11/10/18 4 out of 5 yearlings sold at Book I of the Tattersalls October Sales ...
... but not the greatest sale for Stauffenberg Bloodstock
consigned 5 yearlings in Book I of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales and 4 of them sold with an average of GNS117,500 and a median of GNS120,000. This was by far the worst Book I Sale for the consignor and confirms the danger and bias in the current market place and especially in Book I if not all required criteria are fulfilled.
However all yearlings are heading to top trainers and can hopefully proof their quality on the racecourse. Lot 13
, the filly by GOLDEN HORN
ex NINA CELEBRE
was purchased by the Australian Sun Bloodstock and is heading to Joseph O'Brien in Ireland. Lot 26
, a colt by KINGMAN
out of PEINTURE ABSTRAITE
did not reach the reserve set by his owner, so went for Ballymore Thoroughbreds to Andre Fabre in France. Lot 77
, a colt by SEA THE STARS
was purchased by Jamie McCalmont and Philippa Mains on behalf of American Jon Kelly and is going to Jessica Harrington, whereas Lot 234
, a colt by CHARM SPIRIT
, purchased by Stroud Coleman Bloodstock on behalf of Godolphin is pencilled for Simon Crisford and Lot 367
, Favorite Moon by SEA THE MOON
was purchased by William Haggas for an undisclosed client and had the shortest ways to their new homes within Newmarket.
