Walk In The Park Foal Leads The Way At Fairyhouse

A foal by Walk In The Park topped the second day of the November NH Sale | Tattersalls Ireland

Colts by Walk In The Park (Ire) took the first and third highest prices during the second day of the Tattersalls Ireland November National Hunt Sale at Fairyhouse on Sunday. Lot 215, consigned by Thistletown Stud and a son of listed hurdle winner Poppy Kay (GB) (Kayf Tara {GB}), brought €52,000 from Abbeylands Farm. Earlier in the day, Yellowford Farm offered a bay son of Chesapeake (Fr) (Network {Ger}) (lot 305), who caught the eye of Kieran Shields for €47,000. His dam is a half-sister to dual graded-winning hurdler Bleu Berry (Fr) (Special Kaldoun {Ire}).

Splitting the duo was lot 225, a Blue Bresil (Fr) colt out of the placed hurdler Onefortherose (Ire) (Doyen {Ire}). The half-brother to G1 Guinness H. Chase hero Patricks Park (Ire) (Insatiable {Ire}) was knocked down to Ian Ferguson from the draft of Clonbonny Stud.

A total of 233 weanlings went through the ring on Sunday, the first of five days of foals, with 170 (73%) sold for a gross of €2,346,800. The average dipped four points to €13,805, while the median rose 18% to €11,750.

The five-day foal session of the November NH Sale continues on Monday, beginning at 10 a.m.
