Record-Priced Colt Tops First Session Of Relocated Tattersalls Ireland September Sale

It proved to be a record-breaking first session for the relocated two-day Tattersalls Ireland September Sale when Boherguy Stud’s colt by Teofilo (Lot 165) fetched €351,000 (US$413,063), a new record price for the sale.

He was bought by Mick Kinane, signing on behalf of the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the day’s leading buyer by aggregate spend.

The colt, bred by trainer Jim Bolger, is a full-brother to two Group 3 winners – the Group 3 Eyrefield Stakes winner Guaranteed and this year’s G3 Acomb Stakes winner Gear Up, whose success is an update on the catalog page.

The March-born yearling was sold by Bolger’s grand-daughter Clare Manning of Boherguy Stud in just her second season consigning yearlings.

“He has been a superstar since he has been here,” Manning said. “He has the pedigree and the physique, he was busy and had a number of vettings, but it was difficult in this climate to gauge what he would fetch.

“He came to prep eight weeks ago and has always been straightforward, he is one of those that just have got something about them. I have had a brief chat with grand-dad and he is absolutely delighted.”

Kinane, standing outside the ring, said: “He is a lovely horse, and we didn’t think we’d be pushed that hard. He was a stand-out, he could have been sold here in a few weeks at the October Sale. Hopefully, he can run like his brother, he was a good horse.”

The sale was the highlight on a day which produced a strong clearance rate of 83 percent (206 horses offered and 172 sold), an average price of €25,706 (US$30,251), a slight increase of 1 percent on the same session in 2019, a median of €20,330 (US$23,924), a drop of just 3 percent. The day’s aggregate sales totaled €4,421,441 (US$5,203,244).
