SALES: Flemensfirth mare Amelia's Dance tops Ascot June trade at £90,000
on 04 June 2019
Peter Fahey's mare was runner-up in a bumper at Southwell on her debut, and she was bought by Michael Lynch

TATTERSALLS Ascot June Sale concluded with a top price of £90,000, an increased average of £6,107 (+13%), an increased aggregate of £726,700 (+3%) and an increased median of £3,500 (+13%). The clearance rose two points to 84%.

The highlight of the day was Peter Fahey's Flemensfirth mare Amelia's Dance (Lot 128) who was placed second on her bumper debut at Southwell. The four-year-old, from the family of 15-time winner Mister McGoldrick was knocked down to Michael Lynch for £90,000.

Lot 119, three-time winner Kilcrea Vale from Seven Barrows made £37,000. The consistent and reliable performer by Beneficial, who finished fourth in the 2018 Topham Chase at the Grand National Festival, was sold to Will Ramsay for £37,000.

River Sands (Lot 72), an impeccably bred three-year-old filly by Kingman - offered by Godolphin - and out of The Miniver Rose, herself the winner of the Group 2 DFS Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster, was secured by Hamish Macauley Bloodstock for £25,000.

At the conclusion of the sale, Horses in Training Sales Director Richard Pugh commented: "We witnessed solid trade here today at the Tattersalls Ascot June Sale. It was extremely pleasing to sell a top lot of £90,000, the highest price achieved at this sale in three years together with a very strong clearance rate of 84%.

"The key statistics, the aggregate, median and average have made considerable gains and this sale has developed itself as a reliable source of quality form horses that the market identifies with and that is evident by the very strong trade we have seen here today.

"We look forward to welcoming clients back to this venue for the Tattersalls Ascot July Sale on 16 July 2019."
