That was for Townlaw Silver, a January 2011-born son of Go-Farm Allen Scooby-Duu from Bryce Sloan, Darnlaw Farm, Auchinleck. He comes from one of the very best families at Denmire, The Silvers, and is out of the prizewinning dam, the 13,255kg Denmire Goldwyn Silver 19 SP EX92. His pedigree includes five straight generations of EX classified dams. Silver was knocked down to David Gemmell, Drongan House for the top price of 3400gns.
