The 2021 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale continued on Friday evening (Oct. 8) with trotting colt Kountry Jon topping the fourth session in Lexington, Kentucky.

Selling as Hip 624, Kountry Jon was purchased for $200,000 by Philip Scott of Chesterfield, New Jersey. Consigned by Anvil And Lace Farm, acting as agent, the Father Patrick colt is the first foal out of the Swedish-bred Varenne mare Caddie In Love S.

American Cruiser, Hip 683, also garnered a six-figure bid of $140,000 from Megan Scran, agent for Greg Luther, of Campbell Hall, New York. The Brittany Farms-bred colt by American Ideal is the first foal out of the unraced Captaintreacherous mare Lady Captain. His dam is a half-sister to Breeders Crown champions Luck Be Withyou ($1,463,996, 1:47.4) and American Jewel ($1,834,823, 1:48.2), a two-time O'Brien Award winner.

Carry The Day, Hip 644, rounded out the top three highest priced yearlings of the session, selling for $85,000. Consigned by agent Diamond Creek, the Father Patrick-Winning Missbrenda colt was purchased by Marcus Melander, acting as agent for Brixton Medical, of New Egypt, New Jersey. Carry The Day is a half-sibling to multiple Grand Circuit stakes winner Win Missy B ($1,595,769, 1:52) and Winning Mister ($1,142,759, 1:51.3).

A total of 165 yearlings were sold on the fourth day of the auction for $4,771,000, resulting in an average price of $28,915 -- down from last year's day four average of $36,094.

Over the course of the first four sessions, 715 yearlings have gone through the sales ring with gross sales ($51,407,000) and average price ($71,898) up significantly compared to last year when 648 yearlings sold for $36,609,000, averaging $56,495.
