A full-brother to the Grand Prix winning mare Uskerty Diamond Lady is among a selection of 14 foals which will go under the hammer at the Traditional Irish Horse Association select foal sale at Cavan Equestrian Centre tomorrow, October 1. This sale runs in conjunction with the youngstock sport horse sale at the complex.

By Carrick Diamond Lad out of Uskerty Barnaby, the April-born foal is also closely related to Grade C show jumper Uskerty Ruffo and eventer Uskerty Carrick Flight. Uskerty Diamond Lady's results this year includes two wins and two seconds, as well as a sixth place finish in the Connollys Red Mills Munster Grand Prix Series.

Also among the foals on sale is a colt by the thoroughbred Elusive Emir who won the Mountbellew All Ireland Foal Championship this summer.

There are also foals by Le One, Cougar and Cruising for Chicks, by the recently-deceased Cruising. The latter is out of one of the last mares by the thoroughbred Alderbrook and is expected to attract much attention.

Irish Draughts dominate the catalogue at the sales complex on Thursday. There will be horses of all ages, from foals to older broodmares.
