Early action in the ring as Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock goes to £68,000 for the only lot (3) on offer by Haras du Logis resident Rio De La Plata.
Consigned by Tally-Ho Stud, the colt is out of the placed Sendawar mare Zarkiyna and is from the family of Zarkava.
Brown said: "I thought he did a very good breeze and there's a very good female line going back. I remember Rio De La Plata well from his breeze-up days. He was obviously a very good two-year-old and I've had a lot of luck buying from Tally-Ho.
Stephen Hillen and Kevin Ryan teamed up once again for another six-figure lot, this time going to £155,000 for a Mizzen Mast colt out of the Listed-winning Diesis mare Sharp Apple (lot 139).
Hillen confirmed that the colt had been bought for Angie Bailey and Pete Tingey, whose previous horses with Ryan include Group 1 hero Astaire, who they sadly lost last year, and four-time winner Bogart.
Hillen said: "He's a horse that I'd say would go a mile, he's not your typical breeze-up horse.
“He showed good speed [in his breeze] and is a lovely individual. He was at the top end of what we wanted to pay and sometimes you've got to stretch out for the ones you want."
