Fast and furious bids secured two sales toppers both reaching £40,000.

Plus, Cavalier HF a stunning model of a colt by the famous Diamant De Semilly and directly out of top 1.50m performer Remi Cavalleri – a Bronze medallist at the Junior European Championships. The toppers were closely followed by popular colt Mr Tuxara, an outstanding model by top sire Taloubet Z, directly out of consistent 1.60m performer Ashdale Luxara and Lot 15 - Superstar by Olympic Gold Medallist Big Star out of Ruby VIII currently ridden by Holly Smith.
