TOBERDANE Bournville Star, owned by Padraig Howley, won the three-year-old Potential Event Horse class at the RDS, so there was no doubt that there would be a large interest in this well turned out gelding when it came up for sale at Cavan last week. Bidding was intense, which helped this Lot to achieve the top price of €16,500.
Strong trade throughout the sales day ensured that Turnover, Clearance and Percentage were all up on the same sale in 2020 and, with floor, online and telephone bidding, many countries were represented in the locations of new homes.
