JUST THE ONE AT FAIRYHOUSE
But the one we wanted
Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sales aka "Fairyhouse" is a Happy Hunting Ground. We have bought a low cost Royal Ascot winner, 6 x winners of 6 or more, a bunch of winners of 3 or 4 - mostly rated TF 90 - 105 and various single/double winners that have been sold on sooner.
For Day 1, David's short list was 5, whittled down after genetic checks and vets to 2. He bought the first one, a very smart Royal Applause colt described by the vet as a "must buy don't weaken" colt. He cost €20,000 plus Tattersalls 6% buyer's premium.
The colt will be trained by Peter Chapple-Hyam like some of the earlier successes.
and that was that....
