ALL but one of the 15 lots catalogued in last Sunday’s online ThoroughBid January Sale were registered as sold though Joseph O’Brien’s Carriganog Stables bought back four of the five lots they offered.

Thurles maiden winner Adelisa, a four-year-old filly by Holy Roman Emperor, was sold to Ronnie O’Leary for £17,500 but the Co Kilkenny yard retained First Blood (£20,000), Royal Dynasty (£20,000), Talbot (£17,000) and Happywifehappylife (£15,000).

All of these horses are now qualified for the ThoroughBid £30,000 All-Weather Challenge which is decided on points secured through placings at any of the all-weather tracks in Britain and Ireland between last night and April 28th.

ThoroughBid also offered six horses for sale in a pop-up January Sale last Sunday evening. Just one horse sold – the Johnny Portman-trained Mr Sundancer, a Wincanton bumper winner last month, fetching £15,500.

Shark Hanlon offered recent Limerick maiden hurdle winner Brulure Noire for sale but the five-year-old gelding was unsold at £29,000.
