Ballymacoll Dispersal at Tattersalls off to Flying Start
The eagerly anticipated Ballymacoll Dispersal at Tattersalls made a flying start on the opening day of Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.
The five Book 1 Ballymacoll yearlings realised a total of 2,575,000 guineas with the highlights being the 1,700,000 guineas paid by Moyglare Stud’s Fiona Craig for the outstanding KINGMAN daughter of JUSTLOOKDONTOUCH and the 550,000 guineas paid by Rabbah Bloodstock for the SEA THE STARS daughter of Champion mare ISLINGTON.
Commenting after the sale, Ballymacoll Stud general manager Peter Reynolds said;
"I am delighted with our dispersal sale so far. To have sold the Kingman filly to the hugely successful Moyglare Stud guaranteed that she will carry on the bloodline for the next generations. The fact that Moyglare is only four miles from Ballymacoll makes it even better news! It was also great that the brilliant racemare Islington should produce a filly of such outstanding quality as her tenth foal and all fillies is testament to her ability as a broodmare."
Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony added;
“That was a wonderful start to the Ballymacoll Dispersal at Tattersalls. This is the most eagerly anticipated dispersal for many a year and the five Book 1 Ballymacoll yearlings made a real statement. The KINGMAN filly was the third highest priced yearling filly of the sale and a magnificent advertisement for the Dispersal which continues at Book 2 of the October Yearling Sale next week and culminates at the December Sale.”
Four time Group 1 winner ISLINGTON, in foal to KINGMAN, will be amongst the headline acts of the final part of the Ballymacoll Stud Dispersal at the Tattersalls December Sale. Other highlights will include the nine year old GALILEO mare JUSTLOOKDONTOUCH alongside her multiple Listed winning daughter ABINGDON and her hugely promising two year old daughter AIM OF ARTEMIS, both trained by Sir Michael Stoute.
