English King Wildcard for Tattersalls Autumn HIT Sale


English King | Tattersalls

English King (Fr) (Camelot {GB}), a listed winner and rated 118 by Timeform, has been entered in the Tattersalls Autumn Horses-in-Training Sale as a wildcard. Favoured in the G1 Investec Derby, the Bjorn Nielsen runner was fifth that day, and added a fourth in the G3 Gordon S. in July. Bred by Ecurie des Monceaux et al, English King was most recently sixth in the G1 Grand Prix de Paris at ParisLongchamp on Sept. 13. Consigned by Ed Walker Racing, he sells as lot 1153A.

“I genuinely believe English King is the best horse I have ever trained and I will be very sorry to see him sold,” said Walker. “He is an outstanding prospect for the future having only raced six times and has all the credentials to attract potential buyers from throughout the world. He is a horse who loves fast ground and like all top-class horses has the ability to quicken off a fast pace as demonstrated in the Derby where he had the fastest final three furlongs of all.”

Out of the winning Platonic (GB) (Zafonic), the €210,000 Arqana October yearling is a half-brother to GSW Pacifique (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}) and to French Listed winner Prudenzia (Ire) (Dansili {GB}). The latter is the dam of Group 1 winner Magic Wand (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and Irish highweight and G1 Irish Oaks heroine Chicquita (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}). The sale begins at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 26 and lasts until Oct. 29.
