Darley shuttler Exceed and Excel created a new record at the Doncaster Bloodstock 2YO Sale on Monday.
Tally Ho Stud’s Exceed and Excel colt from G2 Flying Childers winner Wunders Dream became the highest priced Doncaster 2YO graduate in history when he sold for 300,000 pounds. Agent David Redvers had the final call on behalf of Qatar Racing’s Sheikh Fahad and his brothers Sheikh Hamad and Sheikh Suhaim.
The colt had originally been through the ring as a yearling at the 2011 Doncaster Premier Sale when changing hands for 43,000 pounds. He was always going to be a popular pin-hook after a brilliant breeze-up prior to the 2YO Sale.
The Doncaster Sale’s turnover reached 3.60 million pounds. The average increased by 1% to 29,520 pounds on a healthy 77% clearance rate.
