DBS National Hunt mare and foal catalogue out

THE catalogue for Doncaster Bloodstock Sales' National Hunt Mare and Foal sale on December 13 has been published.

The one-day sale starts at 9am with the Weatherbys Insurance Kenneth Oliver memorial foal show championships, with separate classes for colts and fillies, and will be followed by a parade of nine stallions before the sale starts.

Among the standout pedigrees on offer are: a Westerner colt out of a sister to Tidal Bay (lot 15), a Presenting three-parts brother to Denman and Silverburn (111) and an Alflora brother to Wishfull Thinking (100).

DBS managing director Henry Beeby said: "We are absolutely delighted with the catalogue that we have put together for the National Hunt mare and foal sales as we have made a real effort to persuade British breeders to sell some of their best NH Foals at DBS and the reaction that we have received is clearly illustrated on the pages of this catalogue.

"Some of the finest pedigrees in the NH studbook are represented by this year's offspring and we are also delighted with the physical specimens that have been compiled.

"The fact that all of the foals are eligible for the Weatherbys Insurance Kenneth Oliver memorial foal show championships is another major incentive for vendors to send some of their best NH Foals to DBS and the catalogue also contains some fantastic NH yearlings as well as some truly exciting NH Mares.

"This catalogue is easily the best collection of NH Mares and Foals to be sold at DBS in recent years and we look forward to welcoming a diverse buying bench to Doncaster in December, for the last sale of the DBS calendar 2011."
