Scone Yearling Sale – Perry claims top colt from Jorson Farm

Queensland based Jorson Farm topped the Inglis Scone yearling sale on Sunday with a Northern Meteor colt that made $62,500.

The sale-topper is the second foal out of the winning Belong To Me mare Sirenese and was purchased by Newcastle trainer Paul Perry.

Jorson Farm owners Tony and Julie Brown sold a Choisir colt to Perry at Scone last year.  Registered as The Life, he won for the second time in five starts at Muswellbrook earlier this month but was a beaten favourite in the Inglis Scone Challenge on Friday.

The Browns also finished in the Top 5 on the median list at the Inglis Classic Sale in January with a Statue of Liberty colt topping its trio at $80,000.

Inglis sold 146 lots at Scone on Sunday for turnover of $1.77 million.  The average dipped 7% to $12,151 and the median was down 10% to $9,000.
