That's the so called professionals for you. Millionaires out bidding one another so they can brag :roll:

So true Les, you only need a few bidders in Asia, and the price goes through the roof.

Nice to see some decent money for distance blood though. A lot of the highest prices so far seem to be sprint or middle distance it seemed.
2016 - RPRA - 0/2 - No result
2017 - RPRA & FYBD - 1/4 (110th) & 2/3
2017/18 - SAMDPR - 1/4 (A LEGEND)
2018 - Costa Del Sol - 7/9 Ace Speed Champions

Refinement is worth the effort. :-)

The sport has gone mad, it's certainly not the working man's racehorse any more. As you say Les it's all about bragging rights.

The Joel Verschoot Auction on Pipa at the moment, there are 178 lots at present they are at 13489 euros average. Not bad for some youngsters and also some yearlings that were unraced. Along with other proven birds.
