Excelebration ex Kayak yearling colt after selling for €120,000 at Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sales 2018

€120,000 for Excelebration colt at Tatts Ireland

A son of Excelebration was one of the standout offerings at Tattersalls Ireland’s September Yearling Sale on Wednesday when selling for €120,000 to Joe Foley, acting for Steve Parkin’s Clipper Logistics.

Foley had to see off strong opposition from Kevin Ross for the striking colt, whose half-sister Lady Kaya is one of the top juvenile fillies in Ireland this season.

“He has been bought for Clipper Logistics. He was a very nice colt, who was very well presented by Kitty (Cowhey), and I loved him when I saw him here the other morning,” said Foley. “Obviously he is a half-brother to a very good filly in Lada Kaya, but he stood up very well in his own right.”

The colt was bred by John O’Connor.
