The 5-year-old gelding Disguisedlimit (Ire) (Mahler {GB}) (lot 25) took pride of place when selling for £150,000 at the Tattersalls Cheltenham April Sale on Thursday.

Consigned by Monbeg Stables, he caught the eye of agent Tom Malone with Philip Hobbs and Johnson White after winning a Curraghmore point-to-point on Apr. 24. His dam is a half-sister to Bobs Worth (Ire) (Bog Back), a multiple Grade 1 winner at Cheltenham. He was purchased by Monbeg Stables for €70,000 out of the 2022 Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale.

Monbeg also consigned the second highest lot of the day, lot 13, On The Bayou (Ire) (Affinisea {Ire}), who went to Kevin Ross Bloodstock for £140,000. Related to Listed Prix de Cluny heroine Suprematie (Fr) (Gay Mecene), the 4-year-old gelding also sports a one-for-one record. He prevailed in a Castletown-Geoghegan point-to-point earlier this month.

At the close of trade, 28 lots sold (76%) of 37 lots offered for an aggregate of £1,679,000. The average dropped slightly to £59,964 (-1%) and the median was £44,000 (-12%).

Tattersalls associate director Mathew Prior said, “It has been a tricky spring and we, alongside our Irish and British point-to-point consignors, have been hostage to the vagaries of the wet weather, but as ever our vendors have produced fantastically talented horses who have been turned out to perfection.”
