Canadian partners David Anderson and John Fielding joined forces to take home the top ticket in Thursday’s fourth session of the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale when they shelled out $72,000 to purchase trotting colt Fight Song.

Selling as Hip #637, Fight Song is a Kadabra-Fortune Of Fables colt consigned by Cane Run Farm. The colt is a half-brother to the Cantab Hall filly Fade Into You (1:54.4 - $215,628).

It was another night that belonged to the trotters as the top four prices – five if you include the $75,000 RNA on the Chapter Seven-Dream Baby Dream colt On Cloud Seven.

Hip #556 Bethereinaprosecco was hammered down for $65,000 with JB Racing signing the sales slip on the daughter of Bar Hopping. The filly is the first foal of the 1:53.2 winner Thankful Reward. She was consigned by Kentuckiana Farms.

Hip #577 Unity In One also commanded a final bid of $65,000, and that bid was placed by Jenny Melander. The Cantab Hall-Southwind Adele colt is a half-brother to the multiple stakes winner, She Rocks Kemp (1:54.3 - $152,225). He was consigned by Hunterton Sales Agency.

Hip #530 Penthouse S was a $60,000 purchase by Marcus Melander. The daughter of Nuncio is the second foal out of Penthouse S. The dam is a half-sister to Scarlet Knight (1:52.3 - $1,951,740). Hunterton Sales Agency consigned the trotter lass.

A total of 169 yearlings went through the ring during Thursday’s fourth session with just shy of $6.5 million in total purchases for an average price of $36,094. Last year saw 168 yearlings sell during the fourth session of the sale for close to $4.6 million in total sales and an average sale price of $27,268.

Over the course of the first four sessions a total of 648 yearlings have sold for $36,609,000. The average sale price going into Friday’s fifth – and final – session is $56,495.
