Sivoliere | Scoop Dyga

Tattersalls has released the catalogue for its two-day February Sale on Jan. 30 and 31, with the listed-winning and Group 3-placed Sivoliere (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) (lot 136), in foal to Kingman (GB), expected to be among the highlights of the 401 fillies, broodmares, colts and geldings, yearlings and 2-year-olds catalogued.

The 8-year-old Sivoliere is carrying her fourth foal. Her third foal, a Frankel (GB) filly, realized 360,000gns at last year’s Tattersalls December Foal Sale before Sivoliere herself sold for 575,000gns the following week. Sivoliere is a granddaughter of the G1 Coronation S. winner Sophisticat (Storm Cat) and therefore a great granddaughter of the great American champion Serena’s Song.

The broodmare section of the catalogue also includes mares in foal to the likes of Dark Angel (Ire), New Approach (Ire), Night of Thunder (Ire) and Sea the Moon (Ger).

The Castlebridge Consignment brings the largest draft (28), while Godolphin has 20 including the fillies Memphis (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) (lot 156), a half-sister to G1 Fillies’ Mile winner Lyric of Light (GB) (Street Cry {Ire}); Paschalia (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) (lot 141), a daughter of G1 Preis von Europa winner Baila Me (Ger) (Samum {Ger}); and the listed-placed Strings of Life (GB) (Slade Power {Ire}) (lot 152) from the great family of Alidiva (Ire), Ali-Royal (Ire) and Sleepytime (Ire).

Other fillies to catch the eye include the listed-winning and group-placed I’ll Have Another (Ire) (Dragon Pulse {Ire}) (lot 120); the winning I’m Available (Ire) (Nathaniel {Ire}) (lot 119), a daughter of the G3 Coral Charge Sprint S. winner and GI Nearctic S.-second Night Carnation (GB) (Sleeping Indian {GB}); Irish Steps (Giant’s Causeway) (lot 8), an unraced daughter of GI Canadian International winner Sarah Lynx (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}); and Jasmine B (Ire) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) (lot 14), a half-sister to Group 3 winner and multiple Group 1-placed Jack Naylor (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}).

The colts and geldings in training include Gormanstown Racing’s Raise You (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) (lot 129). The 4-year-old colt won the Listed Fairway S. at Newmarket last spring and was third in the G3 Rose of Lancaster S. in August and is rated 114 by Timeform.

“The Tattersalls February Sale continues to be a source of high-quality breeding stock and horses in training with the dam of last year’s multiple group-winning 2-year-old A’Ali being a prime example as is Dramatic Device, a 20,000gns purchase at last year’s February Sale who subsequently sold for 220,000gns at the Autumn Horses in Training Sale,” said Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony. “Along with the 2-year-olds and yearlings on offer, this year’s February Sale looks certain to attract the usual diverse mix of domestic and international buyers who have made the Tattersalls February Sale such a consistently popular fixture.”
