May Store Sale
Tuesday 15 May 2018 at 10.30am
Strong first edition of the New May Store Sale The inaugural one-day Tattersalls Ireland May Store Sale got off to a positive start achieving an aggregate of €2,246,600 for 148 horses sold, a median price of €13,000, an average price of €15,180 and a clearance rate of 76%. The top price of €65,000 was given for a gelding by the late Fame And Glory (Lot 110 above) offered by the day's leading consignor Peter Nolan Bloodstock (below). Widely expected to be one of the day's leading lights, and welcomed by a packed sale ring, the gelding did not disappoint the audience and it was agent Mouse O'Ryan who emerged victorious from the bidding process. "He is a lovely athletic sort," said O'Ryan, secured the three-year-old for €65,000. "He was my pick of the sale - and he made his money! He will be trained in Ireland." O'Ryan added: "The sire is flying - I have bought a few by him and he is a great loss." The April-born bay gelding is the second foal out of the Flying Legend mare Flying Flame from the family of the talented NH and Flat performers Arctic Weather, Lady Lahar, Jallota and Miss Lahar. Fame And Glory has enjoyed a rich vein of recent form courtesy of two impressive point-to-point winners and a Jonjo O'Neill-trained NH Flat race winner, Kitikat, who won on his career debut. The next best price of €42,000 was a tie between another Fame And Glory gelding also bought by O'Ryan - a Gaynesford Stud offered three-year-old out of an Old Vic own-sister to the Grade 3-winning and Grade 1-placed Ninetieth Minute (Lot 215) and a son of Shirocco (Lot 121 below) bought by Kevin Ross Bloodstock with trainer Nick Gifford. Out of the black-type placed mare Gli Gli and from the further family of the Gold Cup and Sun Alliance Novice Chase winner Garrison Savannah, he was sold by Castledillon Stud. "He is a lovely athletic and scopey horse," said Ross. "He has a good pedigree and will be trained by Nick." Three horses fetched €40,000; another son of Shirocco (Lot 108) bought by Paul Cashman of Rathbarry Stud, who stand the son of Monsun; a Fame And Glory (Lot 43) gelding bought by Aiden Murphy, as well as a gelding by Blue Bresil named Smurphy Enki (Lot 91) purchased by the point-to-point establishment Monbeg Stables. "We have not had one by Blue Bresil before," said purchaser Eamon Doyle of Monbeg. "This is a very racy horse and looks very sharp. We'll take him home, get him into the system and hopefully he will make up into an early four-year-old." At the conclusion of the sale, Tattersalls Ireland Managing Director Roger Casey commented; "The May Store Sale has unquestionably been a success and the decision to move Part II of the Derby Sale to this stand-alone date in May has provided our loyal and supportive vendors with the opportunity for their horse to stand out at a one-day select sale where the focus was placed on the individual. It has also given purchasers an opportunity to buy stores early in the season and allows them the additional time to produce these horses for a spring campaign as four year olds next year. "We welcomed an active bench of domestic buyers and an industrious contingent from the UK with many new faces at Tattersalls Ireland today no doubt also incentivised by eligibility of all lots catalogued for the George Mernagh Memorial Sales Bumper and the exciting Irish EBF Auction Hurdle Race Series. "The results in the sales ring speak for themselves and it is extremely pleasing to conclude the sale with a healthy clearance rate of 76% backed up by an average of €15,180, an aggregate of €2,246,600 and a top lot of €65,000 in this sales initial year and this presents us with a real opportunity to progress the May Store Sale further in years to come. We now look forward with great anticipation to the next sale that forms part of the Tattersalls Ireland Store Sale Portfolio, the market leading Derby Sale which takes place on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 June."

February NH Sale 2018
Tuesday 30 January 2018 starting at 10.30am.
Strong trade and consistent growth at the February NH Sale Tattersalls Ireland February NH Sale produced solid trade throughout the one-day session, producing the best set of returns on record for a one day sale despite having less horses catalogued than in 2017. The aggregate increased by 13% to €1,882,794, while the median of €7,500 and average of €11,480 grew by 4% and 17% respectively. For the second time in three years, Kenilworth House Stud sold the top-priced yearling - this year a Flemensfirth colt out of Erins Stage (King's Theatre), a full-sister to the dual Grade 3 winner Theatre Guide, who sold for €62,000 (Lot 187).
After the sale, Gerry Ross of Kenilworth with Diana Vasicek, said: "We did not enter him for the November NH Sale as he was a May foal, but he has done so well over the winter. "We bought the grand-dam Erintante out of Francois Doumen's yard and bred this colt's dam Erins Stage and Theatre Guide. "Erins Benefit, the four-year-old half-sister to this colt, is in pre-training and we will look to run her in a bumper this spring," continued Ross, adding: "The mare is in-foal to Shantou, and will likely be rested for next year." Purchaser Flash Conroy of Glenvale Stud (pictured below) said: "The colt is a lovely sort. He is by a very good stallion, and out of mare by the good broodmare sire King's Theatre."
The Martaline three-quarters brother to the recent Cleeve Hurdle (G2) winner Agrapart sold for €47,500, bought by Richard Frisby in a private sale (Lot 126).
The April-born colt is out of Agathe Du Berlais, a Poliglote half-sister to Agrapart, and was bred and sold by Patrick Fennessy of Ballinaroone Stud.
"I bought the dam in training in France," said Fennessy. "This foal has been a lovely individual from day one, very straightforward, very athletic." Agrapart has collected his two Grade 2 victories since the turn of the year, the latter just three days ago. The mare is due to visit the Annshoon Stud-based stallion Pillar Coral this spring - he is a Zamindar half-brother to Martaline. The nine-year-old King's Theatre mare Solita fetched €58,000 (Lot 278A). The seven-time winner, Grade 3-placed over hurdles and a winner of the Greenogue Novice Chase (Gr.2) for trainer Paul Nolan, was bought by Rathbarry Stud's Donal White.
White (pictured below) said: "She is a sweet mare and ticked all the right boxes - she has size and scope and was a top-class racemare. I bought her for Rathbarry Stud to go to our new stallion Karpino, he won over seven furlongs and a mile so will inject a bit of speed into the pedigree. She is a good cross for Karpino who is by Cape Cross out of a half-sister to Milan."
At the conclusion of the sale, Managing Director of Tattersalls Ireland Roger Casey commented; "Following on from the overwhelming trade at the recent November NH Sale, there was an expectation that we would witness a strong edition of the February NH Sale and today's sale met those expectations producing an improved set of statistics from a more condensed catalogue. The turnover is the best on record for a one-day February NH Sale, up 13% on 2017 and the sale also surpassed last year's top price on three occasions and the number of horses fetching €20,000 increased from 17 to 29. We welcomed our usual strong cast of UK clients along with our regular domestic purchasers who contributed to an increased clearance rate of 64% up 12% on last year. With an encouraging start to the sales year at Tattersalls Ireland for 2018, we now look forward to the much anticipated Store Sales Portfolio beginning with the new one-day select May Sale which will take place on Tuesday 15 May. The sale will be catalogued alphabetically by dam and will start with a unique starting letter "S".

Donal White manager of Glenview Stud commented on the stud's purchase: "She is a sweet mare and ticked all the right boxes - she has size and scope and was a top-class racemare.
"I bought her for Rathbarry Stud to go to our new stallion Karpino, he won over seven furlongs and a mile so will inject a bit of speed into the pedigree. She is a good cross for Karpino who is by Cape Cross out of a half-sister to Milan." (20:31)
Lot 261: the Saddler Maker colt out of Melancholy Hill sold by Gaynestown Stud makes €46,000. He is bought by Kieran Shields.

Lot 242: Getaway's progeny were hotly sought-after at the November NH Sale, and the trend has continued - this colt offered by Ennel Bloodstock made €17,000.
Out of the French-raced Listed-placed Line Perle, he was bought by Orchardstown Farms/Fethard Bloodstock.
The sire has been enjoying strong racecourse success - most recently by Getabird, a Grade 2 winner at Punchestown. (19:26)
Lot 218: Eugene O'Sullivan spends €14,000 on the Soldier Of Fortune filly from Lough Na Sollis Stud.

Lot 187: Kenilworth House Stud, which topped the February Sale in 2016, sells another at the top of the market - the Flemensfirth colt out of Erins Stage (King's Theatre) fetching €62,000.
"He is lovely sort," said buyer Flash Conroy of Glenvale Stud. "He is by a very good stallion, and out of mare by the good broodmare sire King's Theatre."
Gerry Ross of Kenilworth, with Diana Vasicek, were all smiles.
"We did not enter him for the November Sale as he was a May foal, he has done so well over the winter.
"We bought the grand-dam Erintante, the dam of Theatre Guide, from Francois Doumen.
"Erins Benefit, the four-year-old half-sister to this colt is in pre-training and we will look to run her in a bumper.
"The mare is back in-foal to Shantou, and will likely be rested for next year." (17:07)
Lot 153: the only lot offered today by sire Blue Bresil makes €24,000 and is bought by Robert James.
He was sold by the British-based Yorton Farm, which stands the son of Smadoun.
The colt is out of the Listed-winning mare Blue Ride (King's Ride).
Blue Bresil is sire of December's Grade 1 Ryanair Hurdle winner Mick Jazz. (16:15)
Lot 148: Juliet Minton, signing as Highflyer Bloodstock, buys the Westerner colt out of a half-sister to the multiple Grade winner and the Grade 1 Scilly Isle Chase runner-up Turpin Green for €31,000.
"He is for Gleadhill house stud," said Minton. "Trevor Hemmings owned Turpin Green and this horse was selected from the catalogue - he is a nice individual and a good walker too."
He was sold by Michael Tallon. (15:38)
Lot 132: out of a half-sister to Fundamentalist, the Presenting colt from Rahinston Farm & Stud makes €38,000. David Yearsley was the successful purchaser.
It is also the family of Grade 3 winner Fine Parchment, the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle winner Barters Hill, the 28-time winner Badsworth Boy and Grade 1 NH Flat race winner Our Bid. (15:13)
Lot 126: the three-quarters Martaline brother to the recent Cleeve Hurdle (G2) winner Agrapart sells for €47,500m, bought by Richard Frisby in a private sale.
He was sold by Patrick Fennessy of Ballinaroone Stud.
"I bought the dam in training in France," said Fennessy. "This foal has been a lovely individual from day one, very straightforward, very athletic.
"He did have an entry in the November Sale, but I didn't feel he was just ready at that point, he was growing."
The patience paid off as not only has the youngster done well in the intervening period, but Agrapart has collected his two Grade 2 victories.
With the Grade 2 successes under Agrapart's belt it might have caused Fennessy to reconsider and keep the foal through to sell as a three-year-old store, but as the breeder explained he has more of the family at home.
The mare is due to visit Annshoon Stud's Pillar Coral this spring, the Zamindar half-brother to Martaline. (14:55)
Lot 118: the good-looking colt by Walk In The Park, sold by Oliver Loughlin, is bought by Tim O'Neill for €21,000.
