The highlight of 2018 was Belle Josephine (Dubawi), who was purchased two year prior for 60,000gns, topping the prestigious Goffs London Sale. Offered in foal to Siyouni and with her colt foal by Pivotal at foot she realised £720,000 when selling to Alastair Donald of SackvilleDonald. She is the dam of the dual Listed winner Mildenberger who ran second to Roaring Lion in the Gr.3 Dante Stakes while she hails from the family of Meon Valley blue hen Reprocolor.
Later that year our homebred Kodiac colt out of Life Of Pi (Sea The Stars) was the highlight of the Tattersalls December Sale draft, selling for 125,000gns to Dromoland Farm. Life Of Pi is an unraced daughter of Gr.1-placed Noah's Ark and is from the family of Wandesta that was bought privately. Also from the same draft, a Fast Company filly out of Scotch Bonnet (Montjeu), dam of Listed winner Tilly's Chilli, sold for 75,000gns to Cathy Grassick of Brian Grassick Bloodstock. Scotch Bonnet was a 33,000gns purchase at the Tattersalls Mare Sale the previous year carrying the filly.
