The final session of the Black Book Sale's mixed portion takes place today Harrisburg's Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex Sales Arena.

Over 2,200 horses ranging from yearlings and weanlings to racehorses and broodmares, stallions and stallion shares will hit the auction block. On Saturday, the sale features top racehorses with hips 1680 – 2278.

Originally scheduled to sell on Saturday as Hip 1960, I Kill Time was sold on Friday instead so she could compete in the Matron Stake Final at Dover Downs on Saturday. Consigned by Walnridge Farm, the two-year-old daughter of Western Ideal-Her Mattjesty topped the first mixed sale session as she was purchased for $170,000 by Odds On Racing of Crete, Illinois. I Kill Time is a half-sister to Waffles And Cream ($267,970), Arts Mattjesty ($193,550) and Philosopher King ($405,627). She currently sports a record reading 6-2-0 in 10 starts including wins in the $100,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Final on Sept. 25 at Freehold Raceway and her Matron elimination on Nov. 6 in 1:54.2. Her earnings stand at $106,825.

For the first portion of the sale, a total of $34.5 million was doled out for 1,124 yearlings, and that translates into average sale price of $30,745. A pair of $70,000 purchases proved to be the highest priced yearlings to go through the ring on Thursday. Bolt The Duer - a pacing colt by Ponder and Arc De Triumph, a pacer from the first crop of Tell All.

College Major was the highest priced yearling to go through the ring during Tuesday's session. The son of Art Major, who went through the ring as Hip #482, sold for $145,000. The colt was sold by Preferred Equine. Jeff Gillis was the successful bidder.
