A colt by Blue Bresil and out of Maryota | Tattersalls Ireland

Walshtown Stables' yearling colt by Blue Bresil (Fr) brought a sale-topping €62,000 from Glenvale Stud during the Tattersalls Ireland February National Hunt Sale on Tuesday.

The son of Maryota (Fr) (Martaline {GB}) (lot 113) is a half-brother to G1 Tolworth Novices' Hurdle third Mr Glass (Ire) (Sholokhov {Ire}). Under the second dam is multiple Grade 1-winning hurdler Yanworth (GB) (Norse Dancer {Ire}).

From the same consignment was another Blue Bresil colt (lot 7) which attracted a winning bid of €50,000 from Niall Bleahen. The bay is a half-brother to G1 Ellier Champion Novice Chase winner Feronily (Ire) (Getaway {Ger}), as the duo are out of Vickeeto (Ire) (Old Vic {GB}).

Walk In The Park (Ire)'s son of Fleur d'Ainay (Fr) (Poliglote {GB}) (lot 66) caught the eye of Grange Stud at €43,000. His dam captured a Grade 1 chase in France, and is already responsible for Zurekin (Ire) (Martaline {GB}), a listed winner and third in the G2 Prix La Barka Hurdle.

The one-day sale grossed €1,039,200 for 93 sold from 162 offered (57%). The average was €11,174 (-10%) and the median was €7,000 (-18%).

Tattersalls Ireland's CEO Simon Kerins said, “The February National Hunt Sale marked a satisfactory start to the trade for the beginning of 2024. We would also like to congratulate Walshtown Stables for yet again bringing a quality draft to market.”
