TATTERSALLS NOVEMBER NH SALE: Star talent in world's biggest National Hunt sale
on 03 November 2016
Michael Ross previews the extensive Tattersalls Ireland's November NH Sale

THE November Sale conducted by Tattersalls Ireland Ltd at Fairyhouse is still by far the world’s biggest National Hunt auction.

This year it will again extend to six days, starting this Sunday, November 6th and finishing on Friday, November 11th, though with 1,469 entries it is slightly smaller than last year’s 1,530.

The sale starts on Sunday with 27 stores and 178 NH yearlings. Then on Monday come the first of about 1,100 National Hunt foals, which continue throughout the next three days. Finally on Friday come 143 broodmares. Selling begins at 10am each day.

There have been many individual graded winners in the last three years which were sold at the November NH Sale, including Grade 1 stars Faugheen, Lord Windermere, Captain Chris, Bobs Worth, At Fishers Cross, More Of That, First Lieutenant, Thistlecrack, Yorkhill and The New One.

Among the foals catalogued, there are no fewer than 72 from the first crop of Leading Light and 69 by Shirocco, while several other sires including Arcadio, Califet, Dylan Thomas, Fame And Glory, Flemensfirth, Getaway, Imperial Monarch, Mahler, Milan, Ocovango, Presenting, Sageburg, Shantou, Sholokhov, Westerner and Yeats have over 20 each. Such jumping stars as Douvan and Ballycasey have own-brothers among the foals, and there is a half-brother to Bob’s Worth. There is also a yearling own-brother to Toe The Line and a yearling filly who is the first produce of star hurdler Quevega.
