KENTUCKY NOVEMBER: SAME BUT DIFFERENT
Date: November 19th, 2018
This article originally appeared in BloodHorse Daily on November 19th, 2018.
By Bill Oppenheim
If you happen to be an analyst of business, the fact that our industry’s sales results are reported by sales company (first Fasig-Tipton, then Keeneland, in this case) can be a little misleading. Fasig-Tipton held a one-day sale with 250 horses catalogued (up 23% from last year) which grossed $89,473,000 (up 20% from 2017). Then Keeneland held a 12-day sale with 4,513 horses catalogued (up 9% from last year) which grossed $188,508,500 – down 7% from 2017. The market is 18 times bigger at Keeneland; in one day Fasig sold 5% of the horses sold in the Kentucky November sales for 32% of all the money spent over 13 days. What gives?
Combined, over 13 days of selling there were 4,763 horses catalogued, nine percent more than last year’s 4,350 catalogued between the two sales. This year 2,678 horses sold, 56.2% of those catalogued and five percent more than last year, when 2,539 horses sold. The combined 2018 Kentucky November Mixed sale gross was $277,981,300, six-tenths of 1% higher than last year’s combined gross of $276,221,700. The 2018 average was $103,801, a four percent drop from last year’s $108,791.
On the whole, then, the 2018 Kentucky Mixed Sale market returned very similar figures to 2017. But there were two very distinct market tiers – ‘the top’ and ‘the rest’ – and they behaved somewhat differently.
To a large extent – much more so than yearling catalogues – mixed sale results are very dependent on the number and calibre of top-class horses actually offered for sale. Last year, for example, there were three absolutely world-class fillies/mares sold in November for over $5-million each: Songbird ($9.5m), Tepin ($8m), and Stellar Wind ($6m) – total $23.5m. This year Lady Aurelia, at $7.5-million, was the only one to bring over $5-million. Even if you add in the next two highest-selling mares, Stopchargingmaria ($4.4m) and Lady Eli ($4.2m), the top three last year brought $7.4-million more than the top three this year. So there was a 31% drop in gross for the top three prices.
There was also a 19% drop in the number of horses bringing $1-million-plus, from 37 last year to 30 this year. If we define the top tier of the market as Fasig-Tipton plus Keeneland Book 1, it’s pretty clear how that top tier declined: Keeneland shrunk its Book 1 from 367 horses catalogued over two days to 250 catalogued over one. Fasig’s catalogue grew by 47 horses, but combined the number of top-tier horses catalogued declined 12%, from 570 to 500, and the number actually sold declined by 18%, from 316 last year to 260 this year. The combined gross declined 8%, from $158,191,000 in 2017 to $145,893,000 in 2018. The average for those top-tier horses sold did rise 11%, from $500,620 last year to $561,127, but the decline in the other metrics looks a lot more significant than the nominal rise in average, caused to a large extent by the number of horses sold falling.
What also looks significant are further gains in the top tier of the mixed sales by Fasig-Tipton at the expense of Keeneland Book 1. In 2017, Fasig had 35% of the horses catalogued between its sale and the two-day Keeneland Book 1. They sold 36% of the horses, for 47% of the combined gross, and 51% (19 of 37) of the seven-figure sales. In 2018, Fasig catalogued 50% of the horses, sold 54%, for 61% of the combined gross, and 73% (22 of 30) of the horses sold for $1-million-plus.
In fact, at the close of business Nov. 16, Keeneland reported a 7% decline in gross, and an 11% decline in average, for their November Sale, overall. But the fact is the top tier (Book 1) at Keeneland was down 32% in number catalogued and 33% in gross, which was in fact over $27.5-million. The rest of the sale was actually up:
KEENELAND BOOK 2 – END
2018: 4,263 catalogued; 2,418 sold (56.7%); gross $132,086,300; average $54,621
2017: 3,780 catalogued; 2,223 sold (58.8%); gross $118,025,700; average $53,093
Number catalogued: +12%; number sold: +8%; gross: +12%; average: +3%
So, again, when we add it all up this way, Fasig was up $15.2-million; Keeneland Books 2-7 were up $14-million; and Keeneland Book 1 was down $27.5-million. Looking at it another way, the ‘top tier’ (Fasig plus Keeneland Book 1) was down $12.3-million, while the rest of the market was actually up by $14-million.
WEANLING/COVERING SIRES
Pioneerof The Nile, sire of the $1.9-million filly at Fasig-Tipton who was the only seven-figure weanling at the Kentucky sales, was the leading sire by weanling average as six weanlings by him sold, for an average of $617,500 (the other five averaged $361,000), while Tapit had five weanlings average $516,000. Medaglia D’Oro had six weanlings average $368,333, and War Front had just two sell, which averaged $355,000. Curlin had five average $325,000, and Into Mischief had 13 weanlings sell for an average of $281,692. Other sires with 10+ weanlings sold between the two sales and averages over $100,000 included: Quality Road (11/avg $265,000); American Pharoah (15/$225,000); and Candy Ride (10/$212,500). Leading sires with their first crops of weanlings selling were headed by the Darley pair of Nyquist (5/$279,000) and Frosted (10/$181,500), followed by: Runhappy (15/$148,667); California Chrome (7/$116,714); and Exaggerator(9/$116,333).
War Front was leading covering sire, with seven mares in foal averaging $2,189,286). Tapit (6/$1,358,333) and Medaglia D’Oro (8/$1,177,500) were again two-three, followed by Curlin (9/$908.889). Arrogate (8/$417,500), Gun Runner (10/$367,500) and Claiborne’s very popular Mastery (28/$237,500) were the top first-year covering sires.
