Lot 1073, a son of Knight Of Thunder | Tattersalls

Night Of Thunder (Ire)'s progeny proved popular throughout the first two books of Tattersalls, and a chestnut colt (lot 1073) hammered for 575,000gns to Jamie McCalmont on behalf of M V Magnier/White Birch near the end of the session. Offered by breeder Mountarmstrong Stud, he is a son of Listed Prix Six Perfections heroine Asidious Alexander (Ire) (Windsor Knot {Ire}), who is a half-sister to the stakes winner and Group 2-placed Accepted (Ire) (Approve {Ire}). His dam also gained group black type with placed efforts in both the G3 Prix du Calvados and G3 Prix d'Aumale. Grade I winners Exbourne (Explodent), Expelled (Explodent), and Affirmed Success (Affirmed) are under the fourth dam.
