Pour Moi leads way at Fairyhouse
A well-connected son of Pour Moi headed trade at the Tattersalls Ireland August Sale at Fairyhouse on Wednesday when selling for €65,000.
Out of the Bustino mare Tracker, the three-year-old is a sibling to this year’s G1 JLT Novices' Chase heroine Shattered Love (by Yeats) and Charlie Hall Chase winner Irish Cavalier.
He was snapped up by Gearoid Costelloe, who commented: “This horse is very similar to Irish Cavalier and is by a Derby winner in Pour Moi, so what’s not to like about that? He will go to Denis Murphy to be broken in and trained to hopefully win his point-to-point and then be sold on.”
Bred by Limetree Stud, he was offered from Greenville House Stud, having missed his intended appearance in the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale in June.
