Walk In The Park Gelding Tops First Day of Tattersalls Ireland November

Lot 166 topped the first day's trade | Tattersalls Ireland

A gelding by Walk In The Park (Ire) (lot 166) topped Sunday's session of the Tattersalls Ireland November National Hunt Sale at €85,000. Out of Windermere Sky (Ire) (Oscar {Ire}), the bay was offered by Walshtown Stables, agent and went to Adrian Costello of Park Farm. Windermere Sky is a full-sister to Lord Windermere (Ire) (Oscar {Ire}), a dual Grade 1 Cheltenham Festival winner and a half to Sub Lieutenant (Ire) (Brian Boru {GB}), a Grade 2 winner over fences and hurdles.

“The sire is one of the leading stallions around at the moment, this horse has a top pedigree, and he is definitely the finest yearling here today,” said Costello. “He is fit to go to any sale, and anyone would be glad to own him, he is definitely a bit special. He will come back to a store sale, with luck the Derby Sale. He is a lovely big horse, he is an athlete all day long.”

Railstown Stud consigned lot 124, a gelding by Soldier of Fortune (Ire)–Mo Bury (Ire) (Overbury {}). Tally-Ho Stud shelled out €68,000 for the bay, who was produced by a half-sister to G1 Gold Cup winner Native River (Ire) (Indian River {Fr}).

The third dearest lot on the day was lot 119, a son of No Risk At All (Fr) already named Cinammon Roll (Fr). From the draft of Ballincurrig House Stud, he caught the eye of Alan Harte at €65,000. His dam is a half-sister to the stakes-placed hurdler Luna Riska (Fr) (No Risk At All {Fr}).

At the conclusion of Sunday's trade, 119 lots sold (68%) from 174 lots offered for a gross of €1,543,850. The average had improved 41% to €12,974 and the median increased 136% to €8,500.
