    The surprises amongst the big lots IMO were
    Emma Stewart spending $95k on Lot 236, first season sire Vincent x Decapria colt. Decapria had some nice performances as a 2yo but I had to laugh at how the catalogue can manipulate things eg 3rd in heat Breeders Crown - there were only 3 in the heat
    and Lot 261 going for $100k - Rocknroll Hanover x Madison Louise filly. She is a stunner and it is hot on the heels of King Of Swing's win

    You cant take a break from the audio (auctioneer barrage) as there is no other way of knowing what is going on
    What a disappointment..no visible lot number or current bid.

    I'm not sure whether the Inglis facility for yesterday's sale has an electronic board above the auctioneer showing the lot number, and current bid price..like the one at the Magic Millions sale on the Gold Coast, but I gave up watching. If there is a screen above the auctioneers, then the camera needed to be adjusted.

    Then I tried to keep track of the sold lot prices on the Sale Results but the update stopped after about 20 lots.

    Do you think the auctioneers knew much about the lots they were selling? They seemed to be focusing on the sires, dam-sires etc, in preference to the families, and significant family members.

    None of these seem too difficult correct. I hope Sydney is an improvement.

    Oaklands Junction certainly had an electronic board above the auctioneer decades ago when I attended Noel.

    The Facebook live feed was the spot you should have watched. Live bids were updated here along with the prices of the previous 3 lots. Excellent coverage.

    Bloody hell, thanks Grant, they gave 3 otpions for streaming, I was on computer so I started with their webpage, no semaphore so I thought I would try YouTube and it was just the same, so I just assumed all the same. FFS how is one supposed to know that facebook was the go

    PP is mischieviously suggesting that Lot 236 went so high because one of Emma's partners in the buy, is the son of the breeder

    It is time they amend or remove black type based on mile rate. 1 win 1.59.7 horses listed as black type is offensive

    You have to say that the APG catalogue is pretty honest
    This is particularly true of the Sire's (leading) Progeny table under his pic
    There is no hiding if there is only a couple listed that are more recent than 2014
    Some people still buy them
