Yearlings from powerhouse trotting stallion Angus Hall fetched the three of the five highest prices at today's Canadian Open Yearling Sale at Flamboro Downs.

Baileys Breeze, the Angus Hall sister to the multiple O'Brien Award winning Casual Breeze, was purchased from the Cool Creek Standardbreds consignment by Carl Jamieson of Princeton, Ont. for $102,000.

Centurione, an Angus Hall brother to the $326,000 winning trotting filly Torch, will report to the Gino Toscani stable as the trainer paid $75,000 to pluck the colt from the Guy Polilo consignment.

Jamieson also signed the sales slip on Cross Of Lorraine, an Angus Hall full sister to the $246,000 earner Australian Stock, for $50,000. Preferred Equine Marketing consigned the filly.

Chestnut yearlings rounded out the top five list of sale prices. Robigo Varenda, a stunning colt from famed European trotter Varenne, was purchased by agent Clare Semer of South Palm Beach, Fl. for $57,000 from the Polilo consignment, while John Kopas shelled out $38,000 to obtain Angel Creek - a Striking Sahbra sister to the speedy Grand Circuit winner Captain Brady. Cool Creek Standardbreds consigned this filly, giving each Cool Creek and Polilo two of the five highest priced yearlings.

With threatening weather holding off to provide excellent sale conditions and a packed house at the newly remodeled SC Sales Pavilion, 175 yearlings were sold for $1.88 million, resulting in a sale average of $10,786. The average was up significantly from the $8,279 average in 2007.
