THE ever progressive Mayo Roscommon Breeders’ Group fourth annual Breeders’ Select Foal Sale at Glenamaddy Equestrian Centre last Saturday returned another resounding set of returns for breeders.

Some 50 foals were sold at the venue and on their IHC Auction platform and, while the clearance rate of 62% was slighty down on 2020 (68%), the average price continues to rise to €5,498 (€5,030 in 2020). The top price also jumped significantly from 12 months ago, demonstrating the hard work this group puts in to selecting quality foals.
