“The Keeneland Association may have to shop for a new roof for their venerable sales pavilion after the dispersal of the estate of the late Edward P. “Ned” Evans’ Spring Hill Farm, consigned by Lane’s End as agent, blew the first session of the 2011 Keeneland November breeding sale right through it on Monday.

Led by a new record North American weanling price of $2.6-million for a half-sister by Medaglia d’Oro to Evans-bred 2005 Horse of the Year Saint Liam, and $4.2-million for Evans’ 2007 Ashland Stakes (G1) winner Christmas Kid, in foal to Bernardini, the dispersal sold 63 horses for $40,684,500, an average of $645,786. That brought the total for the Evans dispersal to date to 114 horses sold for a $47,211,500. That breaks the world record for a dispersal of $46,912,500 set by the Nelson Bunker Hunt dispersal in 1988.
