John and Tom Cancelliere of New Jersey have not only purchased the the full brother to the sensational Somebeachsomewhere, they have also collared the highest priced yearling in standardbred sale history.

Hip 203, Detour Hanover - the first full brother to the phenomenal racehorse and sire Donato Hanover, was sold for a record $825,000. The Cancellieres reportedly outbid trainer Staffan Lind on the Andover Hall - D Train colt.

Earlier in the sale the duo obtained Hip 120 Some Of The Beach (Mach Three - Wheres The Beach) for $430,000 - the highest price ever paid for an Ontario-sired yearling. Cancelliere was the underbidder on Hitting The Cycle, the Somebeachsomewhere yearling that sold at Lexington last month for $450,000 - the highest priced pacing yearling colt in harness racing history.

Before today's sale the highest price for any yearling was the $650,000 bid for trotting colt prospect Experience Victory in 1999.

The first session saw the hammer fall on 242 yearlings with gross sales totaling $13,242,000. The opening day average was $54,719 – an increase from last year’s opening day average of $52,157 (248 yearlings with gross sales of $12,935,000).

Trotting fillies posted the biggest gains from 2010. Fifty trotting fillies were sold for an average of $62,050, an increase of 27.6 percent from $48,612 last year. The colts averaged $57,408, up from $56,403, while trotters as a group averaged $59,426 this year, up from $53,248.

Pacers averaged $50,457 this year, compared to $51,118 last year. The average for pacing colts was $59,526, up from $53,592 in 2010 while the fillies went for an average of $36,020, a decrease from $47,431.
