“Overall, the sale went well, but it could have been better. For the two year olds, the prices were below what we had expected but TOBA was having two year olds in the sale for the first time in 23 years, so I expect it to improve going forward. “When all factors are considered are considered the sale was a success overall compared to where we were last year,” chief executive officer of TOBA, Roshane Douse told this publication.
