The 2016 Harrisburg Sale concluded on Friday, Nov. 11 with the second of two mixed sale sessions at the PA Farm Show Complex.

With a focus on racehorses, a number of familiar names fetched in excess of $100,000 from the crowd in attendance. A total of 15 racehorses sold for that price or higher, with four-year-old trotter Crescent Fashion, garnering the most attention. Selling as Hip 1722 as part of the Preferred Marketing consignment, the son of Muscle Hill and Fashion Feline was purchased for $250,000 by Ross Croghan of Clarksburg, New Jersey. The Grand Circuit stakes competitor campaigned by Ake Svandstedt is a winner of eight races and $450,000 in purse earnings, with a lifetime mark of 1:55.1 taken at Pocono Downs and equalled at Yonkers Raceway.

Four-year-old pacing mare Bettor Be Steppin, Hip 1424, also topped the $200,000 mark during Friday's session. The multiple stakes-winning four-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight and Two Steppin Sally was purchased by Hanover Shoe Farms.

Three-year-old pacing colt Another Daily Copy, Hip 1557, was purchased for $155,000 by Richard Banca of Saddle River, New Jersey. The Somebeachsomewhere-Court Stenographer colt was a Pennsylvania stakes winner and competed against the Glamour Boys on the Grand Circuit this year.

The millionaire trotting mare Charmed Life and Simcoe Stakes winner Bee In Charge rounded out Friday's top five sellers, each attracting final bids of $150,000. Charmed Life, a six-year-old daughter of Majestic Son out of Christina M, was purchased by Rene Allard of Matamoras, Pennsylvania. Banca acquired the three-year-old trotting gelding Bee In Charge (Manofmanymissions-Beehive), who is a half-brother to $4 million-earner Bee A Magician.

Satin Pillows fetched the highest price of the first mixed sale session on Thursday. The regally-bred daughter of Conway Hall-Bold Dreamer, already the dam of multiple stakes-winner and Dan Patch champion To Dream On, was selling as part of the William Weaver dispersal in foal to Cantab Hall. She was purchased by Hunterton Farms' Steve Stewart for $250,000.

The two-day mixed sale was comprised of 675 entries, including broodmares and broodmare prospects, weanlings, yearlings, stallion shares, and racehorses. Total sales were $19,850,001, with the average price $29,407. During last year's mixed sale, 681 horses sold for $19,732,400, producing an average price of $28,976.
