Prices Rise At Monart Sale

November 11th, Co. Wexford, Ireland: Ireland’s only elite horse sale, run by riders, for riders, The Monart Sale, this year presented by Sprenger, once again delivered a record sales figure despite global economic pressures.

The 2022 average sale price was up 10.5% on previous years, with an average of €16,896, and six lots breaking the €30,000 mark, whilst the clearance rate still topped 76%

“Once again, the sale has exceeded expectations and grown more than we could have expected.  This year we’ve had buyers from around the world, in addition to strong Irish sales.” confirmed sale Director, Niall Griffin.

This year’s sale again attracted buyers from across the world including the UK and Ireland, Mexico, Belgium, France, the USA and Canada, Germany, and France.  Notable listed buyers include Ireland’s Aoife Clark, Lucienne Bellissimo (USA), Noor Slaoui (MOR), Harry Dzenis (UK) and European Junior Gold Medallist, Ibble Watson.  

We will also see some of this year’s graduates make their way to world number 1, Tim Price (NZL), and leading Irish rider Austin O’Connor.  All the world’s top 3 ranked riders now have Monart Graduates as part of their stable, with 7 out of the world’s top 10 having purchased horses via The Monart Sale.

Success for the Monart Graduates continues at pace with Hot Bobo taking the CCI3*L win at Tryon International, this month, with Monart sale regular Karl Slezak (CAN).  Lot 66 will be the latest Monart Graduate to head out stateside to join Team Slezak Eventing, as a new acquisition for Katlyn Hewson-Slezak.
