Frankel: there are 22 yearlings by the top-class sire in the sale | Juddmonte

An array of outstanding yearlings have been cataloged for Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. The sale takes place from October 3 to October 5 and features yearlings by some of the world's best stallions, including Dubawi (Ire), Frankel (GB), Sea The Stars (Ire), Kingman (GB), Lope De Vega (Ire), Siyouni (Fr) and Wootton Bassett (GB). 

The sale numbers 532 lots, all of which are eligible for the lucrative Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme, which is set to increase in value from £20,000 to £25,000 in 2024 and has paid out over £7,500,000 in bonus prize money to 329 individual winners to date.

The final yearling by the late Galileo (Ire) also features in the line-up in the shape of lot 310, the Glenvale Stud-drafted half-sister to Rose Bowl S. winner Method (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}). 

Commenting on the catalogue, Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said, “Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale annually showcases so many of the finest yearlings to be found anywhere in the world and this year's catalogue has all the quality that buyers have come to expect from Europe's premier yearling sale. 

“Europe's leading yearling consignors consistently send their elite yearlings to Book 1 of the October Yearling Sale confident that so many of the world's leading owners hold the sale in the highest esteem and the 532 yearlings catalogued for this year's sale are the cream of the European crop.”

He added, “Not only does the sale feature an extraordinary number of yearlings by all of the very best stallions currently standing in Europe, it also continues to reward owners with the hugely popular Book 1 Bonuses which have been increased to £25,000 this year. 

“More than £7.5 million in Book 1 Bonus prize money has already been paid directly to owners and our commitment to the scheme ensures that the best European yearlings continue to earn the best prize money.”

Among the “cream of the crop” are 59 siblings to Classic and Group 1 winners, including Aunt Pearl (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), Battaash (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), Blue Point (Ire), Cachet (Ire) (Aclaim {Ire}), Eldar Eldarov (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}), Lezoo (GB) (Zoustar {Aus}), Mishriff (Ire), Persian King (Ire), Romantic Warrior (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}), Sea The Moon (Ger), Snow Lantern (GB) (Frankel {GB}), The Platinum Queen (Ire) (Cotai Glory {GB}), Victoria Road (Ire) (Saxon Warrior {Jpn}) and Uni (GB) (More Than Ready).

Beautifully-bred fillies who have had significant recent pedigree updates include the Siyouni half-sister to the Group 1 Nassau S. winner Al Husn (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and the Pinatubo (Ire) half-sister to the Grade 1 Saratoga Derby winner Program Trading (GB) (Lope De Vega {Ire}). 

Others to catch the eye include the Camelot (GB) own-sister to Group 1 Irish Champion S. winner Luxembourg (Ire) and the Lope De Vega half-sister to four time Group 1 winner Alcohol Free (Ire) (No Nay Never), who sold for 5,400,000 gns at last year's Tattersalls December Mares Sale.
