Today’s first session of the two day Sportsman’s Sale was topped by a Dandy Man filly from Catherinestown Stud Farm (Lot 722 - pictured) that was purchased by Joe Foley for €90,000. The filly is a granddaughter of Group 1 performer Rosinka. Zoffany sired the next two highest priced yearlings of Part 1, with Wardstown Stud’s colt (Lot 527) going the way of Bahen Bloodstock and Hanshen Thom for €80,000, while Peter & Ross Doyle Bloodstock secured a smart filly from Church View Stables (Lot 571) for €70,000.
Among the many other yearlings in demand today were a son of Foxwedge from The Castlebridge Consignment (Lot 801) that was knocked down to Bobby O’Ryan and Keith Dalgleish at €65,000, while Dandy Man’s popularity continued with Lot 819 from Ballyhane going to Aidan O’Ryan and Gordon Elliott for €65,000. BBA Ireland, one of the leading purchasers at this week’s Orby Sale, made a major impact again today securing a total of 49 yearlings which included a €40,000 Dawn Approach filly from the family of Frankel (Lot 604), consigned by Miltown Park Stud.
