Book Seven attracted a bid of $157,000 from Stroy Inc. to top the third session of the Harrisburg Yearling Sale, which took place Wednesday (Nov. 7) at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pa.

A son of New York sire Chapter Seven who is also eligible to the Maryland stakes program, Book Seven commanded a bid that tripled the combined selling prices of dam Tantalizing Donna's three previous foals. Winbak Farm was the consigner.

After 76 yearlings sold for six-figure price tags on the first two days of the sale, only two cracked the $100,000 mark in the Wednesday session. Sports Style (Sportswriter-Nothing But Style) attracted the second-highest winning bid of the day, with Adriano Sorella purchasing the Ontario-eligible colt from Spring Haven Farm.

Tony Alagna signed for two yearlings at $90,000 apiece, purchasing Pennsylvania-eligible Pure Essence (Western Ideal-My Little Artist) from Preferred Equine, and New York-eligible Radiant Blue Chip (Roll With Joe-Incredible Beauty) from Blue Chip Farms.

In total, 357 yearlings passed through the sales ring on Wednesday, with $7,427,000 changing hands altogether. The average purchase price was $20,804. Over the three days combined, 830 yearlings sold for $35.42 million, with an average purchase price of $42,675. This represents a 4.9 per cent increase in gross sales from the 2017 Yearling Sale and a 7.6 per cent increase in the average sale price per horse.

The first of two Harrisburg Mixed Sale sessions begins Thursday (Nov. 8) at 10 a.m.
