Blog: Horses To Follow at Tattersalls

4th October 2017

The final day of Tattersalls October Yearling Sales is sure to be a cracker, with several high class entries set to go under the hammer.

An early entry that is sure to prove popular amongst the early bidders is Lot 347 – Dubawi out of Attraction. This colt is a half-brother to recent Group 3 winner Elarqam who is unbeaten to date and hails from a Group 1 family. The dam Attraction was a dual Guineas winner who won 10 of her 15 starts, and finished her 2 year-old career as Champion Filly in both Britain and Europe.

Lot 347 – Dubawi / Attraction is sure to go well!

Lot 381 received a timely boost this weekend, as this bay filly out of Cassandra Go is half-sister to Halfway To Heaven – dam of recent Prix D’Opera winner, and dual classic placed, Rhododendron. This filly is by Sprint Cup winner Invincible Spirit who has proved himself a reliable sire, with Group 1 winners Signs Of A Blessing, Lawman, Fleeting Spirit, Kingman and Shalaa just some of his progeny to score at the highest level.

The already named Gloam is the first foal of high-class mare Dank. The multiple Group 1 winning filly is best known for conquering America in the Beverly D Stakes and Breeders’ Cup, but has a host of stakes victories on her English CV too. Gloam is by champion sire Galileo, and is sure to be popular amongst the big hitters. The third dam, Masarika, was a high class mare herself with victories in the Group 1 French Guineas and Prix Robert Papin to her name. This family oozes class, and when Lot 418 enter the ring there are sure to be fireworks.

The final lot of Book 1 is possibly the most exciting, and could easily command a huge price. Lot 502 is consigned by Camas Park Stud in Ireland, and their bay colt is related to a host high-class individuals. This individual is the third of four colts the mare Hveger has foaled by Galileo, and it is clear to see why this has cross has been used multiple times. This colt is a full brother to this year’s Royal Ascot winners Idaho and the sensational globe-trotter Highland Reel who has won Group One’s across three continents.
