Rocco tops at stunning new sale
A new bloodstock auction, held by Brightwells after racing on the third day of the Cheltenham Festival, proved an outstanding success.

Top of the list was a four-year-old gelding called Minella Rocco
(Lot 17), who had made his racing debut five days earlier
when landing a point-to-point at Horse & Jockey in Ireland.
It took a bid of £260,000 by Kieran McManus to close out rival bidders.

Vendor Johnn Nallen said: “I’m happy with that – it’s worked very well. I bought him as a store for €48,000 in June and he won nicely before we bought him to market.”
