A total of 313 yearlings have been catalogued for the Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale on Sept. 6. Bradsell (GB) (Tasleet {GB}), the winner of the 2022 G2 Coventry S., is a graduate of the inaugural sale last year, as is Weatherbys Super Sprint victor Eddie's Boy (GB) (Havana Grey {GB}), and listed winner New Collection (GB) (Brazen Beau {Aus}). There are full- or half-siblings to 58 group and listed performers. In addition, 43 yearlings are out of mares who earned listed or group black type while racing.

Lot 66, a Washington DC (Ire) half-sister to Eddie's Boy from Bearstone Stud is a lot of note. Some of the other highlights include a Profitable (Ire) half-brother to G2 Shannon S. winner Yonkers (Medaglia d'Oro) (lot 125) from Lynn Lodge Stud; Bearstone will offer a Mayson (GB) half-brother to group winner and G1 Commonwealth Cup S. third Ventura Rebel (GB) (Pastoral Pursuits {GB}) as lot 218; lot 73, a Profitable (Ire) half-sister to G1 Al Maktoum Challenge Round 3 hero Salute The Soldier (Ger) (Sepoy {Aus}) is part of The National Stud draft; and Dark Angel's lot 49, is a half-sister to group winners Amade (Ire) (Casamento {Ire}) and Nakuti (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}) from Castledillon Stud.

All yearlings catalogued are eligible for the £100,000 Tattersalls Somerville Auction S., as well as the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction S., held five weeks later. In addition, 88 fillies are registered for the Great British Bonus Scheme and are eligible to win up to £20,000 in bonus prize-money per qualifying race.

Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said, “It is a fitting tribute to the sale's ethos of precocious, well conformed yearlings that the Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale and its predecessor the Tattersalls Ascot Yearling Sale have produced Royal Ascot 2-year-old winners for two consecutive years. The strength of last year's sale and the outstanding season enjoyed by its graduates to date has resulted in a catalogue of real quality and depth. We are also looking forward to the inaugural £100,000 Tattersalls Somerville Auction S. which provides an additional incentive to buyers, alongside the Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale's burgeoning reputation as a consistent source of top-class juvenile talent.”
