Freshman Shadwell Stud stallion Sakhee dominated Thursday's trading at the Tattersalls October yearling sale (Part 2) in England, supplying the two top-priced lots.
A 90,000-guiena colt out of Premiere Dance, offered and bred by the National Stud, headed business after Willie Browne of Ireland-based breeze-up consignor Mocklershill Stables came out best in a duel with David Redvers.
"He'll be coming back here in April; he has to having cost that money," said Browne. "He was very expensive, I thought I might get him for 60,000 guineas, but I was mad about him. It was all on a bit of a whim, but I like Sakhee and sometimes you get a feeling about a horse and I had to have him."
Trainer Neville Callaghan will take charge of a 78,000-guinea Sakhee colt out of Shukran, bought by Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock.
The gross of 2,689,500 guineas was up 15% on 2004 while the average price of 20,375 guineas jumped by 61%.
The sale finishes today.
