Profitable start for Powerstown Stud at Tattersalls

POWERSTOWN Stud enjoyed a profitable start to the evening when selling a Holy Bull half-brother to last season's Dee Stakes winner Tajaaweed (15) for 130,000gns.

Luke Lillingston of Kern/Lillingston Association signed for the colt, who had cost T W Bloodstock just $35,000 at the Keeneland September Sale.

"I'm not entirely sure where he'll be trained, but he'll start off racing in this country before perhaps going to the US," said Lillingston.

"He breezed very well and he's by a very good sire, who gives him the option of racing across the pond."

His price came close to being matched just three lots later when Tom Goff of Blandford Bloodstock fended off Anthony Stroud to secure a Kheleyf colt (18) for 120,000gns.

Con Marnane's Bansha House Stables consigned the colt, who had been a €65,000 yearling purchase at the Tattersalls Ireland September Sale.
