looking colts of the day and would be offered for resale as a yearling
or a 3 year old.
A colt offered from Dave Harveys Winter Lodge Stables was
bought by Tipperary vet Johnny Quinlan for €7,200. This colt
is out of an un-raced half sister to Charlie Swans profilic

Two other colts were sold for €6,200 and €6,000. The
average selling price of all foals sold was an impressive €8,200.
