This year's edition of New Zealand Bloodstock's Premier Sale held steady off the back of last year's record-smashing Sale.

After 17% increases in median and average last year this year saw the average settle at $172,803, down 2%, while the aggregate rose 5% to $58,407,500 ($2,720,000 more than last year's figure).

Clearance equalled last year's figure of 78% with 338 horses sold and Managing Director Andrew Seabrook confident vendors and buyers alike should be pleased with the overall results.

"While we couldn't match last year's record average, the more important median has stuck firm at $140,000 and turnover is up."

"We've offered more Premier Sale horses this year and had a buying bench with enough extra depth to compete for them."

"The sale clashing with Chinese New Year wasn't ideal however increased participation from Dubai countered its effect."

"Again, we are grateful to our domestic buyers and overall leading buyer David Ellis and his Te Akau Racing team who continue to really bolster the Sale."

Curraghmore sold a total of 17 Premier yearlings amassing an aggregate of $4,575,000 placing them in the position of third leading vendor behind Waikato Stud and Cambridge Stud. Curraghmore also ended the sale as the third leading vendor by average.
