DERBY SALE RECORDS MADE AGAIN
Another Derby Sale, another record price: Gerry Griffin's winning bid €305,000 for lot 280 - an outstanding son of King's Theatre set the record as the most paid for a store gelding. The 4yo gelding from Jim Mernagh's Coolamurry Stud pipped the previous record held by a Supreme Leader gelding at the 2004 Derby Sale by €5,000. This is the second year in a row that a new record price has been set.
I mentioned on the note to this photo on flickr that he should get a good price, this horse.... well it tyrns out that he is a record beater - the most expensive store gelding ever sold at auction in Ireland. I feel very proud!
