Trade has been typically strong at the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale this week and so we were especially delighted to be able to purchase our pick of the sale, Lot 178, a bay filly by Shirocco out of Terre Haute for €52,000.
As a daughter of Shirocco, this active filly shares her sire with a host of decorated performers such as Annie Power and Minella Rocco, but what really attracted us to this beautifully-made individual is that she is a half-sister to our top-class mare Haute Estime, a horse we have high hopes for this season as a novice chaser.
This three-year-old comes highly recommended and we are grateful to bloodstock agent Mags O’Toole who struck the winning bid on our behalf.
You can find more information about this exciting youngster and our other ownership options currently available on the For Sale page on our website, or alternatively you can get in touch via the office to come and see some of our future stars in the flesh.
