2018 Fountain of Youth Sale summation

The 2018 ASHS Fountain of Youth Sale was held on Sunday 4th March and ended under adverse conditions with rain, hail and one heck of a noise drowning out the auctioneers and stirring the young horses.  Select Sires progeny performed exceptionally well, topping the sale and each category.

88 ASH yearlings and 2 year olds were offered for sale:

  • 56 Sold.
  • Gross $324,250
  • Overall average $5,790.

TOP GELDING – On account of Jock & Kate Gordon

2018 ASHS Fountain of Youth Sale – Derowie Phoenix – Sold $8,000

Mixed results at the 2018 Fountain of Youth Sale on the weekend, but not for Derowie Performance Horses where it was business as usual, selling the top priced yearling gelding. 30 were on offer, 21 sold and Derowie Phoenix peaked at $8,000. Having just seen his half sister win the 2018 ASHS Futurity, wise decision by the purchaser. Watch this space, he'll be back!Kate Gordon, Jock Gordon

TOP FILLIES – Both on account of Toby Frazer

Lot 91 – Bullseye Whitney. Sold $13,500, 2018 FOY Sale.

We've already seen the 2018 Fountain of Youth top priced gelding sell, Lot 32, Derowie Phoenix. The top price of $13,500 for fillies was shared by Lot 77 Bullseye Phoenix and Lot 91 Bullseye Whitney (by Binnia Impressive Destiny), both on the account of Toby Frazer.Rain, hail and one heck of a noise made it difficult for the auctioneers and young horse by the time Lot 91 was reached, but she was certainly worth hanging around for.Fi Palmer
