Listed-winning and Group 1-placed 2-year-old filly Flotus (Ire) (Starspangledbanner {Aus}), the second-highest rated juvenile filly currently trained in Britain, will be offered at this year's Tattersalls December Mares Sale on Nov. 30.

A 125,000gns purchase from last year's edition of Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Flotus broke her maiden at first asking on May 22 for trainers Simon and Ed Crisford, earning 'TDN Rising Star' status. She missed the board in her next three tries but bounced back to take Ripon's Listed Champion Two Yrs Old Trophy S. on Aug. 30 before finishing second to Tenebrism (Caravaggio) in the G1 Cheveley Park S. on Sept. 25. Flotus is the second winner out of Floriade (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), and is third in the betting for next year's G1 1000 Guineas.

“Flotus has been a joy to train,” said Simon and Ed Crisford. “She is a sound filly with a good temperament. She performed at the highest level throughout her 2-year-old campaign and she has the scope to train on as an outstanding 3-year-old.”

Speaking on behalf of the owners, Arthur Hoyeau said, “Flotus is an exceptional 2-year-old filly and has all the attributes to be a top-class 3-year-old. She is deservedly the highest rated 2-year-old filly in Britain and a credit to Simon and Ed Crisford who have always regarded her as an exceptional talent. She will have huge appeal to owners and breeders from all over the world.”
