Lot 41: becomes the first lot at the new sale to make a six-figure sum, the daughter of Camacho fetching €100,000, bought by Richard Brown.

"She did a very good breeze and was well clear on times – from a breeze up of 200 horses that is impressive and you have to take note.
"The last we bought who was so far clear on figures was Pretty Baby. She was for Sheikh Rashid and this filly is for him too. I don't know yet where she is going to be trained."
Pretty Baby is now a dual Group 3 winner and is rated 105.

February National Hunt Sale 2019
Turnover best on record for a one-day February NH Sale The first Tattersalls Ireland sale of 2019, the one-day February NH Sale, produced highly satisfying returns - the median that matched 2018's figure of €7,500, and an increased average of €11,516 (1%). The 36-lot larger catalogue produced an increased aggregate and the best on record for a one-day February NH Sale of €1,911,600 (+3%).
The day's top-priced foal was a colt by the leading British-based sire Kayf Tara (Lot 257). He was bred and sold by Rahinston Stud and is the first foal out of the Kalanisi mare Molo, a half-sister to the farm's star performer Banjaxed Girl.
"He was a stand-out," said purchaser Katie Rudd, who had to go to €62,000 to acquire the February-born colt. "He is by a very good sire and has a very good pedigree." Joey Logan Bloodstock spent €60,000 on a Shantou colt out of the Oscar mare Ned's Joy, an own-sister to The Tullow Tank and a half-sister to the Grand National (Gr.3) winner Many Clouds (Lot 274) and €48,000 on a colt by Walk In The Park and out of the Listed-winning mare and the Gr.2 placed Stephanie Frances (King's Theatre).

Trade was very strong where purchasers believed that the individual and the pedigree justified their valuations. The market continues to be selective at the middle to lower end. "With store sale inspections now at an advanced stage, nominations for both the May Sale and the Derby Sale will close next Monday, 4 February 2019." (22:33)

"Molo was sold at the Derby Sale to owner Robin Geffen," said Harry Fowler, "and went into training with David Pipe for whom she won two races.
"She was sent to the horse-in-training sale and so we put a partnership together and bought her back. She went to trainer Charlie Longsdon with the aim of picking up some black-type. Unfortunately that didn't happen, but as she was in the UK we covered her with Kayf Tara.
"She did not go in-foal then and she went back to the stallion in year two – and this is the result. We are delighted, he is a lovely colt and it is a very special pedigree.
"My wife Lorna runs the farm at home and the whole team has done a wonderful job with him."
