Native American wins the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes

Native American provided Richard Fahey with his second victory of the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes at the Irish Champions Festival having previously won the race in 2020 with Shark Two One. Native American made it two from two with a very impressive performance under Colin Keane and provided owners Wathnan Racing with their first win on Irish soil. 

The Sioux-Nation colt was sold for €75,000 by Edmond Ryan of Weir View Stud to Robin O’Ryan and Richard Fahey at last year’s September Yearling Sale. All connections of Native American attended on the day to witness this valuable victory. Edmond and Grainne Ryan, as vendors of the winning horse, were also on hand to receive the keys to a brand-new Overlander R240 horsebox. 

September Yearling Sale graduates have a strong reputation for producing graduates that excel on the racetrack, and the sale continues to lead the way as Europe’s leading yearling sale by two-year-old winners. This year's September Yearling Sale takes place from 19 - 21 September with over 750 yearlings catalogued. There have been some exciting and timely updates since the catalogue was printed that includes a half-sister to Group 1 second Spycatcher (Lot 91), a half-sister to Nellie Leylax, winner of the Sunday Series Nursery (Lot 271), a half-sister to Tiger Belle, winner of the Group 3 Prix d’Arenberg (Lot 99), an own brother to Maiden debut winner Supercooled (Lot 264) and a half-sister to unbeaten A Lilac Rolla (Lot 653) to list just a few. 

All yearlings catalogued will be candidates for the €250,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes which takes place at The Curragh at the Irish Champions Festival 2024. The vendor of the winning horse will drive away in an Overlander R240 2-stall horsebox.
