Day 1 topper Lot 89Tattersalls

The first session of the Tattersalls Ireland November NH Sale kicked off on Sunday with progeny by Blue Bresil (Fr)–sire of the six-time Grade 1 winner and November NH Sale graduate Constitution Hill (GB)–in high demand as two of his colts took the top two spots, as well five of the day's top ten prices overall.

Lot 89, a bay colt out of the Shirocco (Ger) mare Bee Yanka (GB), brought €68,000 online from Timmy Hillman to be the day's highest price. The March foal was consigned by Clonmult on behalf of breeders Richard and Mai Nolan of Old Court Stud.

“We were advised by Donal [White] to send Bee Yanka to Blue Bresil and she has visited the sire three times now,” the couple said jointly. “The stock that has come from her has been so magnificent, and we just kept going back to the stallion–she is an amazing breeder.”

Kieran Shields and his daughter Kate went to €67,000 for Lot 20, the Blue Bresil colt out of the Listed-placed Rolanna (Ire) (Strategic Prince {Ire}), from the Thistletown Stud consignment.

“He is a good walker, by the right sire, is a good size and he has been bought as a pinhooking prospect,” Kate said.
Coolamurry Stud consigned Lot 80, a colt by Walk In The Park (Ire) out of the Aura About You (Ire) (Supreme Leader), who was bought by pinhook purchaser Michael Fitzpatrick, signing as J C Bloodstock, for €60,000.
