THE latest renewal of the Tattersalls Ascot November Sale witnessed good trade for the lots on offer and ended with significant increases in both the turnover, up 32%, and average which was 34% higher than 12 months ago.
The top price on Thursday was paid for the Cheval Court Stud-consigned broodmare Charlotte Rosina, and she sold for £45,000 to Nick Taylor on behalf of bloodstock agent Tom Malone. The 10-year-old Choisir mare, a four-time winner herself, is the dam with her first foal of the Roger Teal-trained, stakes-placed Oxted who won the Portland Handicap at this year’s Doncaster St Leger Festival. That son of Mayson is a promising sort for the sprinting division next season. It is expected that Charlotte Rosina will be covered by Mayson next spring.
