"That was fantastic, he has always been a straightforward horse," said Walsh, adding: "He is from Micheal Ryan of Al Eile Stud, and he didn't go to a yearling sale. The farm decided they would go to the breeze ups instead, and my father [Ted] trains for Michael Ryan, Micheal's father.
"He has been with me since the middle of January and he breezed really well this week. It is a fantastic result, it is great for the breeder, and great for Greenhills Farm, as well.
"The Goresbridge Sale was always the plan - he is an April foal and the breeders wanted to give him every chance as he is tall, scopey and rangy."
Of the 2020 breeze up season, the consignor added: "Trade has been great, it has not been an ideal year for everyone, but trade has been really good. We can all go back shopping in a couple of weeks now, and that is what it is all about, it has been a short turnaround for everyone."
Today's successful purchaser McStay said: "The sire speaks for himself, he is doing fantastic things. This horse did an exceptional breeze, he vetted particularly well and was well presented by Katie. I am delighted to get a Night Of Thunder, they are only going to get more expensive as the year goes on. He is for an existing client, goes to Ireland and probably to John Oxx."
The second six-figure lot from Greenhills was a Lope De Vega colt bought by Peter Nolan Bloodstock for £100,000 (Lot 172).
