ABSOLUTE Notions, winner of the Goffs Land Rover Bumper at Punchestown on Tuesday, was sold for €370,000 at Thursday's Goffs Punchestown Sale.
Bloodstock agent Mags O'Toole signed for the four-year-old son of Milan and while the new owner was not revealed it has been speculated that the horse will stay with trainer Gordon Elliott.
Elliott will definitely train Land Rover Bumper runner-up Miss Agusta. Saddled by Mags Mullins to finish second on Tuesday, the Flemensfirth filly was bought by Elliott for €235,000.
Paul Nicholls will train the second highest-priced lot at the sale, the four-year-old filly Jenny Wyse. Winner of a point-to-point at Monksgrange in Co Wexford last weekend for handler Colin Bowe, the daughter of Flemensfirth was sold for €360,000 today.
Jonjo O'Neill is set to train The Gooner, recent winner at Curraghmore point-to-point for handler Matthew Flynn O'Connor. The Flemensfirth gelding fetched €280,000.
