Curtain closes on a successful sales season at Tattersalls Cheltenham

Tattersalls Cheltenham May Sale concluded with a satisfactory set of results; five lots fetched £100,000 or more combined with an aggregate of £2,341,000, an increased median of £45,500, and an average of £50,891. The clearance finish on 72%.
 
Headlining the sale was the son of Irish based sire Notnowcato. Largy Fix (Lot 39), boasted the youngster of the season, produced a four-length winning performance taking the four-year-old Maiden at Loughanmore for Stuart Crawford. Crawford, who introduced The Very Man and Malone Road among others at this venue, sold the gelding for £170,000 to purchaser Margaret O'Toole.
 
The Donnchadh Doyle-trained French Dynamite (Lot 62) made an impressive debut in the second division of the four-year-old maiden at Tralee when winning by a comfortable length and a half. The son of Kentucky Dynamite, offered by Monbeg Stables was knocked down to Margaret O'Toole for £165,000.

Flash De Touzaine (Lot 9) ran a race full of promise on his debut in the INF Flat Race at the Killarney Festival in May for trainer Liz Doyle. A brother to 5 winners including the classy VALCO DE TOUZAINE, the Kapgarde gelding was sold to agent Tom Malone and trainer Paul Nicholls for £125,000.

Kakamora (Lot 54), a son of Great Pretender and out of a sister to both Golden Gael and the seven-time winning Bitofapuzzle. The four-year-old made much of the running in a very competitive maiden at Loughanmore and whilst challenged after the second last, he merely showed what he was capable of finding when required and picked up very strongly all the way to the line. Consigned by Donnchadh Doyle's Monbeg Stables, Kakamora is sold to Gerry Hogan Bloodstock for £105,000.
 
The Sean McParlan-trained Royal Drumlee (Lot 14) recorded his third consecutive success when taking the competitive winners' of two at Broughshane. The Royal Anthem gelding's consistent performances was noted by agent Hamish Macauley and American based trainer Leslie F Young and was secured for £100,000.
 
At the conclusion of the Tattersalls Cheltenham May Sale, Director of Horses in Training Sales Richard Pugh commented;
 
"Today at Cheltenham the curtain came down on another successful sales season. Undoubtedly it was the best season to date on the track; history was made with graduate Tiger Roll winning back to back Grand Nationals, Envoi Allen declared himself one of the most exciting National Hunt prospects when winning the Grade 1 Champion Bumper at The Festival and an impressive 50 black type races won by our graduates in the 2018/19 season. In the sales ring, the Festival Sale produced its best ever set of results and provided the highest priced point to point mare on record when My Whirlwind sold for £400,000. 
 
"As we break for the season here at Cheltenham, we would like to extend a thank you to our loyal vendors and purchasers and look forward to welcoming you back to this unique venue for the Tattersalls Cheltenham November Sale."
