Below is a list of all the Stakes Winners that came out of the 2010 2-Year-Old In-Training Sales through 1/31/11. There's a chance that I missed one or two but I feel pretty confident that this is a comprehensive list. The list is organized by BRW (Best Race Won) and includes the track where they won their best race, sire, dam, the 2YO sale into which they were entered, the price they sold for and their breeze time. Of course, the crop of 2-year-olds that came out of last year's training sales still have long careers ahead of them but I thought it would be interesting to check out the early returns.
Here are a few interesting stats I compiled from this information:
Overall Sales Average = $101,189.65
Overall Sales Median = $ 70,000.00
Overall % Sold = 83%
Of the 2010 2YO In-Training Sales horses that where Stakes Winners 37% were GSW's.
Sales Average for Graded Stakes Winners = $110,500.00
Sales Median for Graded Stakes Winners = $ 55,000.00
% Sold for Graded Stakes Winners = 77%
Of the 2010 2YO In-Training Sales horses that where Stakes Winners 77% were sold at The Ocala Breeders' Sales Company.
Of the 2010 2YO In-Training Sales Horses that where Stakes Winners 43% were sold at The Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's April Sale.
The Average 1/8 work went in 10.1 with nothing slower that 10.4
The Average 1/4 work went in 21.2 with nothing slower than 22.2
The Average 3/8 work went in 33.3 with nothing slower than 34.2
The Average Sales price for 1/8 Workers = $127,785.00
The Median Sales Price for 1/8 Workers = $132,500.00
The % Sold of 1/8 Workers = 82%
The Average Sales price for 1/4 Workers = $ 78,363.00
The Median Sales Price for 1/4 Workers = $ 40,000.00
The % Sold of 1/4 Workers = 85%
The Average Sales price for 3/8 Workers = $ 56,700.00
The Median Sales Price for 3/8 Workers = $ 29,000.00
The % Sold of 3/8 Workers = 80%
% of 3/8 Workers that became Graded Stakes Winners = 75%
% of 1/4 Workers that became Graded Stakes Winners = 53%
% of 1/8 Workers that became Graded Stakes Winners = 18%
From this very small sample it looks as though buyers were better off purchasing that fast 1/4 or 3/8 work they liked than the 1/8 works. There's a much better chance they will become Graded Stakes Winners and on average they cost less.
