Cormac Doyle’s, Monbeg Stables’, consigned the top lot of the day at Tattersalls April Sale at Cheltenham on Friday afternoon. Coconut Splash, a four-year-old gelding by Stowaway who was a four length winner on debut at Castletown-Geoghegan. This smart sort was secured by Evan Williams for £180,000.

Denis Murphy’s Grangeclare Native won a Curraghmore 4yo maiden last Sunday, this afternoon, Margaret O’Toole and Gordon Elliott went to £125,000 to secure the Shantou gelding.

Cormac Doyle’s, Dromahane winner, Bobhopeornohope, was a £105,000 purchase for Aiden Murphy and Kim Bailey.

At the conclusion of the sale, Director of Horse in Training Sales Richard Pugh commented;  

“The strong demand witnessed at today’s sale has resulted in a positive increased clearance rate of 83%. The sale has showed real strength and depth at every level of the market. It was particularly pleasing to see British Point to Pointer Switch Hitter make £120,000 which highlights the increased quality of young pointers in the UK.

“We now look forward to the Tattersalls Cheltenham May Sale. This venue continually rewards vendors who send promising young Point to Pointers and Form horses to us where they can stand out in a select environment.”
