Listed winning Hurdler Credrojava Tops the Tattersalls Online March Sale at 48,000 Guineas

The Tattersalls Online March Sale was topped by Listed winning hurdler CREDROJAVA when selling for 48,000 guineas in today’s online auction.


A debut point-to-point winner at five and undefeated in her only three starts under rules for trainer and consignor Harry Fry, the daughter of PRESENTING is an attractive breeding prospect. The mare attracted the attention of multiple bidders and was ultimately purchased by Tobar Farm. 


Following on from the sale a representative of Tobar Farm commented: 


“We found it all very straightforward. We are looking at the sales all the time and it was her page that jumped out to us. Not too many mares come up for sale by Presenting and we were in the market for a mare. She has a good page, she is black type winner and she is a young mare. She ticked all the boxes so we decided to just go for her. We will get her home and see what the plans are after that.”


Highly rated National Hunt performer ESCARIA TEN, who was offered with an entry to the Glenfarclas Chase on Wednesday of next week’s Cheltenham Festival, was purchased by agent Gerry Hogan and trainer Martin Keighley for 30,000 guineas. Hogan confirmed following the sale that the lot was purchased on behalf of an existing owner of Martin Keighley’s and that he would still be aimed for the cross-country chase next week.


Matching the second top price of 30,000 guineas was the Ralph Beckett consigned three-year-old NOT AFRAID who was purchased by Italian agent Federico Barberini. The lightly raced son of NIGHT OF THUNDER finished third on his latest start at Chelmsford and is a half-brother to Listed winner QUEEN ANIMATU. 


Other lots finding favour in the sale included Stuart William’s four-time winner BAOFO BOY and Charnwood Stables’ EAGLE LANDED who both fetched 14,500 guineas to bids from Marco Bozzi and John Jenkins respectively. 


At the close of bidding the Tattersalls Online March Sale realised a turnover of 240,700 guineas for the 29 lots sold, at an average of 8,300 guineas. Over 170 bidders registered for the sale from 18 different countries including Austria, Britain, France, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Norway, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands and from across the Gulf region.
