With two colt foals realising five figure returns, there was a strong trade for blacktype pedigrees at Cavan last week. The one-day fixture for young stock, (which incorporated the ‘winter selection’ for noteworthy foals) delivered a healthy hike in clearance to 64% (45% in 2020), while the average remained very similar to twelve months ago at €3,525 (€3,516). Both the fillies and the colts proved popular throughout, and while Irish buyers were by far the dominant force, a handful of foals are bound for England and the US.
