Lost Diamond: unraced filly was offered from the Godolphin draft
McKeever cuts to the chase for Lost Diamond
By James Thomas 8:31PM 23 MAR 2017 THANKS partly to a substantial draft from Godolphin, the Tattersalls Ireland March Sale on Thursday showed significant year-on-year increases in all the key market indicators.
As an illustration of how significant a step forward the first Ascot auction of the year has made, the opening bid of £50,000 for Lost Diamond – top lot among 162 offered – was more than double the top price achieved at the 2016 renewal. And the very presence of the agent responsible for making this audacious play, Susie McKeever, also highlights Ascot's growing appeal. Though a little perseverance was still required before the hammer eventually came down in favour of McKeever and her husband Johnny, at £70,000 they will rightly feel they have secured their client a bargain.
