Altior's Camelot Half-Brother Leads The Way At Land Rover Sale


Lot 93 took top billing on Tuesday | Goffs

A gelding by Camelot (GB) brought a session-topping €300,000 during the first day of the Goffs Land Rover Sale on Tuesday. Offered by Peter Nolan Bloodstock, lot 93, the half-brother to the outstanding Grade 1-winning hurdler Altior (Ire) (High Chaparral {Ire}), was purchased by Mags O'Toole. The 3-year-old bay is a son of the G3 Brandon Hotel H. Hurdle heroine Monte Solaro (Ire) (Key of Luck).

One of 25 lots to make six figures or better, the gelding was followed by lot 229, a son of No Risk At All (Fr) that was snapped up by Henrietta Knight for €195,000 from the draft of Moanmore Stables. Out of dual listed-winning jumper Tangaspeed (Fr) (Vertical Speed {Fr}), the bay is a half-brother to a pair of stakes horses.

The other lot to sell for €150,000 or higher was a gelded son of Blue Bresil (Fr), who caught the eye of Highflyer. Lot 211 was part of the Clonmult Farm consignment and made €150,000. Under the second dam, who won a Grade 2 over fences and was third in the G1 Irish Grand National H. Chase, is listed winner and G1 Champion Bumper NH Flat Race second American Mike (Ire) (Mahler {GB}).
