Lot 259 | Tattersalls Ireland

At the close of trade on Tuesday, the Tattersalls Ireland February National Hunt Sale saw a record median of €9,250, an increase of 23% on last year’s mark. The gross for the 168 lots sold was €1,928,950, while the average was €11,482. The top price was €60,000 for a yearling colt (lot 259) by No Risk At All (Fr) at €60,000. Consigned by Rahinston Stud, the son of Sardagna (Fr) (Medaaly {GB}) was knocked down to Ryan Mahon and Colm Donlon. The bay is a half-brother to Amore Alato (GB) (Winged Love {Ire}), a listed winner over fences and third in the G1 32nd Red Kauto Star Novices’ Chase.

“Following on from last year’s record breaking one-day February National Hunt Sale, today’s sale saw strong trade for choice lots, and it was particularly pleasing for the sale to produce the highest median on record,” said Tattersalls Ireland CEO Matt Mitchell said.
