Arthur, Thursday's topper | Tattersalls Ireland

A store by Lucky Lion (Ger) already named Arthur (Ger) (lot 358) topped the Tattersalls Ireland July Store Sale Part II to bring the curtain down on the sale company's store sale season on Thursday.

Derek O'Connor made a winning bid of €32,000 on behalf of Eoin Barry/Sean Aherne for the son of the multiple listed-winning jumper and Grade 3-placed Ajesha (Ger) from the Liss House consignment.

Glen Stables' lot 418, a grey gelding by Yeats (Ire) was next on the buyers' sheets at €27,000. He was picked up by Ashgrove Stables/Darren O'Dwyer Bloodstock.

Rounding out the top three was €24,000 purchase lot 526, a gelded son of Getaway (Ger) and Misty Rose (Ire) (Presenting {GB}) from Mountain View Stud. The Crawford Bros signed the ticket on the relation to Grade 1-winning chaser Ballycasey (Ire) (Presenting {GB}).

The one-day Part II Sale grossed €752,500 for 125 sold of 224 offered (56%). The average dipped 9% to €6,020 and the median was static at €5,000.

Simon Kerins CEO of Tattersalls Ireland said, “What a summer it has been, culminating in a vibrant July Store Sale–the finale of our three successful store sales in 2023. The journey began with the May Store Sale, where we welcomed an impressive turnout of buyers who eagerly sought out quality individuals.

We proudly presented the market-leading Derby Sale, which lived up to its reputation as the pinnacle of store sales. Witnessing, yet again, the highest-priced National Hunt store sold anywhere this year at €265,000 was phenomenal, along with 33 horses achieving €100,000 or more, and five horses fetching €200,000 or above–both records for any store sale this year. Significantly, the average of €53,583 set the highest mark of any store sale in 2023.

“And now, as we conclude the July Store Sale, we reflect on a strong trade which produced a record clearance rate and figures which dropped marginally behind last year's record-breaking sale.”
