 The top priced lot of the Tattersalls Online April sale was blacktype producing mare JUMEIRAH STREET who was secured by Richard Knight, Newsells Park Stud and the A’Ali Partnership for 70,000 guineas. Consigned by Sophie Buckley’s Culworth Grounds Farm, the daughter of leading broodmare sire STREET CRY was offered in foal to Darley’s exciting young stallion MASAR.


Following the sale, Julian Dollar of Newsells Park Stud commented on the purchase:


"One of the partners in A’Ali identified the mare and we thought she was worth the punt. We like Street Cry as a broodmare sire. The mare has made a good start with Jumbeau, her first two-year-old, placed in the Marygate Stakes last season in the earliest Stakes race of the year, showing she was fast and precocious. She comes from a good family and we thought she fitted the profile for A’Ali who was a very fast and precocious racehorse himself. We have been really pleased with the A'Ali foals and that has emboldened us to be confident and to invest in more mares to support him. She has proven she can produce a fast and precocious horse and A’Ali should only help to strengthen that.”


Speaking on the online sales, Julian went on to say:

"I think we are all getting used to the Online Sales and they will play a bigger role in the future. They come along a lot more frequently and you want to be able to take the opportunity to sell a horse when the timing is right. I think as we are all becoming more and more comfortable with them and we will be using them to buy and sell more often. It is useful to be able to sell horses at the times you want”


Sophie Buckley of Culworth Grounds Farm has been a strong supporter of the Tattersalls Online sales as both a vendor and purchaser and added regarding the online sales:


“They are very convenient and being able to sell at any time of the year make them a very appealing option. Tattersalls Online is cost effective, it is easy and straightforward to use, and fortunately we have been successful on the platform. I think there is a lot of potential surrounding the online sales for the future and the opportunities they provide.”


The next highest priced lot was secured by trainer Jamie Osborne who went to 25,000 guineas for the three-time winner ELZAAM BLUE. Offered by Darren Bunyan’s Blackmiller Stables, the five-year-old ELZAAM gelding most recent win came at Dundalk in February over one mile and two and a half furlongs.
