The Minnesota Thoroughbred Association Yearling Sale concluded a steady renewal on Sept. 8, led by an $82,000 colt by Street Sense.

A total of 44 yearlings changed hands during the auction for revenues of $548,000, up 31 percent from last year when 33 horses sold for $416,900. The average sale price fell one percent to $12,454 from $12,600, while the buyback rate landed at eight percent compared with 18 percent in 2018.

Lothenbach Stables purchased the sale-topper, an $82,000 Street Sense colt out of the Grade 1-winning Sea Hero mare Cindy's Hero. The Minnesota-bred is a half-brother to Grade 3 winner Delegation, stakes winner Hero on Saturday, and stakes-placed Cindys Vindication.

The colt's extended family includes Chilean champion All Glory, Grade 1 winner Fourty Niners Son, and Grade 2 winner Arklow.

Dove Hill Farm consigned the sale-topper as agent for Tom Baxter.

The same operation was also the sale's leading consignor by both gross, moving seven horses for $190,500. Lothenbach Stables was the top buyer, with two purchases totaling $127,000.
