Expert Eye colt makes 80,000gns at Tattersalls Somerville Sale

A yearling colt from the first crop of Expert Eye was the second highest-priced colt sold at Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale yesterday.

The colt's dam, White Cay, has already produced two stakes winners and is a half-sister to Gr.1 winner Balisada. Consigned by Kilminfoyle House Stud he was one of the biggest pinhooks of the day. He was bought for 41,000gns at Tattersalls December Sale and realised 80,000gns yesterday when purchased by Freddy Tylicki.

Tylicki commented: "I loved him, I thought he was the pick of the sale. I am very taken with how well Expert Eye is throwing them. This is for a client, no trainer is planned yet, we'll have to have a chat and make plans but he'll stay in Britain I'm sure. We were very keen on this lad, so we're delighted to have got him. He has a lovely physique, a great walk, plenty of presence, very good eye to him. He ticked a lot of the boxes - probably all of them!"
