Brace of Frankel Millionaires as Final Book 1 Session Gets Underway


Frankel | Juddmonte

Within two lots and just 40 minutes into the final Book 1 session of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale two colts by Frankel (GB) sold for 1.9 millions gns and 2 million gns, respectively.

The first, lot 379 from Luca and Sara Cumani's Fittocks Stud, is out of the winning Pivotal (GB) mare Blue Waltz (GB) from the family of champion 2-year-old filly Blue Duster (Danzig) and was bought by MV Magnier of Coolmore.


Moments later lot 381 was the latest selection by Richard Knight, and he hails from the Watership Down Stud draft that was also responsible for the current sale-topper at 2.8 million gns. This colt, whose dam is the four-time winner Bold Lass (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), is a grandson of the multiple stakes winner My Branch (GB) (Distant Relative {Ire}) from the extended family of Group/Grade 1 winners Make Believe (GB), Dubawi Heights (GB) and Tante Rose (Ire).
