Final instalment of Brittas House Stud dispersal to be offered at Tattersalls
Listed winner We Are Ninety among the eyecatching lots on offer
The final instalment of the dispersal of the late Peter Magnier’s Brittas House Stud will be offered at the Tattersalls Online Sale on March 23.
The sale will be the third conducted on the company's online platform, on which Sweet Solera Stakes winner West End Girl was sold to Badgers Bloodstock for £420,000, a record price at an online sale in Britain or Ireland.
Heading the dispersal is the Listed winner We Are Ninety, a daughter of Thewayyouare who is set to be covered by last year's Arc hero Sottsass. The eight-year-old will be offered with a filly foal by Calyx at foot.
Others in the dispersal include two mares by Galileo. Innocent Air - Galileo's first ever stakes winner - will be offered in foal to the late Zoffany, while Zee Zee Gee, a daughter of Group 1 winner Zee Zee Top and a half-sister to Pretty Polly and Prix Jean Romanet heroine Izzi Top, has a yearling filly by No Nay Never who will also be sold at the auction.
Among the other eyecatching lots is the dual winner Combine, a daughter of Zoffany and the Group 3-placed Sadler's Wells mare Unity. Trained by Hugo Palmer, the four-year-old struck at Wolverhampton this month.
Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: "The Tattersalls Online platform made an auspicious debut when West End Girl sold for a UK and Irish record online price of £420,000 on the eve of Royal Ascot last year, and to be offering the final instalment of the Brittas House Stud dispersal at our latest online sale demonstrates the confidence that vendors already have in our online product.
“We've already sold six-figure lots from our online sales to Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa and the USA, and the March 23 sale already features lots which look set to appeal to a global audience.”
Tattersalls will also hold a further two online sales this year, on May 25 and June 29. Entries for next month's auction are now open.
