Michael Holmes Sale Prices – The Late Mr R Eckstein & Mr RC Muir Dispersal Sale held at Arc en Ciel, 7 Sept, Wellington
Four-year-old multiple Gr3 winning colt Tribal Dance topped the well-attended Michael Holmes mixed sale at Arc-en-Ciel last Friday. The Tiger Dance colt, whose record includes a third in the Gr1 Cape Derby, was knocked down to Robin Bruss.
The highly performed Tales Of Bravery (620k) and Top Seller (675k), as well as promising 3yo Twitter (1m), fell to bids from Michel Nairac and will continue their careers in Mauritius.
In the unraced 2yo division, a top price of 700k was paid by Mayfair Speculators for Western Winter colt Exelero, full brother to stakes winner Master Mascus.
The top weanling was a Trippi filly out of stakes placed Pewter, for which John Freeman forked out 210k.
St John Gray got the most expensive mare at the sale, with a bid of 280k for imported Danehill Dancer mare Queen Mira. The mare’s dam is by Sadler’s Wells from a Shirley Heights mare descending from English Champion filly Attica Meli.
