Pour Moi Filly Tops Festival Sale At £370,000

A good week for Henry de Bromhead | Racingfotos.com

Henry de Bromhead celebrated his two Grade 1 winners at Cheltenham this week by adding the top lot of the Tattersalls Cheltenham Festival Sale to his string. 

The daughter of Pour Moi (Ire), named Kudasheva (Ire), was an eye-catching winner on debut in a point-to-point in Ireland on March 6 and brought a final bid of £370,000. Offered as lot 18 by Pat Doyle's Suirview Stables, the 4-year-old is out of a Hernando (Ire) half-sister to Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Don Cossack (Ger) (Sholokhov {Ire}).

Gordon Elliott will take charge of two of the sale's leading lots after going to £350,000 for Better Days Ahead (Ire) (Milan {GB}), a 4-year-old gelding sold by Warren Ewing of Bernice Stables, whose previous graduates include Tuesday's track-record-breaking Constitution Hill (GB) (Blue Bresil {FR}), winner of the G1 Supreme Novices' Hurdle. Lot 12 was another recent winner from his sole start at the end of February and he will race for Noel and Valerie Moran of Bective Stud.

Elliott also bought lot 5, the 5-year-old gelding Stellar Story (Ire) (Shantou), for £310,000 from Donnchadh Doyle's Monbeg Stables. 

The sale, which took place in the parade ring after racing, turned over £3,353,000 in just over an hour for the 23 lots sold at an average of £145,783.
