Yeats store realises €160,000

Yeats ex Valleya sold for €160,000 at Tattersalls Derby Sale sold to Aiden Murphy

Demand for Yeats’ progeny showed no sign of letting up on the second day of the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale at Fairyhouse on Thursday when his standout lot was a €160,000.

Out of the Linamix mare Valleya, a full-sister to Valiramix, the three-year-old was sold to agent Aiden Murphy from Mount Brown Farm. Gerry Griffin and Bobby O’Ryan were among the disappointed bidders.

“He is a fabulous walker and the nicest Yeats in the sale,” said Murphy. Yeats also had a €125,000 offering on the sale’s first day.
