Colin Bowe’s Loughanmore 4yo winner from 3 weeks ago, Fiston des Issards (FR), was a £255,000 purchase for Gordon Elliot at this afternoon’s Tattersalls Cheltenham November Sale.
Denis Murphy’s, Uptown Lady (IRE), a bay filly by Milan (GB), out of Lady Zephyr (IRE), was purchased by Jonjo O’Neill for £150,000, she took the runner-up spot in Knockinroe on her debut three weeks ago. Her dam won 6 times on the track but won a Ballon point-to-point for Blackwater man, Frank McGuinness back in 2004.
The top lot of the day was Wilson Dennison’s, Ballyadam, the 4yo Fame And Glory gelding, won his maiden at Portrush four weeks ago.
The day’s turnover of £2,902,000 was slightly back on last year’s figure, but a slight concern will be the percentage of lots sold, last year it was 91%, this dropped back to 69% today.
