Broken down, this year's sale comprises 747 horses and fillies in/out of training and 163 broodmares, ten of whom have foals at foot.
Cheveley Park Stud, Godolphin, Juddmonte Farms and Shadwell Estates have almost 200 lots catalogued between them while the 163 broodmares catalogued include those in foal to Belardo, Dabirsim, Intello, Kodiac, Lope De Vega, New Bay, Shalaa and Teofilo.
“Last year’s Tattersalls July Sale achieved record turnover which will be a hard act to follow," said Tattersalls' chairman Edmond Mahony, "but we have catalogued more than 900 lots for this year’s Tattersalls July Sale and as well as being the largest July Sale since 2008, it is a catalogue of real quality and diversity. The July Sale is a consistent source of Group 1 performers and producers and the uniquely popular July Sale formula of quality breeding stock combined with high class horses in training looks set to attract the usual mix of domestic and international buyers."
"She'll head back to Ireland," said Clarke of the daughter of Street Cry sold in foal to Belardo. "I liked the model, she's very attractive and there's a lot happening in the family."
"She will come back to Hazelwood Stud and has been bought on behalf of Emirates Park Racing," said O'Brien. "She is a fast filly with some ability."
"She's been bought for a new, undisclosed client," said Sackville. "She'll most likely go overseas and has been bought as a breeding prospect.Obviously she's a full-sister to a very good horse in Violence and her pedigree goes back to a great American filly in Sky Beauty. She's an attractive, scopey filly."With the Darley drafts you get full disclosure and very nicely bred fillies - it's a great opportunity."
"It's hard to buy black-type mares, especially in foal to Exceed And Excel," said Houldsworth. "She was good on the track and a lovely type."
"She obviously has a lot of international appeal - we know her very well because of what her sister achieved," said Tom Pritchard-Gordon. "She's a lovely individual - the two-year-old with Charlie Appleby looks he could be ok and could nick a bit of black type, which would help."He added: "Australia would be her likeliest destination. She's been bought for a partnership. We'll get all our ducks in a row before we decide which stallion we send her to, she could be going somewhere on the way down to Australia or visiting an Australian sire. It's all up in the air at the moment."
"Obviously he's by Fastnet Rock and he has the right profile to fit well into the Hong Kong programme," said Barberini. "They've had their eyes on him for a while. He won't run again over here."
"The family speaks for itself," said Tom Pritchard-Gordon, who confirmed that the mare would be sent back to Australia. "She's easy to mate and she's by Shamardal, who looks like he'll be a good broodmare sire. She was quite a good race filly herself as well."
