AN overall satisfying edition of the 2021 BBAG Yearling Sale was overshadowed a little when the top three lots through the sale ring were buybacks.

They were the Soldier Hollow full-sister to Dschingis Secret (€700,000), a Sea The Stars half-sister to German Derby winners Windstoss and Weltstar (€680,000), and a Frankel son of the Pivotal Group 3 winning mare Calyxa (€475,000).
