Belfast Banter Added to ThoroughBid Online Sale


Belfast Banter | ThoroughBid

Grade 1-winning hurdler Belfast Banter (Ire) (Jeremy) will be offered during the Nov. 23 ThoroughBid Online Sale. A winner of the Country Hurdle at Cheltenham and the G1 Top Novices' Hurdle at Aintree. He will be offered from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and is the only lot catalogued. The bay will run in the G1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle a few days after the sale.

Peter Fahey, trainer of Belfast Banter, said, “Belfast Banter has been an absolute star. Any horse that lands you a Grade 1 and a Cheltenham Festival win is very special, and he still looks to have his best days ahead of him.

“Being only a 6-year-old, he still has plenty of scope and it'll be exciting for whoever secures him at the sale, particularly with an entry in the Fighting Fifth. Horses of his calibre don't come around too often, so I'll be hoping to continue training him for his new owners.”

Will Kinsey, co-founder of ThoroughBid, said, “We're delighted to be entrusted with such a high-profile horse, and to reflect the flexibility of ThoroughBid we have decided to offer Belfast Banter in a standalone sale.”
