Some high headline prices as usual but they can't disguise a 20+% fall in aggregate, median and average prices.

I'd love some of the 'elite' agents and buyers to try to point out exactly why x horse (viewed/judged to be book 1 quality already, vetted & scoped) is worth 50k and the next Kingman out of anything is 250k.    It would be cringworthy.   Glad I'm not sitting on 30-50k covers by good stallions who are not even getting a lookin.

Its a bit like a car boot sale really isn't it?

They may all be in Bk1 but they look very different. I don't think the Kingmans look great and he is a little overated at the moment.

£3.6m for Barney Roy's half-brother? Someone's going to get their fingers burnt.

Interesting Dubawi x Miss Marjurie sold for 1.1 Million to Godolphin.

Miss Marjurie is a daughter of Kazatzka who is a half sister to Soviet Song put of Elites star broodmare Kalinka.

One wonders how much Elits Frankel x Marlinka (dam of Marsha, Judicial) would be worth....

Dubawi x Ribbons (ex Sister Act, full sister to Soviet Song) went for 750k guineas too. Im told she has an outstanding colt foal by Frankel.

Elite must have a big budget for stallion nominations. No problem now they have sold well. I was surprised to see so few Nathaniels in Book 1. Are they all being retained as home breds?

No Sageform, they look like NH stock.

Tragically sageform both of the mares above were sold by Elite. So merely a boost for the family.

Its is strongly rumored that Marshas half sister is going to be sold in fosl to Mastecraftsman later this year however.

It is the ommadawns (phonetic version of a gaelic word meaning "stupid idiots") who are paying to keep Mr-£6m-Marsha in clover who are "tragic".

RoyalAcademy, why the gratuitous insult? Many hundreds of people have tasted ownership through affordable clubs like Elite and so thoroughly enjoyed the experience that they have progressed to syndicate / partnership /sole owners of racehorses. I know of at least a dozen who have done so and BBC has enthusiastically progressed that way already - that benefits all of us in the industry and is to be encouraged, not disparaged.

You're a very bitter person RA.  Kindly desist and wind your neck in. We all know what we are signing up to. No-one holds a gun to our heads.  If you don't like it, then tough. I prefer the ownership model I'm now a part of, thanks to the years of club membership I have enjoyed.  soory if I don't fit into your 'membership ideal'.
