Progeny Of Teofilo Popular At Tattersalls Online

Teorie | Tattersalls Online

A pair of sons by Teofilo (Ire) filled the top two places during Thursday's Tattersalls Online September Sale.

Topping the sale was the 3-year-old colt Teorie (Ire) (lot 24) who was knocked down for 45,000gns to Fergal O'Brien Racing and his stable jockey Paddy Brennan. Already a winner from five starts, the colt is a full-brother to the winning Theodulus (Ire) and is from the extended family of G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Gear Up (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}). He was consigned by Jim Bolger's Glebe House Stables.

“We bought a lovely horse last year from Mr. Bolger called Dancila by the same sire and this horse had a good profile, I loved his win at Leopardstown,” said O'Brien. “We have an owner who wants a juvenile hurdler so we thought we'd give it a go. He'll go back to Paddy Brennan's, and we'll probably have him castrated, then we'll start jumping him to go for juvenile hurdles.”

Scott Lowther paid 30,000gns for the 3-year-old gelding That's Jet (Ire), who was offered by O'Sullivan Bloodstock. Lot 25 has placed once over hurdles, and his dam, Floating Along (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}), is a half-sister to G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest winner King's Apostle (Ire) (King's Best) and G2 Lartigue Hurdle scorer Politicise (Ire) (Camelot {GB}).

“My trainer Daragh Bourke had watched a few of his races in Ireland and he'd come recommended from a couple of guys over there too. I'll look for a juvenile hurdle for him–we'll maybe aim him for Wetherby in October although he looks very well handicapped on the Flat as well I must admit.”

The progeny of Blue Point (Ire) have been in demand in the sales ring with his 35 first-crop winners anchored by four stakes winner, among them Big Evs (Ire), who will race in the G2 Carlsberg Danish Pilsner Flying Childers S. on Friday. Lot 8, the filly Raknah (Ire), was bought by BBA Ireland for 25,000gns from Andrew Balding's Park House Stables. She has placed once in three runs, and is out of a full-sister to G3 Ballyroan S. hero Stellar Mass (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}).

The second Blue Point to sell was 15,000gns buy Desert Master (GB) (lot 35), who has hit the board five times in eight runs to date. From James Tate's Jamesfield Stables, the bay is out of the listed-placed Iffraaj (GB) mare Al Fareej (Ire) and caught the eye of Northgate Lodge Stud.

De Bruyne (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}) (lot 34) was snapped up for 25,000gns to Gassim Ghazali from Ed Walker Racing. The gelding sports a win on the all-weather and is a grandson of Listed Sandy Lane S. winner Danehill Destiny (GB) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}), who was also third twice at Group 3 level.

From a catalogue of 91, 81 horses were offered with 47 sold (58%) for a gross of 377,700gns. The average was 8,036gns and the median was 4,000gns.
