Zarak Share One Of The Highlights Of Tattersalls Online January Sale

Zarak | The Aga Khan Studs

A stallion share in His Highness The Aga Khan's promising stallion Zarak (Fr) (lot 63) is one of 65 lots catalogued for the Tattersalls Online January Sale on Jan. 18-19. In addition, several breeding rights will be offered, as well as 36 horses in/out-of-training, some broodmares, a pair of 2-year-olds, a yearling by Eqtidaar (Ire) (lot 18) and one point-to-point entry.

The son of Dubawi (Ire) and Arc heroine Zarkava (Ire) (Zamindar) already has group winners Purplepay (Fr), Baiykara (Fr), Sirjan (Ger), Lavello (Ire), and Lizaid (Ger) in his first two crops, as well as the Classic-placed duo of Times Square (Fr) and La Parisienne (Fr). He stands for €60,000 this year. The share will provide one nomination per year from 2023 onwards and an additional nomination in 2024 and in every even-numbered year thereafter.

Other lots of note including breeding rights to UK/Ireland Champion First-Season Sire Havana Grey (GB) (lot 66), besides additional breeding rights in Charming Thought (GB) (lot 64), Harry Angel (Ire) (lot 65), Profitable (Ire) (lot 59), Ribchester (Ire) (lot 60), Territories (Ire) (lot 61) and Time Test (GB) (lot 62). G1 Champion Novices Hurdle winner Cilaos Emery (Fr) (Califet {Fr}) (lot 44) will be offered by Willie Mullins's Closutton Stables.

Seven of the 65 lots are part of the Lance Bloodstock Reduction, including Represent Yourself (Ire) (Oratorio {Ire}) in foal to Equiano (Fr), and three-time winner Satin Snake (GB) (Aclaim {Ire}) (lot 29), who won at Kempton earlier this week.

Trainer Ger O'Leary, disucssing the Lance Bloodstock Reduction, said, “Lance Bloodstock is reducing numbers in order to make space for a number of homebred 2-year-olds that are in training in my stables. Lance Bloodstock also plans on purchasing a select number of 2-year-olds in the upcoming breeze-up sales. The horses-in-training that are being offered have won many races. They have all passed a rigorous vetting process and all have recent racing form.

“Lance Bloodstock made the decision to sell with Tattersalls Online because it causes no disruption to the training routine of the horses and avoids the expense of sending staff to the sales for two days.”
