Old Vic gelding hits six figures at Spring Store sale


THE £100,000 barrier was reached at the DBS Spring Store Sale when lot 266, the Old Vic three-year-old out of black-type winner Native Bid, was sold to Highflyer and Nicky Henderson for owner Michael Buckley.

This was the first occasion that a store has sold for six figures at the sale since 2007.

The gelding was bought for €76,000 as a foal at Tattersalls Ireland November foal sale by Lady Jane Grosvenor, and was today offered through consignor Goldford Stud.

Doesn't look much profit in this to me.

Assuming all is as transparent as appears the current beneficiary is the owner of the dam Native Bid.
This by coincidence is/was a J Hanson who had Native Bid in training with Nicky Henderson.

Absolutely, Primo. Well done Koo, there will have been some good value there, let's hope you tracked it down. All buyers right now need maximum encouragement and I trust you'll be rewarded accordingly!

Good luck with them, that Shirocco looks a likely type
Plenty of time to wait when buying lots 270/309, were they the only two on the radar or were you under bidder on any other nice types

( Koo is also me btw )

I went there with an open mind tbh  saw plenty through their paces, checked obvious signs which is a must as someone bought one we felt had already had tendon trouble and therefore a sign it was already tried.

Out of all the ones we saw we liked 270 best and have some NH wanting a horse, we went to our last bid to get it which is usually the case.  Will start off in bumpers when he comes to hand

The filly wasnt on the list, but thankfully someone else brought her out to look at and she simply shone out amongst the others.  I liked the stallion and the fact the dam is 3 winners from 3 runners made my mind up she deserved upto 20k.   Ive sold on 25% already to an existing owner in the yard who l;oved her on looks as well.  Im hoping she prefers well enough to consider breeding from her as its something ive always wanted to try

Fingers crossed for both
