Lot 1A in the ring | Tattersalls Ireland

The second edition of the Tattersalls Ireland July Store Sale built upon last year's inaugural sale with increases across the board. Featuring an expanded catalogue, 190 lots sold from 270 offered (70%), up two ticks from 2021. The gross grew by 90% to €2,841,100, with additional increases in both average (€14,953, +43%) and median (€11,750, +47%).

Two lots shared topper honours, with Rathbarry Stud's lot 1A, the second lot through the ring, bringing €65,000 on the bid of Tom Malone and Paul Nicholls. A gelded son of Blue Bresil (Fr) and Grade 2 hurdle winner Jessber's Dream (Ire) (Milan {GB}) who also placed second at the Grade 1 level, the March-foaled 3-year-old is his dam's first foal.

Just a handful of lots from the final store, lot 293 equaled that amount on the bid of Nicky Richards. Consigned by Liss House, the son of Buck's Boum (Fr) and the Early March (GB) mare Implora (Fr) is a half-sister to the Grade 3-placed Desinvolte (Fr) (Early March {GB}).

Third on the buyers' sheets was lot 269. Knocked down to Hugo Merienne for €60,000, the son of Network (Ger) was part of the Wood Hall Stables draft. The dark bay is from the same family as G3 Prix Hypothese Hurdle scorer Dos Santos (Fr) (Smadoun {Fr}).

Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins said, “It is fantastic to host the July Store Sale on it's intended date for the first time. The sale has recorded significant gains on last year, sale turnover almost double of 2021's inaugural sale as well as huge rises in average and median. The results fully vindicate the decision to stage this sale in July and the phenomenal footfall seen at Tattersalls Ireland today demonstrates that both Irish and UK purchasers fully support the sale.

“We must thank our vendors for getting behind the idea of a mid-summer sale and allowing us to introduce it to the sales calendar in such a vibrant manner. They have supported the sale with some quality stock and their confidence in the sale and the venue has been rewarded.”

Part II of the July Store Sale commences tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.
