Then at 1700gns was Blackstown Told U So from Jim Wilson. He is by Carmavy Striker and out of a dam by Fairywater Olympian.
A few lots earlier at 1800gns was Farmhill Terrific from Brian Williamson, with this one being a Cornerstone Royal Male Sid daughter out of a dam by Glenside Lion King.
And making 1000gns was Corbo Top Tup from Adrian Liggett. He’s a son of Mullan Playboy out of a dam by Waen Maradonna.
The reserve male champion from the pre-sale show, Derryvore Terminator went unsold at 350gns.
And very late in the sale Paul O’Connor sold Drumgooland Tattoo for 4500gns. This is a Baltier Rascal son out of a Cowal ewe sired by Kelso Pavarotti and sold to Henry Gamble, Robert Kennedy, James Adams and Martin Cromlie.
