Celebrity Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale graduates before they were famous
A look at some star names before they came under the hammer
First Lieutenant: standing room only as the Redpender Stud-consigned son of Presenting sells to Mags O'Toole for E255,000 at the 2008 Derby Sale. He went on to win three Grade 1s, including when beating Rock On Ruby at the 2011 Cheltenham Festival
Outlander: auctioneer Philip Myerscough brings the hammer down at E78,000 to the bid of Philip Fenton in 2011. The son of Stowaway went on to land ten races including a trio of Grade 1s
City Island: the son of Court Cave was sold by Castletown Quarry Stud in 2016. Martin Brassil gave E31,000 for the relation to Morley Street and Granville Again, and duly trained him to win this year's Ballymore Novices' Hurdle
Glory And Fortune: Lulham Bloodstock acquired the Ballincurrig House Stud-consigned youngster for E75,000 in 2018. The son of Fame And Glory looked a hugely exciting prospect when winning a Cheltenham Listed bumper on debut on New Year's Day
Empire Of Dirt: Bobby O'Ryan was forced all the way to E325,000 to secure the son of Westerner offered by Goldford Stud on behalf of Lady Jane Grosvenor in 2010. That faith was repaid when he later won six races in the colours of Gigginstown House Stud.
Honeysuckle: Jockey Mark O'Hare snapped up the scopey daughter of Sulamani from The Glanvilles Stud draft for E9,500 in 2017. She rounded her first campaign over hurdles off by winning a Grade 1 at Punchestown, having changed hands for E110,000 last April
Alsa Mix: Paul Pierce picked up the son of Al Namix for just E10,000 in 2016 and trained him to win a Aghabullogue point-to-point. The horse was then sold on to Alan King and Highflyer Bloodstock for £65,000 before winning a Grade 2 novice hurdle
McFabulous: Tom Malone picked up Vincent Finn's son of Milan, a half-brother to fellow Derby Sale graduate Waiting Patiently, for E88,000 in 2017. McFabulous has now won three bumpers, and looked a horse with a big future when landing an Aintree Grade 2
Agusta Gold: Margaret Mullins parted with E17,500 for the daughter of Gold Well, who was offered by Ballybrennan Stud in 2016. She has recouped that purchase price multiple times over having won three races and reaching the frame in a Grade 3 hurdle
Robin De Carlow: Willie Mullins' talent spotter Harold Kirk found the daughter of Robin Des Champs for E40,000 in 2016. The progressive mare won a bumper and four hurdle races, including a Grade 3, and made a successful chasing debut earlier this month
Prince Of Scars: Goldford Stud presented the son of Flemensfirth on behalf of Swanbridge Bloodstock Ltd in 2013, when Conor O'Dwyer struck the winning bid of E175,000. That investment was rewarded when the horse won the Christmas Hurdle two years later.
Rockpoint: owner John Snook spent E82,000 to take home the Little Lodge Farm-consigned son of Shirocco in 2016. Colin Tizzard took charge of Rockpoint, who later landed the Grade 2 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham
