Dr. Oscar Benavides, agent for St. George Stables, paid $92,000 for the broodmare Surmount, in foal to Into Mischief, to top Wednesday's ninth session of the 70th annual Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

Kingswood Farm, agent, consigned the 5-year-old stakes-placed daughter of Speightstown who is out of the Grade 1-placed Siphon (BRZ) mare Ms Louisett.

Session figures continued to reflect overall increases in the November Sale.

A total of 271 horses were sold for $3,998,100, a 39-percent increase from the same session in 2012.

The average price of $14,753 and the median price of $10,500 marked increases of 30 and 50 percent, respectively.

Through nine days of the 10-day November Sale, 2,208 horses have sold for $194,313,100, a 39 percent increase from the gross through the corresponding period in 2012.

The average of $88,004 is 26 percent higher than last year. The $40,000 median is 33 percent above last year.

The top-priced weanling on Wednesday was a colt by Mizzen Mast that sold for $52,000 to Machmer Hall and Wynnstay Farm. Blandford Stud, agent, consigned the colt, who is out of Despot, by Wavering Monarch.

Two buyers each spent $115,000 during the session to lead all buyers: Cromwell Bloodstock, agent, which purchased four horses, and Dr. Benavides, agent for St. George Stables, which acquired two horses.

Adena Springs was the leading consignor, selling 43 horses for $461,100.

The November Sale concludes Thursday with a session that begins at 10 a.m. ET. The sale is streamed live at Keeneland.com
