The BBAG sales complex | Emma Berry

Baden-Baden's BBAG October Sale concluded its two-day run on Saturday, and the top six lots were all consigned by the sale's leading vendor Gestut Ohlerweiherhof.

Wonderful Art (Ire) (lot 35) was well in front on the leader board during Friday's session, bringing a €100,000 winning bid from Panorama Bloodstock to top the sale as a whole. By Caravaggio, the 2-year-old filly is out of the dual stakes winner Wish You Well (Ger) (Soldier Hollow {GB}).

The Soldier Hollow (GB) filly Salve's Secret (Fr) (lot 24) was knocked down for €65,000 to Albrecht, to take second honours. Tracing to the German blue blood Salve Regina (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}), the filly was produced by Salve Stella (Ire) (Shamardal).

Rounding out the top three lots was Saturday's topper, the winning Salve Le Meer (Ger) (Le Havre {Ire}) (lot 241), who went to Liberty Breeding 2023 for €60,000. A 4-year-old, she is a half-sister to G3 Derby-Trial winner Sea Of Sands (Ger) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), and is from the same female family as Salve's Secret.

Michael and Susanne Volz's Ohlerweiherhof operation sold 52 of their 59 lots offered (88%) during the sale for a gross of €947,000 and an average of €18,212. The leading buyer was Wilhelm Feldman, who signed for eight lots worth €338,000.

At the end of the sale, 200 lots were sold of 279 offered (71.7%) for a gross of €2,359,000. The average was €11,800 and the median was €7,000.
