Classical Wave Tops Tattersalls Online Sale


Classical Wave | Tattersalls

Classical Wave (GB) (Gleneagles {Ire}) (lot 33) brought 240,000 guineas to top the fourth Tattersalls Online Sale which was held on Tuesday. The price is a new record for a colt/gelding in training on the online platform.

Purchased by Oliver St Lawrence Bloodstock from the Highfield Bloodstock draft, the 4-year-old gelding is a dual winner on the all-weather and is a half-brother to G1 Irish St Leger third Weekender (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and that gelding's full-brother Media Stream (GB) (Frankel {GB}), who was third at listed level at Saint-Cloud. The bay's second dam is the breeding-shaping blue hen Hasili (Ire) (Kahyasi {Ire}).

“He's been purchased on behalf of Fawzi Nass with the Bahrain International and the King's Cup next year in mind,” said Oliver St Lawrence. “He looks a progressive horse and he may have a run or two in Britain over the summer.”

“It's the first time I've used Tattersalls Online and I found the whole process very easy and efficient,” St Lawrence added.

Crimbourne Bloodstock Ltd. offered the 6-year-old mare Vegas Blue (Ire) (Getaway {Ger}) (lot 2), and Coolmara Stables made the winning bid of 75,000gns. A winner of a National Hunt flat listed race, the daughter of Bella Venezia (Ire) (Milan {GB}) is in foal to Nathaniel (Ire), who just celebrated the win of G2 Prix Hocquart victor Bubble Gift (Fr) on Monday.

Overall, 19 lots sold of 26 offered for a gross of 493,800gns. The average was 25,989gns and the median was 10,500gns.

“The Tattersalls Online platform continues to grow with a new record for a colt/gelding in training of 240,000 guineas for Classical Wave and a head-to head battle between Middle Eastern and Australian interests,” said Tattersalls Chairman Edmon Mahony. “The number of interested bidders continues to increase as does the quality and quantity of the horses on offer. This is only the fourth Tattersalls Online Sale and the positive response from both vendors and purchasers is encouraging for the future development of Tattersalls Online Sales which have already clearly demonstrated their appeal to domestic and international buyers.”
