Record Cheltenham November Sale

Arctic Bresil | Tattersalls

Sales returned to Cheltenham Racecourse on Friday for the first time since the pandemic, and the Cheltenham November Sale produced record results. Fifty horses were sold for £4,288,500-a record for any select point-to-point sale–at an average of £85,770 and a clearance rate of 93%.

Topping trade was the 4-year-old Arctic Bresil (GB) (Blue Bresil {Fr}) (lot 28), who finished second in a highly regarded maiden point-to-point at Tattersalls Farm. He was bought by Gerry Hogan for £305,000. In total, 14 lots realised £100,000 or more from 12 individual buyers.

“This evening's sale was the first to be held alongside racing at Cheltenham since the onset of COVID-19 and the vibrancy and depth of trade has been remarkable, reaffirming the unique appeal of selling point-to-pointers at the home of British jumps racing,” said Tattersalls Head Of Sales Matthew Prior. “There has been a real sense of anticipation that has built towards the November meeting, and it was a pleasure to once again see many of the National Hunt fraternity out in force at the sale in recent days, which has been borne out in this evening's frenzied activity.

“No doubt the outstanding success of the Tattersalls Cheltenham graduates continues to drive this demand as witnessed by the nine Cheltenham Festival winners in 2021 alone. The Irish and British point-to-point handlers are at the heart of this success story and as ever we are indebted to them for once again supporting the sale with a catalogue of real quality.”
