Lot 506, Karisto | Tattersalls Ireland

The Tattersalls Ireland July Store Sale ended with 163 horses sold of 250 horses offered (65.2%) during the Part II session on Thursday. The gross came in at €1,074,300, with an average of €6,591 and a median of €5,000.

Topping Thursday's proceedings was lot 506, a dark bay gelding by Stormy River (Fr) named Karisto (Fr) at €30,000. James Doyle of Baltimore Stables signed for him under the D/J Bloodstock banner from the draft of Mocklershill Stables.

A gelding by Affinisea (Ire) (lot 534) was next at €25,000 from the Moyfinn Stud draft. Steven Crawford raised his hand for the relative of the stakes winner and Grade 3-placed Morley Street (Ire) (Deep Run {GB}).

Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins said, “What a summer of store sales… it's been spectacular. Finally after two years our sales returned to where they belong on the sales calendar and each one of them told their own hugely successful story. This week's July Store Sale firmly cemented its position in purchasers' diaries and the significant increase witnessed in turnover, average and median justifies the move from an August date.

“All these stats and achievements couldn't be reached if it wasn't for our vendors who supply the goods. It has been simply incredible what we have witnessed at Tattersalls Ireland this summer and it is a true reflection of the superb quality of National Hunt horses being produced by Irish and UK breeders and consignors. We are extremely grateful to our vendors who have entrusted us with their top-class stock and our returns this year only proves that we deliver.

“Likewise, our thanks must also go out to each purchaser who flocked to Fairyhouse and dug deep to fill their stables. There was an extensive range of buyers involved across each sale and at every level. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the team for their hard work and Charles O'Neill and the ITM team for all their support.”
