The Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Manitoba Division) Yearling Sale posted significant across-the-board gains on Aug. 22, led by a $52,000 filly by perennial leading provincial sire Going Commando.

A total of 22 yearlings changed hands for revenues of $209,800 (Canadian), up 238 percent from last year’s auction, when 14 yearlings changed hands for $62,000. The average sale price rose 115 percent to $9,536 from $4,428, while the buyback rate improved to 35 percent after finishing at 52 percent in 2020.

Barry Arnason bought out his fellow breeders to purchase the sale-topper, a Going Commando filly, for $52,000.

Offered as Hip 10, the filly is out of the stakes-winning Pionnering mare High Pioneer, whose five foals to race are all winners. Four of those winners are by Going Commando, including stakes winner and Sovereign Award finalist Hidden Grace. Grade 3 winner Carborundum is in her extended family.

The Manitoba-bred filly was consigned by Cam Ziprick, Charles Fouillard, and Arnason.

Going Commando, who stands at Ziprick Thoroughbreds in Russel, Manitoba, was also responsible for the sale’s second-highest price, Arthur Roy bought Hip 30, a filly out of the Mineshaft mare Runaway Delite, for $21,500.
