Following on from the successful inaugural Tattersalls Ireland Sale at Ascot in November which witnessed considerable increases in the average and aggregate, the December Sale continued the trend of improving results in the ring with a rise in the aggregate of 18% to £280,800 and an increased clearance rate of 66%. The average on the day was £3,846 while a median of £1,500 was recorded.
The top price at the last sale at Ascot for 2015 was the Darley offered mare Araajmh. The daughter of Street Cry was offered with a fashionable covering to Kodiac and was knocked down to JD Moore for £36,000.
Trainer Gary Moore was the successful purchaser of Lot 86, King Cool. Monbeg Stables, notable for producing top class young stock, consigned the son of King's Theatre and he was knocked down for £20,000. King Cool was an impressive six length winner of a Four-Year-Old Maiden in early November.
Today's sale concludes the series of Ascot Sales for 2015 which saw Tattersalls Ireland at the helm for the final two sales of the year. Trade continues to improve at this iconic venue and Tattersalls Ireland look forward to building on this further in 2016 with the ongoing support of our loyal customers.
The next Tattersalls Ireland Ascot Sale will take place on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016.
