The five-day Lexington Selected Yearling Sale kicked off Wednesday, October 7 at the Fasig-Tipton Sales Pavilion in Lexington, Kentucky and a full-sister to Somebeachsomewhere went through the sales ring.

The sale topper for the first session was Ultimo Dolce, a Glidemaster half-brother to Ontario Sires Stakes standout Bella Dolce. The colt sold for $270,000 to agent Blair Burgess of Campbellville, Ont.

Someheartsomewhere, the Mach Three full sister to 2008 Horse of the Year Somebeachsomewhere, is the highest priced pacer of the sale thus far. John Carver and Ron Michelon of Rapids City, IL. purchased the filly for $210,000.

The average for the first session came in at $78,125. Last year's opening session average was close to $90,000.

A total of 108 yearlings entered the sales ring. The action will continue Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 12:00 noon.

"There is plenty of good stock available for purchase in the coming evenings in Kentucky," wrote Dean Hoffman in his latest Trot Blog, which surveys the anxieties that come with buying and selling yearlings. "You name it and you can find it in the catalogue. I have not poured over each horse and each page, but I know it’s there. In fact, in a cursory check I even found one trotting filly that made my heart beat a little faster."
