Demand strong for Andover Hall's progeny
Andover Hall's progeny were sought after by buyers at the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale on Sunday afternoon, with four lots by the champion Northern Hemisphere stallion selling for an average of $30,125.
The highest price paid for an Andover Hall yearling was $50,000 for the stunning brown colt Aldebaran Dominic (pictured).
Sold by Aldebaran Lodge, the colt is out of the former Victoria Trotters Oaks winner Aldebaran Dream and is a half sibling to last season's Vicbred Super Series winner Aldebaran Eve.
Andover Hall's New Zealand yearlings sold equally well at last month's two New Zealand Yearling Sales with six lots selling for an average of $32,333 and a top lot, a colt out of a full sister to former NZ Harness Horse of the Year I Can Doosit, selling to champion NZ trainer Mark Purdon for $60,000.
