Wednesday 11th May 2022 – ThoroughBid is set to sell their second Grade 1 winner next month, as the Kate & Andrew Brooks-owned Itchy Feet will headline the online auction house’s June Sale.


Belfast Banter, who sold for £130,000 in November, was the first top-level winner to go under ThoroughBid’s online hammer, and bidding will begin on the 2020 Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase winner at 9am on Friday 10th June.


Itchy Feet will be joined by fellow Brooks-owned chaser Rouge Vif, twice a winner in Grade 2 company and now trained by Paul Nicholls.


For the first time since holding the inaugural auction in September, ThoroughBid’s June Sale will take place on a Friday. Bidding goes live at 9am, with lots finishing at two-minute intervals from 12pm.


Closing date for entries into the June Sale is 5pm on Monday 30th May.


James Richardson, CEO of ThoroughBid, said: “We are delighted that the Brooks family have entrusted us with the sale of these two great horses. The sale of Belfast Banter, for £130,000, showed prospective consigners that we can provide a successful mix of pre-sale promotion and accessible online bidding. 


“As eight-year-olds with a very high level of form in the book, you’d like to think that both Itchy Feet and Rouge Vif still have big days ahead of them and will take their new owners to major race meetings in the season ahead. We look forward to seeing the bids fly in for these two talented and proven individuals from 9am on Friday 10th June.”
