready To Run Sale
School of Equine Management Excellence, Summerhill Stud
24 February 2015
We had a good turn-out Wednesday at the Emperors Palace Summer Ready To Run Sale staged at the School of Equine Management Excellence, with representation from Mauritius, Mogadishu, France and Cyprus.
As with most sales of this sort, the upper end made decent money, though there were some real bargains lower down. This sale has a history of producing a couple of smart performers for little money, and we're sure it will be a similar case going forward.
We felt this was a quality catalogue, and overall, in the current climate, we'd have to be satisfied with the outcome.
Our principal concern with the stallions was that they found good homes, as a result of which we let only Way West go to Louis Goosen. Mullins Bay may still have a bit of commercial wind in his sales, and it was more a case of buying out a shareholder who was looking for an exit, and doing that at a public auction in order to establish a value.
