SALES: Gordon Elliott to train £195,000 sale-topper
on 19 May 2021
An incredible 92% of the 156 horses offered for sale on Wednesday at Doncaster were sold

GORDON Elliott continued to strengthen the Cullentra House ranks at the Goffs UK Spring Sale on Wednesday when co-signing for the day's top-priced lot, Happy D'Ex.

The French-bred four-year-old filly won a point-to-point at Dromahane by 15 lengths on May 2nd for handler Denis Murphy.

Elliott's name was also on the ticket for £100,000 purchase Curtain Tim, a winner at Necarne last weekend for Cormac Doyle.

Phil Rowley’s debut Cheltenham bumper winner The Player Queen was sold to Gerry Hogan and Rose Dobbin for £140,000.

Warren Ewing produced two headline lots today, the debut points placed Constitution Hill was sold to Nicky Henderson’s Seven Barrows for £120,000, and points winner Git Maker was knocked down to Tom Malone and Jamie Snowden for £105,000.

Malone and Snowden also went to £115,000 for Donnchadh Doyle’s placed pointer Super Survivor.

There was a 92% clearance rate at Wednesday's session, while the average (£31,812) and median (£22,000) prices were records for day one of this sale.

The sale concludes on Thursday with horses in training.
