Top-class Tattersalls’ Book One
We were delighted to find a few gems in Tattersall’s Book One last week.
Lot 90, a smashing son of super-sire Frankel, out of the G2-placed Trophee, herself a half-sister to Champion racemare TREVE. From the family of Champion G1 winner and sire, TAMARISK and produced from Ballylinch Stud, one of the leading farms in Europe. He is set to head to the yard of James Ferguson.
Lot 334, a beautifully-bred daughter of Fastnet Rock, she’s a three-parts sister in blood to Oaks heroine QUALIFY. She’s an athletic filly with a great walk to match her extraordinary pedigree. She will be heading to Classic-winning trainer, Hugo Palmer.
Lot 342, a cracking colt by top-class stallion Sea The Stars, out of the Stakes-placed mare Hot Sauce. He is from the super-speedy family of G1, Royal Ascot winner PROHIBIT. He is going to Hugo Palmer.
Lot 434 is a gorgeous colt by first-season sire Shalaa out of the Stakes-producing mare Mathool. He is a half-brother to Listed winner, ERYSIMUM, from the family of G1 winner VETURA STORM and leading first-season sire GUTIFAN. He is going to Hugo Palmer.
Looking forward to finding some more top-class yearlings this week in Book Two at Tattersalls.
