The clearance rate of 79 percent was up from 74 percent in 2012.

The top price of $1.975 million on the first day was paid by Ireland's Tom Magnier for a colt by Fastnet Rock from the Peintre Celebre mare Celebria. It was the fifth highest price ever fetched at Karaka.

The top price of day two was for a colt by stallion Pins from Sayyida (Zabeel), sold to Melbourne trainer Peter Moody for $775,000. It was the highest price ever paid at Karaka for a yearling by the sire.
