Almanzor Foals Light up the Ring

Almanzor Foals Light up the Ring28 Nov 2019

The progeny of European Champion 3YO Almanzor are finding favour with Northern Hemisphere buyers. During yesterday's session of Tattersall’s December Foal Sale his youngsters were in hot demand.

He had a pair of fillies and two colts through the ring and they sold at an impressive average of NZ$176,750. This was more than double the day’s average and ensured his place as its leading first season sire.

Almanzor achieved a top price of NZ$263,812 following Blandford Bloodstock's purchase of his Overbury Stud-consigned daughter of Plume Rose. This is the family of multiple Group One winner and sire Peintre Celebre.

Almanzor's top colt was knocked down for just shy of NZ$180,000 to agent Jamie Railton. The youngster was offered by Plantation Stud and is out of the Fastnet Rock mare Fast Lily.
