More Grade 1 winners than any other Store Sale
The Derby Sale celebrated Grade 1 success yet again this weekend when Tahmuras cantered to victory in the Grade 1 Tolworth Novices' Hurdle at Sandown on Saturday. Giving Paul Nicholls his fifth success in the contest, Harry Cobden's mount travelled well throughout the two-mile race and stayed on well to cross the line in front.
Tahmuras was sold at the Derby Sale by Rathturtin Stud to Monbeg Stables for €10,000.
Champ Kiely winning the
Grade 1 Lawlor's of Naas Novice Hurdle

Trained by Willie Mullins and ridden by Danny Mullins, Champ Kiely made all and stayed on well to see off his rivals by two and a quarter lengths. It was a timely win for the February National Hunt Sale graduate as the catalogue for the upcoming sale is due to be released later this week.
