Killer Kane tops the Cheltenham Festival Sale at £300,000
Solid trade was witnessed at the Cheltenham Festival Sale this evening held in the winner's enclosure after racing. The evening concluded with an aggregate of £2,195,000, a median of £115,000 and an average of £146,333. 
The highlight of the evening came from Donnchadh Doyle's Killer Kane (Lot 21). The Oscar five-year-old made an impressive winning debut at Ballycahane. The half-brother to impressive Supreme Novice hurdle winner Go Native was sold for £300,000 to Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock 
Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock and Colin Tizzard were also responsible for the next two highest priced lots of the evening. Colin Bowe's Amarillo Sky (Lot 15), a four-year-old by Westerner, ran out an impressive winner of his four-year-old maiden at Borris House on debut and was knocked down for £280,000.

Shirocco's Dream (Lot 6) ran a cracker on debut when beaten two lengths by subsequent bumper winner Rose Of Arcadia. She followed this up with an impressive win on her next start at Borris House at the beginning of March in a competitive five-year-old maiden. Ross Doyle and Colin Tizzard who secured Rose Of Arcadia at the December Sale clearly rate the form and swooped to secure the daughter of Shirocco for £260,000.

At the conclusion of the sale, Matt Prior, Head of Cheltenham Sales commented; 
"So far it has been a successful week here at Cheltenham both on the track and in the sales ring. Shishkin, Envoi Allen and Ferny Hollow all won Grade 1 races and nine lots fetched £100,000 or more at this evening's sale. We look forward to charting their progress and hope they can add to the ever-growing list of Festival winning graduates."
