In Ireland, Loughtown Stud owner Philippe Hinojosa out-bid Highflyer Bloodstock's David Minton & paid top price of €160,000 (A$256,000) for a Hernando filly (out of 2001 Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks winner Super Tassa) on Day-1 of the 3-session (1 select & 2 open) Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale at Fairyhouse, reported racingpost.co.uk.
