The first edition of the one-day Tattersalls May Store Sale took place on Tuesday with largely positive figures achieved. An aggregate of €2,246,600 was reached as 148 horses went under the hammer for a median price of €13,000, an average price of €15,180 and a clearance rate of 76%.


The star of the catalogue was Lot 110, a son of the late Fame And Glory who fetched a top price of €65,000 from agent Mouse O’Ryan. The gelding was offered by leading consignor Peter Nolan Bloodstock and is from the black-type family of dual Grade 3 chase scorer Arctic Weather (IRE), talented Group 3 winners on the flat in Lady Lahar and Jallota, as well as Listed winner and Cornwallis Stakes runner-up Miss Lahar.


The spot for the second highest price was tied between Lot 215 and Lot 121, when both geldings were sold for €42,000 apiece.  Mouse O’Ryan was once again successful in securing Lot 215, another son of Fame And Glory. Consigned by Gaynestown Stud the April-born bay is out of an Old Vic own-sister to Grade 3 Cheltenham Festival winner and Grade 1 Hatton's Grace Hurdle second Ninetieth Minute (IRE).


Kevin Ross Bloodstock and Nick Gifford were the buyers of Lot 121 from Castledillon Stud.  The son of Glenview Stud sire Shirocco is out of the black-type mare Gli Gli (IRE) and is a half-brother to two-time winner Reigning Supreme (IRE). The pedigree also features Grade 1 Punchestown Gold Cup Chase victor China Rock (IRE) and Grade 3 winning hurdler Asigh Pearl (IRE).


A further three horses made €40,000 and these included Lot 108, a son of Shirocco who was purchased by Paul Cashman of Rathbarry Stud. Lot 43, a Fame And Glory gelding bought by Aiden Murphy and Lot 91, already named Smurphy Enki who was purchased by Monbeg Stables.


The next sale to take place at Tattersalls Ireland will be the Derby Sale, which features a catalogue of 466 lots and will take place over the original two-day format on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th June, starting at 10.30am each day.
